UD extends Archie Miller’s contract

The University of Dayton extended men’s basketball coach Archie Miller’s contract through the 2021-22 season on Thursday.

It’s the second straight year Miller’s contract has been extended. Last March, during the NCAA tournament, UD announced an extension of Miller’s contract throughout the 2018-19 season.

Miller just finished his fourth season at Dayton. He guided the team to the Elite Eight in 2014 and to two NCAA tournament victories and a 27-9 final record this season.

“It’s very humbling. It’s a privilege to coach at a place like this,” Miller said. “Me and my family feel really grateful. (Athletic Director) Tim (Wabler) has been outstanding to work with. There’s not a day that’s gone by that we haven’t had everything we need to be successful. One of the big reasons we are successful is because of our administration. When you add that up, it always feels good to be at a place that wants you. That’s how we feel.”
