Dayton Flyers coach Archie Miller’s favorite band? Think grunge

Dayton Flyers coach Archie Miller avoided the temptation to name Dr. Willie Morris and the Dayton pep band and picked a band many of the UD fans in the lower section at UD Arena have probably never heard of or at least have never listened to willingly: Alice in Chains.

Alice in Chains was a popular grunge band from Seattle in the 1990s when Miller, 37, was in high school.

Jim Boeheim, coach of Dayton’s first-round opponent, Syracuse, picked Bruce Springsteen. Archie Miller’s brother Sean, coach of Arizona, picked John Mayer.
