About Coach Archie Miller
University of Dayton head basketball coach Ryan “Archie” Miller is regarded as one of the game’s brightest young coaches.
At just 33, Miller led the Flyers to another successful campaign after reaching the 20-win plateau, advancing to the NIT and winning the 2011 Old Spice Classic. Dayton finished the 2011-12 season 20-13 overall and earned a bid to the National Invitation Tournament for the third straight season.
Miller came to UD from the University of Arizona in 2011 where as Associate Head Coach he helped the Wildcats to a 30-8 season that ended with an Elite Eight berth.
Miller has a recent connection to two teams that just missed the 2011 Final Four. Prior to those years at Arizona, he was at Ohio State for two seasons.
In just nine years in the coaching profession, Miller has been able to coach in the ACC, the Big Ten and the Pac 10 while working in some of the nation’s most fertile recruiting grounds in the East, Midwest and West. His wide range of responsibilities at all of his coaching stops have allowed him to learn from three of the most-respected coaches in the country while developing contacts from coast-to-coast. Every one of these experiences have prepared him to be a Division I head coach.
The 19th coach in Dayton history, Miller is just the sixth Flyer coach in the last 64 years.
