After the announcement that Indiana was moving on from Tom Crean, Miller’s name was immediately brought up as a possibility for the Hoosiers.
Miller is coming off a season in which the Flyers won the Atlantic 10 regular season title, but lost in the first round of the NCAA Tournament to Wichita State. In his time at Dayton, Miller quickly turned the Flyers into one of the most consistent mid-major programs. In his six years there, Miller accumulated a record of 139-63, and led the Flyers to four consecutive NCAA Tournaments.
