Dayton reached the Sweet 16 as a No. 11 seed on Saturday.

On Monday morning, the school announced that they have signed head coach Archie Miller to a contract extension.

With the coaching carousel in full swing, Miller had become a hot commodity with openings at Marquette and Wake Forest, both of which are really good coaching gigs. But instead of jumping ship, Miller made it known that he would not be leaving the school before the team even packed to make their trip to Memphis for their Sweet 16 games against No. 10 Stanford.

The new deal locks Miller up until the 2018-2019 season. He’s been head coach at the program since the 2011-2012 season and has amassed a 62-37 record in three years. After beating No. 6 Ohio State and No. 3 Syracuse as an at-large bid, the Flyers are 25-10 this year.

    Congratulations Archie. The apples don’t fall far from the tree. You and Sean are great young coaches in the mold of your father. Keep up the good work. As your body of work gets better, don’t be afraid to tell the powers that be “show me the money!!”

    Best wishes and GO Dayton (I went to 1st and 2nd grade there in Miamisburg) and GO CATS! ((I went 3rd grade througth high school in Tucson). The years I would have progressed to college I worked for my uncle in Southeast Asia. I love Tucson and U of A. I don’t get back there but every few years but the Cats are my #1 team… GO CATS. A short 4 game winning streak is all you need boys., Get ur done!!
