Will Archie Miller Be Right For IU?

first_imgRecently Indiana University hired Archie Miller to replace Tom Crean.  The last several years Miller coached the Dayton Flyers.  He took them to several NCAA Tournament appearances.Miller is probably known for his low-key appearance and a no-nonsense approach to coaching.  He is also young and comes from a basketball family.  His older brother, Sean, is the head coach at Arizona University.At Dayton Miller took a group of no-name ball players and molded them into a very efficient basketball team.  The emphasis here is on “team”.  Watching Miller’s teams play, you have no idea who the “go-to” guy is.  All 5 players seem to have equal rolls in his offensive and defensive schemes.  This is what I like about Archie Miller and why I think he will be a good fit, not only for the present group at IU, but in the future.Even though Miller seems to have a low-key approach on the sidelines, he has been known to really be intense during his basketball practices.  Miller began his career as an Ohio State assistant, so he knows the Big Ten atmosphere.  Good Luck, Archie, at IU!last_img
