The University of Dayton announced Monday it extended the contract of coach Archie Miller through the 2018-19 season. Financial terms were not released.
The Flyers, a No. 11 seed in the NCAA Tournament, advanced to the regional semifinals after upsetting Ohio State and Syracuse last week.
"It's a privilege to be the head coach at the University of Dayton," Miller said in a statement. "We are thrilled about our future. The University of Dayton has everything it needs to be among the best. We have great fans, a totally committed administration, and the key pieces are in place."
Miller signed the extension in February following negotiations that started in December, but he asked the school not to announce the deal during the regular season to avoid possible distractions.
"The University of Dayton is committed to a national-level basketball program, and this contract extension demonstrates our belief that Archie Miller is the right leader for our program," athletic director Tim Wabler said in a statement. "We are proud of the academic and competitive success he has led over the last three years, and the momentum of the program is on the path we expect."
Miller has guided the Flyers to 62 victories in three seasons and the team is in the Sweet 16 of the tournament for the first time in 30 years.
