WATCH LIVE: Archie Miller to be Introduced as IU Men's Basketball Coach

Archie Miller will be introduced as the new head coach for the Indiana University men's basketball team on Monday.

Miller, 38, is going to be introduced at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall.

Eyewitness News will be carrying a live stream of the press conference provided by our sister station WISH-TV in Indianapolis.

The press conference is scheduled to start Monday at 2 p.m.

Indiana University Vice President and Director Intercollegiate Athletics Fred Glass said, “ While there was great interest in this position, Archie Miller was on my short list from the very beginning. The more I learned about him, the more convinced I became that he is the coach we need to meet our high expectations for many years to come. First, he has the commitments to compliance, wellness, and academics that we require at Indiana. A coach's son with the headiness and toughness to flourish as a 5'9 major college point guard, Archie is a proven leader, proven winner, proven recruiter, and a proven player developer with a defense-first mentality that will help us win championships. Perhaps most importantly, he understands and embraces the special stature of Indiana University basketball and the critical relationship it must have with its former players, Indiana high school players and programs, and the entire State of Indiana."

Miller coached at Dayton from 2011-2017 with an overall record of 139-63. His teams won back-to-back Atlantic 10 championships and reached four straight NCAA Tournaments, including a trip to the Elite Eight in 2014.

"I am honored to be the head coach at Indiana University," said Miller. "IU is one of the greatest basketball programs and academic institutions in the country and I cannot wait to get started. With peerless fan support, outstanding facilities and tradition, a beautiful campus, and located in one of the most fertile recruiting areas in the country, IU is a dream destination for me and my family. I cannot wait to connect with former players, current players, and future players and all of Hoosier Nation. I want to thank all of the great people and players at the University of Dayton who have supported me along the way. I look forward to outlining my vision for IU basketball and offering my sincerest appreciation for the great people at Dayton on Monday."
