Last month, Pete Thamel of Sports Illustrated mentioned Miller and Xavier coach Chris Mack as "logical fits" if the IU job came open.
This week Miller is preparing his seventh-seeded Flyer to take on 10 seed Wichita State in their NCAA tournament first round matchup scheduled for Friday night.
While Archie Miller does not typically comment on job speculation, his father told the Dayton Daily News this week he chuckles when his son is mentioned for openings such as the one at Missouri (which has been filled) or North Carolina State, his alma mater.
“I think Arch has pretty much put the hammer down on his name,” John Miller, who is a legendary high school basketball coach in Pennsylvania, said. “Most people sort of get the idea after the last two years that he likes it where he’s at. And there’s nothing wrong with being on the top of your league and being able to win the whole thing.”
Sean Miller, John’s son and Archie’s older brother, is the head coach at Arizona.
