According to multiple reports on Monday morning, the Indiana Hoosiers have relieved head coach Archie Miller of his head coaching duties. Miller had just completed his fourth year with the program earlier this week.
BREAKING: Indiana has parted ways with Archie Miller, sources told @Stadium.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanHoops) March 15, 2021
During his four years in Bloomington, Miller had compiled a 67-58 (.536) overall record and a 33-45 (.423) mark in Big Ten play. While he failed to lead the Hoosiers to a single NCAA Tournament appearance, there’s little debating the program would have made it in 2020 if there had been a postseason. During that year, Indiana finished 20-12 overall.
Unfortunately, the lack of overall success, inconsistency, and regression in year four doomed Miller. Indiana will now pass a massive buyout to move on from Miller, reportedly somewhere around $10 million. There’s little telling who could be in line for the position, but expect Alabama’s Nate Oats and former Michigan coach John Beilein to get some attention. It will be interesting to see who the Hoosiers can land in the coming weeks.
