Fresh off the school's first Elite Eight appearance in 30 years, the Dayton Flyers have unveiled a whole new look. The school revealed today a new logo (to go on a new floor at the team's arena) and new men's basketball uniforms.
The old floor at Dayton Arena featured the words "Dayton Flyers" at center court. The new logo is a stylized letter D. The new logo also appears on the shorts of the newly-redesigned uniform.
SUCCESSOR SERIES: Who would succeed Roy Williams?
Dayton revealed the designs for three new uniforms: a white set for home games, red for on the road and a "midnight blue" alternate set.
"Our new logo will certainly be a success factor for our program," Dayton head coach Archie Miller said in a statement. "From the start, I've been an advocate of a unified identity which can continue to sell a new day and age for our program. Our brand is as strong as it's ever been and this will continue to keep us in the nation's basketball mindset.
Which one is your favorite? Me I love the whites, means we are on this floor! pic.twitter.com/rBxMqVbSmF— Arch Miller (@Archie_Miller) July 18, 2014
