Dayton coach Archie Miller has gotten a contract extension for the third straight year after leading the Flyers to a share of the Atlantic 10 regular-season title and the NCAA Tournament.

Miller's extension adds one year and additional compensation, taking him through the 2022-23 season.

The Flyers are 115-55 during Miller's five seasons of reviving the program. After Dayton failed to reach the NCAA Tournament for four straight years, Miller led the Flyers to the Elite Eight in 2014, beating Ohio State to start their run. They won two games in the tournament last year - including one on their home floor in the First Four - and lost in the first round to Syracuse 71-50 last week.

Miller's winning percentage is second only to Tom Blackburn in school history.
