The Washington Post featured Archie Miller and his brother Sean this weekend in a story that will likely became an annual tradition as long as Dayton and Arizona are winning in March.

In the story, we get some insight into what the Flyers think of their coach.

“And Archie just, he really works hard at scouting,” said Dyshawn Pierre, Dayton’s Canadian forward. “He’s really a part of everything. He’s part of us. He scouts. He does everything. He’s not one of those coaches who just kind of, he’s not just out there coaching, calling the plays. Behind the scenes, he’s really caring . . . He knows what’s going on all the time.

“And I think that’s what really sets him apart from some other coaches. He’ll literally sit in a room and watch film for hours and hours and break every little thing down, tell us what this guy likes to do well, what they like to do well as a team. It’s on us to listen and we try to listen as much as possible. We have a lot of respect for him and he has a lot of respect for us.”

“You know something,” guard Kyle Davis said, “I think Coach is good at this because he’s been in good situations, you know. Coming from Ohio State and then being with his brother at Arizona, then coming here, just getting a group of guys ready.”
