DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- Dayton basketball coach Archie Miller has received a contract extension through the 2018-19 season.

Monday's announcement comes with the Flyers heading to the round of 16 in the NCAA tournament. They play Stanford on Thursday.

Negotiations began in December and the extension was signed in February, but Miller asked that it not be announced to avoid distractions during the regular season. Financial terms were not disclosed.

In his third season at Dayton, Miller has led the Flyers to their first trip to the regionals in 30 years. His 62 wins are the fifth best in school history.
