Indiana sent out a tweet from its official Twitter account Saturday afternoon confirming the hire.

Miller has been a hot commodity on the coaching market for years after leading the Flyers to the NCAA Tournament the last four seasons. The 38-year-old has a 139-63 record in his six years at Dayton.

The deal makes sense for both sides, particularly after other top candidates like Brad Stevens and Steve Alford made it clear they weren't leaving their current gigs for Indiana. Miller gets a high-profile job running one of college basketball's most storied programs, and the Hoosiers find a proven winner who is capable of taking them to the next level.
