Indiana reportedly has found its new head coach and is closing in on a deal.

This news comes after UCLA's Steve Alford, the perceived front-runner, told ESPN last night he is staying with the Bruins.

The 38-year-old Miller is one of the hot names on the head coaching market. He has led Dayton to four straight NCAA Tournament appearances, including a run to the Elite Eight in 2014. He has an overall record of 139-63 (.688).

Miller, the younger brother of Arizona head coach Sean Miller, is a former point guard at NC State. He played for the Wolfpack from 1999-2002.

Update: Indiana has made it official.

This might not be the sexiest hire, but it looks like a good one on paper.
