It's Miller Time For URI Basketball As New Coach Is Named

Ryan Miller is the new men's basketball coach at URI

He will be introduced to the state at 10AM Monday.

.5 years ---approximately 9 million dollars is what Miller, who coached at Indiana University is getting.

The “Archie” that everyone calls him is his nickname. It's a reference to Archie Bunker.

"Archie's goals for this program are the same as mine. Not only do we want to win Atlantic 10 championships, but we want to build a program that competes late into March each year. His passion and enthusiasm are contagious. I am so excited to partner with him in showcasing URI basketball on the national stage., Director of Athletics Thorr Bjorn said

"I want our Rams fan base to know we are going to do things a certain way on and off the court," Miller said. "In transition it doesn't always take off smooth. WE will IMPROVE… WE will be good again… and then WE will be REALLY GOOD! Honoring the process takes time, but we will be relentless in our quest to develop an identity that all of New England will be PROUD of."

Miller is 43 and is expected to be introduced to the state as its new coach Monday.

Rhode Island will add additional charter flights to road games as part of the process. In addition, university officials say they will work on a specific timeline to build a basketball specific complex for training.
