By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

“Indiana basketball has a long, rich history of success that dates back generation,” Indiana Athletic Director Scott Dolson said in a statement announcing the decision. “Our five national championships and 22 Big Ten titles make us one of the most accomplished programs in college basketball history. I have high expectations for our program, and we have not competed at a level within the conference or nationally that I believe we should.”

Indiana will pay Miller a $10.3 million buyout.

This season, Miller guided the team to a 12-15 record. He also won 19 and 18 games in his first two seasons at the school.

The NCAA Tournament begins this week. However, the Hoosiers have not played in the tournament since 2016.

The Hoosiers may have made the tournament in 2020. However, the coronavirus pandemic, caused the cancellation of the tournament.

During his time in Bloomington, Miller was 0-7 against the Purdue Boilermakers. The Hoosiers and Boilermakers are big in-state rivals.

“In the days following the completion of our season in the Big Ten Men’s Basketball Tournament, I have spent a great deal of time evaluating our recruiting, student-athlete development, leadership development, and playing philosophy and strategy,” Dolson said. “That review, combined with the on-court results, ultimately led me to conclude that a change in leadership of our program is warranted at this time.”
