The Dayton Flyers men’s basketball team is a midsize major college basketball program that competes in NCAA Division I and the Atlantic 10 Conference (A-10) representing the University of Dayton in Ohio. The Flyers play their home games.
A 2015 analysis of college basketball team valuations placed Dayton No. 23 in the country with 2014 corrected revenues in excess of $16.6 million (highest for non-football conference applications ) and a valuation of nearly $84 million (second highest for non-football conference programs and higher than programs like Florida, Texas, and Michigan).
After Miller’s departure for Indiana, the faculty hired Oklahoma City Thunder assistant coach and Dayton alum Anthony Grant as head coach on March 30, 2017. Grant formerly served as head coach at VCU and Alabama. His first season at Dayton saw the Flyers finish 14-17 overall, the first time since the 05-06 season the team finished with a losing record.
