Dayton and Archie Miller announced a contract extension last week. But that won't keep other schools from pursuing him, multiple sources told on Sunday.

"He'll still get some calls," said one source.

Sources told that Wake Forest and possibly Marquette are expected to reach out to Miller, one way or another, to see if he'd be interested in relocating after three years at Dayton. A source close to Miller reiterated to on Sunday that the 35-year-old Pennsylvania native is happy at Dayton and definitely not looking to parlay postseason success into a new job. But that same reality didn't stop Wake Forest and Marquette from reaching out to VCU's Shaka Smart, and it won't prevent Miller from being pursued, either.

Wake Forest fired Jeff Bzdelik on March 20.

Buzz Williams left Marquette for Virginia Tech on March 21.

Those two jobs are widely considered to be the top jobs currently open.

Dayton's season ended Saturday with a 62-52 loss to top-ranked Florida in the Elite Eight. The Flyers finished 26-11. This was their third Elite Eight in school history.
