A national audience was introduced to Florida Gulf Coast, head coach Andy Enfield and — most importantly — Enfield’s wife, Amanda, during last year’s NCAA tournament. Amanda, a former model for Maxim and Stuff magazines, proved to be just as captivating as 15-seed FGCU’s run to the Sweet 16.
Well, we’ve got a new Cinderella in 2014, and a matching smoking hot wife to go along with it.
The No. 11-seeded Dayton Flyers have knocked off basketball superpowers Ohio State and Syracuse in their first two games — and introduced us to head coach Archie Miller’s wife, Morgan.
Morgan Miller — not to be confused with the model wife of skier Bode Miller — was featured prominently during Dayton’s win over Syracuse on Saturday in various states of anxiety.
It didn’t hurt that she was wearing a “Dayton High Life” shirt either — a play off her and her husband’s last name. She’s been answering questions from Dayton fans about where to get the shirts — she had them specially made — on her Twitter account, @BballWife4Life, repeatedly over the last 24 hours.
That’s her in the black and white suit last year in Maui.
And her on the left after a game.
She actually looks like a hotter version of Rachael Ray if you look at her long enough. (That isn’t a problem, by the way.)
It was a good weekend (and season) for the Miller family in general, as Sean Miller, Archie’s older brother, led No. 1 seed Arizona to the third round and a Round of 32 matchup with Gonzaga.
It won’t be long before Archie goes the way of Andy Enfield — who went to coach USC this offseason — by trading up for a BCS-level job.
