Morgan Miller has generated some March Madness of her own.
While her husband Archie has led the Dayton Flyers on an unlikely run to the Sweet Sixteen, Morgan has attracted attention from television cameras and become a viral sensation with her social media posts.
Morgan Miller has already amassed about 1,000 Twitter followers, but in the wake of her attention-stealing NCAA Tournament appearance that number has increased dramatically. It has helped that Dayton has become the talk of the 2014 NCAA Tournament, knocking off in-state rival Ohio State before toppling the once-unbeaten Syracuse Orange.
Miller was seen going crazy on the sidelines as the Flyers knocked off No. 3 seed Syracuse, a defensive struggle that came down to a last-second miss for the Orange.
It has become something of a March Madness tradition for young and attractive wives of young and talented coaches to become famous. Last year it was Amanda Enfield, whose husband Andy led Florida Gulf Coast University to a place no 15 seed had ever gone before — the Sweet Sixteen.
But Enfield was a former Maxim model, while Morgan Miller seems to be just an everyday woman who likes to pose in parody Miller beer t-shirts and post pictures from road trips with the team.
Other famous significant others have become viral hits as well. In this year’s Winter Olympics, the pregnant girlfriend of shootout hero T.J. Oshie, Lauren Cosgrove, became a hit in her own right.

If the Dayton Flyers can somehow knock off No. 10 seed Stanford next week and advance again to the Elite Eight, expect to see a lot more of Morgan Miller.
