Arizona ousts Sean Miller

Sean Miller is out at Arizona.

Stadium reported Miller was fired with one year left on his contract.

Faced with five Level I charges by the NCAA, Arizona had stood by Miller for multiple years. With one year left on his contract, Stadium said the university ended the relationship after meeting with Miller on Monday and Tuesday.

Miller reportedly sat down with UA president Robert C. Robbins and athletic director Dave Heeke but didn’t come to any agreement on Monday night. In another meeting Tuesday, Arizona reportedly informed Miller he’d be fired.

Miller, 52, previously coached at Xavier. He guided the Wildcats to five Pac-12 titles and appearances in the NCAA Tournament Elite Eight three ties.

The past four years of his tenure have been clouded by the federal investigation into college basketball’s pay-to-play scheme that also ensnared Louisville, Kansas and Auburn and was announced publicly in September 2017.
