Sean Miller enjoyed a lot of winning during his time as Arizona Wildcats head basketball coach. Unfortunately, he also carried a lot of baggage. Miller has been constantly under investigation due to recruiting violations. At the end of the day, Arizona decided that the ends didn’t justify the means as it pertained to Sean Miller.
Miller and the Wildcats announced earlier today that they would be parting ways after 12 years.
Miller was charged with head coach responsibility for failure to promote atmosphere of compliance. Administration stuck by Miller for 4 years.

Sean Miller’s son, Austin, wasn’t too pleased with the decision.
“302 – 109, 73% winning percentage, 3x PAC-12 coach of the year, 5x PAC-12 conference championships, 3x PAC-12 conference tournament championships, FIBA U-19 gold medal, 2x sweet-sixteens, and 3x elite eights,” Austin Miller wrote on Twitter. “I wish Athletic Director Robbins luck in finding someone to fill those shoes.”
