Sean Miller Arizona coach sweats. This is a trait all humans have. But, few NCAA basketball coaches sweat as much as Miller, who has turned it into an art. This was Miller during the tournament, he looks like he was pushed into a pool by rowdy teens. We are only a tiny amount of fabric cling away from full-on nipple exposure.

After the game he tried to explain what happened.
“I want to clarify one thing: I didn’t sweat on that day any more (than usual). It’s that I didn’t try out the shirt that I wore. Clearly made an error not having an undershirt and no question I had a bad night, coupled with the fact that we lost. If anything, people may have talked more about me and less about our team, and that may be a good thing as well.”
Sean Miller Arizona |Coach Sean Miller
Miller was announced to be a possible candidate for the vacant head coaching position at Arizona after the tournament , which had spent two years under interim head coaches in the wake of the illness and retirement of Hall of Fame coach Lute Olson. He previously turned the job down before changing his mind and accepting the job on April 6, 2009 despite having never visited the Arizona campus. He was succeeded at Xavier by former assistant Chris Mack. For three months of joining the program, he had already assembled a recruiting class ranked #12 in the nation by Scout.com. He led Arizona to a 16–15 record (10–8 in the Pacific-10 Conference) in his first season, and the Wildcats missed postseason play for the first time in 25 years.
Miller guided Arizona back to college basketball relevance in the 2010–2011 season. Since January 8, 2007 he led Arizona to its first top 10 ranking in the AP poll, and led the Wildcats to their first outright Pac-10 Regular Season Title (its 12th overall), 4th 30+ win season (1st overall), 2nd Elite Eight appearance (9th overall) and its highest coaches poll finish (9th) since the 2004–2005 season. Miller organised a recruiting class that included 4 ESPNU top 100 recruits (#4 by Scout.com), which was widely regarded as a top ten recruiting class. Additionaly, he led the Wildcats to their first unbeaten home record (17–0) in 14 years and was named Pac-10 Coach of the Year. This marked the first time an Arizona coach received this honor since 2003 Lute Olson did. The 17 consecutive home win streak tied for the second most in school history, and is part of a 19-game home streak beginning in the 2009–2010 season Miller’s recruiting has improved.
Sean Miller Press Conference
Arizona Basketball head coach Sean Miller held his first press conference since the season ended abruptly in March. Here is how it all went down.
We are still six months till the start of the 2018-19 Arizona Basketball season, but it’s never too early to find out the latest happenings about our beloved Wildcats.
Coach Sean Miller held his summer press conference and addressed everything from his new head coaching staff, to accessibility of players, returners, incoming freshman and transfers and even the NBA Draft.
Coach Miller started off talking about how accessibility to players has improved and that coaches can spend more time with the players during the summer time. He did mention that Ira Lee and Dylan Smith are wrapping up the first three week session of summer training and that the next batch of players are scheduled to come in.
ext, he discussed his brand new coaching staff. This year there will be two additions joining Assistant Coach Mark Phelps: Danny Peters and Justin Gainey. Miller sees this crew of being able to compliment each other quite well and being to build a real cohesive unit.
Miller then goes on to talk about how the incoming six (Chase Jeter included since he is now eligible) will be an important part of the overall success this next season. However, he truly believes the real success starts with the returners next year. Perfectly said!
Can’t teach experience. The Wildcats will have five returning players next season and all five will have the real opportunity to take that next big step in their career at Arizona.
The next big thing he goes over are the six incoming players for next season: Justin Coleman, Omar Thielmans, Devonaire Doutrive, Chase Jeter, Brandon Williams and Ryan Luther . One thing I want to point out here is when watching and listening to Coach Miller talk about these players you can really see why he attracts some incredible talent. He talks from the heart, he talks the truth and more then anything else you can sense the true passion he has for Wildcat Basketball. Love ya Coach!
Sean Miller Pitt
There were report that Sean Miller discussed Pitt job, but Miller announces he is not a candidate for the job
Pitt beat writer Craig Meyer reported that Pitt AD Heather Lyke and Sean Miller had discussed the open Pitt job, and that Miller had interest in the job.
This had been heavily rumored with the narrative being that Miller wanted the job, but there was a hold up on Pitt’s end on if the risk of Miller was worth it considering the current FBI investigation in college basketball. Heather Lyke has both a background in compliance as well as a law degree and if anybody would be able to determine if Miller’s situation was worth looking past, it would be her.
It is pretty clear that the local Pitt boosters have been pushing the Pitt administration hard to take a look at Sean Miller, but it seemed their main priority was still Dan Hurley, and the news that did manage to get out seemed to back that up.
Although, a few minutes after that Craig Meyer’s report came out, Sean Miller released a statement he said that he has a tremendous amount of respect and admiration for the University and city of Pittsburgh. His memories and friendships of his time as a student athlete are the best and strongest of his lifetime. However, he has one of the great jobs in college basketball at Arizona. He has no interest in becoming the head coach at Pitt. He wish them luck in replacing Jamie Dixon, a tremendous coach and person, who did an incredible job in his time there. – Sean Miller said.
