Sean Miller has been the pinnacle basketball coach at Arizona for 10 seasons now, and after senior day on Saturday, he positive seemed like a man who wouldn’t be again for an 11th 12 months.
Miller addressed followers on the McKale Heart following the Wildcats’ 72-64 loss to Arizona State Saturday afternoon. His emotional assertion made it seem to be it could be the final time he was addressing the fan base.
Test this out:
After that speech reporters requested him what it meant:
Sean Miller requested about being emotional and it sounding like a goodbye and he mentioned he is not going to touch upon it.

To me, it feels like Miller and Arizona are about to half methods. If he was planning to be again he’d be forcefully claiming he was returning for subsequent season.
Dan Wolken chimed in with this:
I’ll say this. If Sean Miller and Arizona negotiated a mutual parting of how within the subsequent few weeks, it could shock precisely no person in faculty basketball.

It’s been a rocky previous couple of years for the Wildcats. Although they gained the Pac-12 and Pac-12 Match in every of the previous two seasons, this system was rocked by its connection to the faculty basketball corruption scandal. Then Arizona struggled this 12 months, ending the common season 17-14 and Eight-10 within the Pac-12.
Miller has gained the Pac-12 common season title 5 occasions in his 10 seasons in Tucson, and the Pac-12 Match 3 times. He’s reached the Candy 16 5 occasions and the Elite Eight 3 times. However he’s by no means taken the Wildcats to the Closing 4 or past, and that’s been a continuing criticism he’s confronted from the Arizona devoted.
