It appears as though the talk of Sean Miller being the next basketball coach at Pitt can end. Miller tweeted out a statement that should end speculation that he could be Pitt’s next head coach.
From #APlayersProgram head coach Sean Miller:
“I am not a candidate for the University of Pittsburgh men’s basketball head coaching vacancy. I wish them well in their search for a new coach.”

This statement comes after PSN reported that Miller was interested in the job and also a report by Craig Meyer of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that Miller and Pitt athletic director Heather Lyke had discussed the position.
In the meantime, Pitt, UConn and Rhode Island are all in waiting mode to hear from Dan Hurley on where he will coach next season.
While it’s been reported that Hurley might make his decision today, a source tells PSN that he doesn’t expect to hear anything from Hurley until tomorrow.
If Hurley rejects the offer from Pitt, Lyke’s search for a coach would appear to go back to stage one.
