The long list of NCAA violations finally caught up with Sean Miller. The University of Arizona announced on Wednesday that it was firing Miller, who had one year left on his contract. The former Blackhawk and Pitt star has been head coach of the Wildcats for 12 seasons.

Back in September of 2017, the Arizona Basketball Program was target of an FBI investigation. Eventually, they were hit with five level one violations and Miller himself was charged with a lack of overall institutional control. Arizona is still waiting punishment for the violations, along with LSU, Kansas, NC State, Memphis, and Louisville. Miller could face a show cause order for his role in the scandal, which would make him difficult for another school to hire.

In 12 seasons at Arizona, Miller had an overall record of 302-109 and led the Wildcats to three Elite Eight appearances.  Prior to his time in Tucson, Miller spent five years at Xavier, where he compiled a record of 120-47. Last month, Miller’s brother Archie was also fired as head coach at Indiana.

Fire Crapel and bring him home. I’ll take the Miller brothers over the Crapel brothers any day.

No way, before you make statements like that look into what actually Miller did.

His coaching career should be over but I’m sue someone will hire him that wants to win at all costs.

The guy has no integrity and is a liar. He should be done regarding coaching.
