Xavier's Miller to Arizona
Sean Miller of Xavier has accepted the head-coaching job at Arizona, ending a sometimes frustrating search for a high-profile replacement for Hall of Famer Lute Olson.
The university announced the hiring Monday after a confusing few hours in which it first was reported by several media outlets that Miller had turned down the job.
"We believe we've brought in the best young coach in the country," Arizona athletic director Jim Livengood said.
Miller, 40, went 120-47 record in five seasons at Xavier, guiding the team to the NCAA Tournament four times. Arizona won the NCAA championship under Olson in 1997 and has made three other trips to the Final Four.
