Reports: Former Arizona head coach Sean Miller accepts job at Xavier
Sean Miller agreed to become the next head coach of Xavier on Saturday, according to multiple reports.
Miller, 53, was the University of Arizona’s head coach from 2009-21. He and the school parted ways following last season’s self-imposed postseason ban due to NCAA violations committed by the program.
Arizona reached seven NCAA tournaments and earned three Elite Eight appearances under Miller, although the Wildcats never reached the Final Four under his leadership.
