Sean Miller says he's happy at Arizona and won't jump to Pitt
The Pittsburgh Panthers can cross one name off their list of potential basketball coaches. Sean Miller says he isn't interested in returning to coach his alma mater.
Miller, who has spent the past seven seasons as Arizona's head coach, released this statement on Tuesday:
Miller has posted a 188-61 record at Arizona (with five NCAA Tournament appearances) after going 120-47 in five seasons at Xavier (four tournament appearances). His Wildcats were eliminated by Wichita State in the first round of this year's tournament.
Pitt is in the market for a replacement for Jamie Dixon, who officially was announced as the new head coach at TCU -- his alma mater -- on Tuesday. Dixon had spent the past 13 seasons at Pittsburgh, guiding the team to 11 NCAA Tournament appearances.
