Sean Miller is no longer the basketball coach of the Arizona Wildcats.

According to a Wednesday afternoon statement from the program, Miller has been removed as the leader of the Wildcats after 12 mostly successful seasons. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Arizona announced they will honor the remaining money left on his deal. It’s unclear whether he was fired or if it was mutual, but the fact he’s getting paid out certainly seems to imply it’s the former.

This is absolutely shocking to me. Miller is one of the best coaches in college basketball and he’s now unemployed.

Yes, he was involved in the FBI’s investigation into corruption in college basketball and Arizona was accused of violations under his watch, but so what? College basketball is a sport full of shady business.

Miller won games, and he made multiple tournament runs to the Elite 8. Now, Arizona has shown him the exit and he’s out of a job.

As a D1 coach once told me, sometimes you just have to be willing to look the other way if you want to win games.
