Such a bad hire. Man, the picture in that article is perfect. Wasn't there already plenty of smoke around him for recruiting violations at Xavier?

I've been telling one of my UA buddies they should fire him for at least three years now.

Same. I don't even follow college basketball outside of the final 4 and what gets put right in front of my face. But it seemed clear it was a bad hire early on.

I mean, not a great coach and obviously the recruiting violations, but he brought in some big time recruits during his time.

Sean Miller had some decent seasons and got us some decent players, but he seemed sketchy for a long time. I think it's right to let him go. I do worry that they'll probably overcompensate by hiring somebody unprepared, like a former player. Damon Stoudamire? Jason Terry?

He's been there like 12 years? What have they done in those 12 years? They have had multiple 1 or 2 seeds, and never got out of their region.

it will be hard to find a good coach when your program has under achieved for a decade. Maybe they will get lucky like we did with Monty.

I don't think Miller is more than an average recruiter. He was eating off of the foundation built by Lute Olson.

The program was hungry to win again after a few years of misery post Olson, and the athletic department budget reflected that.

He'd be a tremendous pick up for us. Don't really see the point for the Raps.
