    Or leverage?

    I've got some contacts in NC with ties to the university who've told me definitively - Herb Sendek would NOT have remained coach at NC State had he not left for ASU "voluntarily." That place is a mess (the NCSU athletic department, that is).

    I suppose Sean Miller's possible move to Maryland may be evidence that the Arizona athletic department may not be a real happy place, either.

    It's not real leverage if you're not actually willing to leave, and you don't need leverage if the school is already offering you an appropriate contract.

    Note that neither Matta nor Tressel have ever needed to apply any leverage here.

    If Miller is meeting with the Maryland AD, then it's Arizona's move as to whether he stays or goes.

    Sean Miller gets one year Arizona extension

    The University of Arizona's Board of Regents has approved a one-year contract extension for basketball coach Sean Miller through the 2017-18 season.
    Miller's current contract increases yearly to $2.6 million in 2016-17, but he requested that the fifth year be the same as the fourth. He earned $2.2 million last season, along with numerous academic and performance bonuses.

    Billy Donovan: Sean Miller is among elite


    Sean Miller doesn't quite rank No. 2 in our list of the top 50 coaches in college basketball, but the Arizona coach could climb higher than No. 11 soon.

    With the foundation that Arizona’s Sean Miller has established, he’s poised to become one of the “next” coaching icons in college basketball.
    Florida coach Billy Donovan said there’s no need to wait for the Krzyzewskis and Boeheims of the world to retire. He believes Miller belongs in the conversation of elite college basketball coaches "right now."

    “Certainly you can look at a lot of coaches and their longevity,” said Donovan, who has Miller on his coaching staff for the USA Basketball’s Under-18 National team this summer. “But if you look at what Sean has done ..."

    Miller took over at Arizona in the 2009-10 season after the transition to find Lute Olson’s successor was anything but seamless. Kevin O’Neill -- the one-time coach-in-waiting – took over on an interim basis but was fired after one season. Russ Pennell then took over during the 2008-09 season but he was not retained.

    Sources: Arizona Wildcats fire coach Sean Miller

    Sean Miller has been fired as the head coach of Arizona, sources told ESPN.

    Miller had been in Tucson since 2009, leading the Wildcats to seven NCAA tournaments and three Elite Eight appearances. Arizona won at least a share of five Pac-12 regular-season championships under Miller.

    Arizona had been ensnared in the 2017 federal investigation into corruption in college basketball. Former assistant coach Emanuel "Book" Richardson pleaded guilty to one felony count of conspiracy to commit bribery after being accused of accepting $20,000 to steer Arizona players to aspiring sports agent Christian Dawkins. During Dawkins' trial, prosecutors played a call in which Richardson told Dawkins that Miller was paying $10,000 a month for former player DeAndre Ayton. Miller has consistently denied paying players to attend Arizona.

    The NCAA charged the school with five Level I violations, according to a notice of allegations released last month. The program was hit with two alleged instances of academic misconduct, while Miller was charged for not demonstrating "that he promoted an atmosphere for compliance and monitored his staff."

    Bill Self just got a lifetime contract. Will Wade still employed at LSU. Weird how things get applied when they all are basically on tape paying players.

    Surprised they didn’t keep telling everyone to screw off. Unless he’s in legit, FBI trouble.

    I was wondering how USC made it into the tournament. I thought for sure something was going on there when the Mobley brothers father was the assistant coach. How did that happen:huh: Maybe they have something on someone that works in the NCAA.
