Sean Miller To Be Named New Maryland Basketball Coach, According To Report

UPDATE: It is not a done deal yet.

It looks like Maryland basketball has already found its next head coach after Gary Williams retired on Thursday. Sean Miller, the former coach at the University of Arizona, will be named Maryland's new head coach on Monday, according to a report by ESPN 980

According to sources; Sean Miller will be named new men's basketball coach at the University of Maryland on Monday    

The Terps had been "zeroing in" on Miller ever since Williams announced his retirement. Athletic Director Kevin Anderson reportedly met with Miller in Las Vegas, and now, it looks like Miller has indeed accepted the job. 

Miller has spent the last two years at Arizona. Last season, he led the Wildcats to the Pac-10 regular-season championship and to the Elite 8 in the 2011 NCAA Tournament. Along the way, they beat Duke and Texas, two powerhouse programs. Miller had previously been at Xavier for six seasons, where he led the Musketeers to five straight NCAA Tournament berths, including an Elite 8 in 2008.
