Arizona AD Vows To Keep Sean Miller, Prevent Him From Taking Maryland Basketball Job

Sean Miller is still considered the leading candidate to take the Maryland basketball job in the wake of Gary Williams' retirement, but it is by no means a done deal yet. Miller is supposed to meet with Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson in Las Vegas, and it appears the ball is in his court. Meanwhile, Arizona athletic director Greg Byrne is vowing to do everything possible to keep Miller in Tucson.

Byrne sent out a series of messages on his Twitter account in an attempt to reassure Arizona fans.

Wildcat Faithful, please know that we have been & continue to work to keep Sean Miller as our coach. During our ongoing conversations Sean is very aware & has been very aware, that we want him to be our coach. We will continue to do everything in our power to ensure that happens. I hope you have seen our department make a real effort to be transparent & honest. As we are able, we will continue to communicate.

Miller has been in Tucson for two years after six seasons in Xavier.
