On Monday it was reported that Arizona head basketball coach Sean Miller was subpoenaed to testify in the upcoming federal basketball trial.
Preliminary notifications have been sent out to representatives of both Arizona basketball coach Sean Miller and LSU basketball coach Will Wade that they will be subpoenaed for the April 22 federal basketball corruption trial, multiple sources told Yahoo Sports. These notifications are essentially a courtesy to avoid a public spectacle for the coaches, like getting served in the middle of a game or a practice.
The impending subpoenas mark a potentially dynamic development in the college basketball corruption case. It creates the potential of two high-profile head coaches testifying in federal court about the granular detail of the recruiting underworld – something that never manifested in the initial federal trial last fall…
Miller was asked about the report on Tuesday and quickly shut the reporter down by telling him to go back to Phoenix.
One day after reports surfaced that Arizona Men's Basketball Coach Sean Miller will be subpoenaed for a federal trial related to college basketball, I tried to ask him about it 2x today. At one point he told me "No comment. You can drive back to Phoenix." @abc15 @YahooSports pic.twitter.com/gdezPSae89

There’s no better way to clear your name like denying all accusations and shutting down any questions about it.
If you never acknowledge it ever existed then it will just go away, right?
