Arizona coach Sean Miller sounded less like a coach who ended his season on a two-game losing skid, and more like a coach whose tenure in Tucson was nearing an end on Saturday when he said goodbye to fans in a postgame sendoff following the Wlidcats 72-64 loss to Arizona State.
“There’s no place that is more magical than the McKale Center. There’s no fans in the world that are more loyal,” Miller said. “It has been an amazing honor to coach in the McKale Center the last 10 years. Thank you for everything.”

Miller sidestepped questions about his emotional postgame moment in front of the fans in his news conference afterwards, electing not to comment.

Miller has come under scrutiny by both the NCAA and the feds recently related to the college basketball corruption scandal, which could usher in his ouster.

Sounds to me like a man that knows he is done.
