    Sean Miller accepted the job as head coach of the Arizona Wildcats on Monday, one day after turning the position down, a source close to the negotiations told Yahoo! Sports.

    Miller told Arizona he would remain at Xavier late last night, then asked for a chance to sleep on the decision. After going back and forth during the morning, a source said, he informed XU athletic director Mike Bobinski of his decision at noon ET.

    Miller could not immediately be reached for comment. A message left for Xavier officials has not been immediately returned.

    Miller led Xavier to two Elite Eights and a Sweet 16 over five seasons. His overall record 120-47. He had met with UA officials Sunday in Santa Fe, N.M. and flown back to Cincinnati to make his final decision.


    Miller and Bobinski met at the coach’s home Monday morning when, according to a source, Miller informed Bobinski he was taking the UA job. Miller has also informed UA athletic director Jim Livengood, who was under immense pressure to hire a replacement for Hall of Famer Lute Olson.

    Miller’s deal is for seven years, $18 million, which includes a $1 million signing bonus, according to the source.

    Arizona has been to 25 consecutive NCAA tournaments, the best active streak in college basketball and second all time to a 27-year North Carolina run.

    Awesome news.

    Sorry Xavier fans - that's a no brainer decision. UA still has one of the top jobs in the nation with resources available that is only matched at a few other schools.

    As a UA Alum, this is exciting news.

    Apparently it wasn't.

    I know it's early, but any thoughts on who the replacement will be? As a UD fan, I'm not upset that X may be weaker w/o him, but it's not really good for the A10 either.

    Nope. Buzz Peterson or Kevin O'Neill.

    I think Xavier will probably go after Bob Huggins.[/troll]

    So would Tom Crean. Running for governor was exhausting.

    As a Cats fan, I'm happy Miller is going to Arizona. I was hoping Livengood would go for Pastner if Miller declined, but I'd rather have Miller than Floyd....any day.

    Sucks though for Xavier.

    He is THE MAN in Indiana, that's for sure. Well, except in West Lafayette and South Bend of course.
