Multiple reports including this one from SB Nation http://arizona.sbnation.com/2011/5/7/2159051/sean-miller-leaving-arizona-for-maryland-reports-say are reporting that Sean Miller will accept an offer to become Marylands new coach. In just 2 seasons at Arizona Miller brought the wildcats back to prominence and back to recognition among the elite in college basketball.This is somewhat of a suprising move considering what Miller had coming back mixed with a top 10 recruiting class Arizona was set to have a big year next year in a weak Pac 12 but reports also indicate that his wife had allergies that did not agree with the being in the desert (Tucson) and wanted to move back east. And for all of us that are Married we all know if momma aint happy nobody's happy.
Now you might ask.....Why would it be good news for Louisville? Well It seems Rick is determined to add a PG to the 2011 class and the two best options may become available if Miller does indeed accept the job as expected.. Remember the names Josiah Turner and Nick Johnson? They were two guards that were high on Louisville before committing to Arizona. Both are 5 star guys and Johnson is actually listed as a SG but is a natural fit at the point. It also cant hurt that we now have Wyking on staff being that both of these kids are from the west coast and he has such strong ties out there.
