We have some big news in the college basketball world.

According to Jeff Goodman, the Arizona Wildcats have parted ways with basketball coach Sean Miller after 12 season with the program.

Miller was caught up in the middle of the FBI investigation into college basketball and was charged with head coach responsibility for failure to promote atmosphere compliance.

Despite this charge, the administration at Arizona stuck with and supported Miller for the last four years.

Former Kentucky Wildcats guard Jemarl Baker transferred to Arizona after his one season in Lexington.

Back on March 25th, Baker announced that he would be transferring once again and leaving Arizona. Maybe Baker knew that the news about Miller being fired was coming and knew it was time to move on.

Miller was one of the coaches that I could not believe still had a job after all of the findings of the FBI. Now, four years later, Arizona has decided to move on from the Miller era.
