Sean Miller Addresses Pitt Head Coaching Job: ‘No Interest’

    Sean Miller addresses the Pitt head coaching job that's now vacant, stating he has "no interest" in it.

    March 22, 2016

    Pitt’s head coaching vacancy led to talk of Sean Miller being a candidate, but the Arizona coach shut that down quickly.

    Jamie Dixon’s departure from Pitt for his alma mater TCU has left the Panthers without a head coach for the first time since 2003.

    In the thick of the 2016 NCAA Tournament, plenty of names have been thrown around as potential replacements for Dixon. After all, it’s a job in the all-powerful ACC, which has the most teams remaining in the tournament (6). 

    One of those names was Sean Miller, whose Arizona Wildcats were just knocked out by the Miami Hurricanes — one of those ACC contenders. Miller played for Pitt in the late 80s and early 90s, so naturally his name has been attached to the vacancy.

    On Tuesday afternoon, he tweeted out a message on Tuesday, shooting down any ideas of him leaving Arizona for his alma mater.

    Miller was hired as the Wildcats head coach in 2009, replacing legendary head coach Lute Olsen. It’s never easy following a coach of Olsen’s caliber, but Miller has already put his stamp on the program.
