CINCINNATI (AP) -Xavier coach Sean Miller is headed to Arizona.
A person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press that Miller accepted the job Monday following days of uncertainty. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because Arizona hadn't announced the move. Musketeer players were being informed of the news.
Miller met with Xavier athletic director Mike Bobinski and informed the school he was leaving after five years.
Miller led the Musketeers to the Elite Eight last year and received a contract extension through the 2017-18 season. Xavier reached the round of 16 again this season.
Miller wasn't Arizona's first choice to succeed Hall of Fame coach Lute Olson. Tim Floyd rejected an offer to stay at Southern California.
