Sean Miller To Be Next Maryland Basketball Coach, According To Report

Gary Williams announced his retirement as Maryland's basketball coach on Friday, and the school is apparently wasting no time in finding his successor. Washington, D.C.-area radio station ESPN 980 reports that Arizona coach Sean Miller will be the Terrapins' next coach.

According to sources; Sean Miller will be named new men's basketball coach at the University of Maryland on Monday

Miller, age 42, has been a head coach since 2004. He spent his first five seasons with Xavier, where he led the Musketeers to two Sweet Sixteen appearances and one Elite Eight berth. Miller was then hired by Arizona, where he turned around a struggling Wildcats program and reached the 2011 Elite Eight in only his second season.

Miller would certainly have some big shoes to fill, as Williams' 22-year career at Maryland included a catalog of NCAA tournament wins and a national championship. But Miller's resume, while relatively short, is an impressive one.
