Arizona basketball: Sean Miller's contract extended, NBA Draft updates

USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Board of Regents approved a contract extension for Arizona basketball coach Sean Miller.

Sean Miller's contract extension through the 2017-18 season was approved by the Arizona Board of Regents, according to the Arizona Daily Star's Bruce Pascoe. The deal certainly bodes well for Arizona's recruiting, and the fact that Miller supposedly avoided any negotiating by offering his deal to level out in the final years means he views his position in Tucson as a longterm deal.

Recruiting-wise, the stability gives Miller a leg up on the competition. More importantly, it means Miller really is happy with the situation in the desert and his spurning of Maryland a few years back was genuine in nature.

"When coach Miller and I sat down for our annual end-of-the-year discussion, he was very appreciative of president (Ann Weaver) Hart and my willingness to seek an extension of his contract back to five years," Byrne told the Daily Star via text message. "He requested during that discussion to keep his fifth year salary at the same level as year four."

Pascoe also added on Twitter that the monetary value of the 2017-18 season might not matter much anyway.

APR scores not hurt by transfers

Miller has had a number of transfers for an array of reasons during his tenure. Nonetheless, Pascoe notes that none of the more questionable ones have hurt the Wildcats' APR score.
