Arizona basketball: Sean Miller releases statement, won't be leaving the Wildcats for Pittsburgh

Miller is staying at Arizona as expected

It was always a longshot that Arizona Wildcats' head coach Sean Miller would leave the program to "go home" to Pittsburgh to coach his alma mater.

But, an errant report by Rich Walsh of CBS Pittsburgh stirred things up when it was said Pitt was "putting the full court press on Miller." Walsh even tweeted that Miller was in Pittsburgh, but that wasn't true at all.

Shortly after the report came out, Miller took matters into his own hands to dispel it. He released this statement, confirming that he's staying at Arizona.

Now that this has been addressed, it's time for Miller and the coaching staff to hit the recruiting trail and continue to build on what is already a strong 2016 recruiting class.

"It's up to us now to build on this and take the next step and come back and be even better a year from now," Miller said after the season-ending loss to Wichita State.
