Sean Miller receives shirt endorsement after sweating during the NCAA Tournament

Apparently, Miller is a hot commodity in the endorsement market

Sean Miller became an internet sensation during the Arizona Wildcats' first round loss to the Wichita State Shockers in the NCAA Tournament. No, it wasn't because of a tirade towards the refs or his players, it was because he completely sweat through his shirt.

As embarrassing as it may seem, Miller has personally benefitted from it. He received boxes of shirts in the mail from Tommy John's CEO (apparently for free!), and Miller joked that he's now a major player in the endorsement market.

Miller now has "five" different types of shirts, so the whole sweaty shirt thing should soon be a thing of the past.

Plus, there's also another silver lining of the attention he received.

"If anything, I think more people talked about me and less about our team and that may be a good thing," Miller said.

But don't worry, Arizona fans -- while Miller is a superstar in the endorsement market, he won't be quitting his day-job in order to pursue it full-time.
