What does it all mean for UA coach Sean Miller?
By Doug Haller | azcentral sports
Across the country, this usually is a time of excitement in college basketball. Instead, as practice begins Friday, recent events have produced a cloud that shows no signs of moving anytime soon.
A federal probe has led to the arrests of four assistant coaches, including Arizona’s Emanuel “Book” Richardson. On paper, the Wildcats look like a national-title contender, but today all anyone wants to know is whether coach Sean Miller will keep his job.
Was this a case of a rogue assistant? Or was Richardson simply operating with a do-whatever’s-necessary approach from Miller, one of the best coaches in the sport? Opinions vary. No one knows for sure how far this will go or how the sport will look when games tip in November.
