Arizona President: Ohio State Will Hire Sean Miller "Over My Dead Body"

It doesn't look like Ohio State will be poaching Sean Miller from Arizona.

Miller, who has been with the Wildcats since 2009, was mentioned as a potential replacement for Thad Matta at OSU, but University of Arizona president Dr. Robert Robbins isn't having it.

Robbins told The Arizona Republicthat the Buckeyes will hire Miller "over my dead body."

Here is the full quote.

“The Ohio State University is great university, but they are not going to get Coach Miller," Robbins said during a wide-ranging interview with The Arizona Republic and azcentral.com. "They will have to come over me to get him, as the saying goes, over my dead body."

This makes perfect sense. Arizona has invested a lot in Miller, and while he hasn't gotten the program to a Final Four, his tenure has been highly successful.

Additionally, the Wildcats have the No. 3 recruiting class in the country coming in. There's a reason why we put U of A as the fifth-best job in college basketball in our rankings yesterday.
