Sean Miller was linked to the Pittsburgh's men's basketball opening today. We have an update on what's going on.

Arizona's men's basketball coach reportedly met with Pitt athletic director Heather Lyke and discussed the head coaching position, according to a report by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Miller had interest, according to the report.

Miller is a Pennsylvania native and has constantly been linked to the program.

However, he claims he has no interest in the position. He says he won't be Pitt's next head coach.

"I am not a candidate for the University of Pittsburgh men's basketball head coaching vacancy," Miller said in a statement. "I wish them well in their search for a new coach."

Here's the full tweet:

Pittsburgh has another big name on its wish list, according to reports.

Rhode Island head coach Danny Hurley is reportedly the Panthers' top target. UConn is reportedly going after him, too.

Stay tuned.
