Sean Miller article

In case anyone missed it, this was an article I happened upon yesterday that mentions, in somewhat uncomplimentary fashion, Kevin Anderson’s aborted pursuit of Sean Miller.

Without the botched hiring attempt of Sean Miller, who knows where Arizona basketball might be today. It’d likely be without Miller, who probably would’ve accepted the vacancy at Maryland, and also without all of the fortunes he’s amassed since turning down the job.

We’ll never know the exact details of what happened in Las Vegas that ultimately turned Miller off from the Maryland job, but Arizona fans should say their thanks every day for the ineptitude of Anderson.

Given the sequencing of events leading up to last year’s firing, particularly the sudden change of course, it seems evident to me that Ralph Friegden and Kevin Anderson had some sort of interpersonal meltdown that made it impossible for them to continue working together.

When Anderson flew to Las Vegas last summer in the days immediately following Gary Williams retirement, it was to hire, not interview, Sean Miller; Then things suddenly and dramatically changed, and to paraphrase, Anderson said with no further elaboration that it became immediately clear Miller was not a fit.

 Again, this to me is evidence of a personality conflict. I’m just wondering if it’s coincidence or a developing pattern.
