Arizona's Sean Miller Turns Down Maryland, Will Stay at Arizona

Despite numerous reports indicating the contrary, the unexpected has happened: Arizona's Sean Miller has turned down Maryland will remain head coach at Arizona. The news comes from Greg Byrne, who is Arizona's AD. That's a pretty solid source, I'd say.

And yes, we officially just got Painter'd.

It looks like this might've been a leverage ploy all along. I don't know if I buy that, though; there was too much smoke for this to just be for leverage. That said, maybe he took his offer back to Byrne, who matched it and then some. Regardless, if this is true, he ended up using Maryland in the long run.

This is a pretty huge debacle for the Terps. Miller became the obvious top candidate and it appeared he was in the bag. This is, quite literally, the football search all over again. Only this time Anderson was turned down by the man he wanted.
