Boy, I hope the committee is as quick as we are on this stuff.
(Just kidding, Rick.)
So…you remember the whole bit about the third-party contact method? The usage of intermediaries to get messages from school to perspective coach?
Well, Xavier’s Sean Miller has been informed, according to a source, through the back channels that Indiana will find a way to pay the $2 million buyout in his contract if he’s interested in becoming Kelvin Sampson’s replacement.
But, as of this afternoon, Miller had not officialy been approached by anyone from IU.
Which makes sense, since Tony Bennett apparently only just recently gave the answer the committee didn’t want to hear.
Publicly, Miller has already stated that he wants to stay at Xavier, where’s he’s been the coach since Thad Matta left for Ohio State.
“â€œI will be at Xavier,â€ Miller said after his team lost to UCLA Saturday. â€œIâ€™m looking forward to coaching at Xavier and continuing on with what weâ€™ve done for years behind me and what weâ€™ve done this year.â€
More on this story as we get it.
