Lawyers of both Arizona head coach Sean Miller and the University of Arizona spent Tuesday in deep negotiations regarding Miller's future with the school, sources told 247Sports. By the end of Tuesday, the sides had yet to reach an amicable agreement regarding options for Miller to return to the sideline. Miller missed practice yet again on Tuesday. Negotiations have continued into Wednesday, and as of this report he's not expected to be at practice today, sources told 247Sports. Miller has been under scrutiny since a twice-corrected ESPN report on Friday alleging that that FBI wiretaps intercepted calls between Sean Miller and former ASM sports associate Christian Dawkins, "in which Miller discussed paying $100,000 to ensure star freshman DeAndre Ayton signed with the Wildcats." Despite the potential holes in ESPN's story, Miller has remained away from the team since Friday's report. He didn't coach in Arizona's 98-93 overtime loss to Oregon on Saturday. After the game, he released a statement before the game, saying, "I am confident I will be vindicated."
