Sean Miller seems to have accepted his fate at Arizona

"He finds a way to make big shots", head coach Bobby Hurley said of Martin.

Miller might be on his way out, though an Arizona basketball insider revealed that the coach was on the road recruiting last week. "Thank you for everything".

With an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe rapidly advancing on the likes of Arizona's Sean Miller and a number other big-time basketball programs, the 10-year Wildcats head coach might think the writing is on the wall.

"Being able to come here and play for Coach Miller and these guys and these fans, I'm just really thankful", Luther said postgame.

"It has been an incredible honor to coach in McKale Center for the last 10 years".

The comment raised more than a few eyebrows in the college basketball world, as that sure doesn't sound like something a man would say if he knows he's coming back next season.

Miller's contract provides that even if he is fired with cause, the university would have to pay his base salary. However, the coach clearly has something on his mind with these comments and the possibilities for what that is do not inspire confidence for his tenure continuing at Arizona.

If this is indeed it for Miller, he'll end his Arizona career with a record of 384-134 not counting whatever happens this postseason.

He has guided the Wildcats to five Pac-12 regular-season championships, three Pac-12 Tournament titles and three Elite Eight appearances in the NCAA Tournament.

But it was his 10th season coaching the Wildcats. Arizona is now 8-10 in conference play and 17-14 overall.
