New Arizona president on Sean Miller to Ohio State speculation: 'Over my dead body'

Only a few days on the job, the new University of Arizona President Dr. Robert Robbins found himself confronting speculation that Ohio State may try to lure away the university's head basketball coach Sean Miller.

The Ohio State University is great university, but they are not going to get Coach Miller," Robbins said during a wide-ranging interview with The Arizona Republic and azcentral.com. "They will have to come over me to get him, as the saying goes, over my dead body."

Robbins said the 48-year-old Miller is a "tremendous, tremendous individual who has had great success on the court. I know hes disappointed he couldnt bring a national championship to the state, given that the Final Four was here."

Speculation on Twitter was rampant on Monday that Ohio State may try to go after Miller after school officials announced that mens basketball coach Thad Matta will not return to the Buckeyes for the 2017-18 season.

The unexpected announcement means an unusually late high-profile coaching search.

Miller is considered one of the top college basketball coaches, and the 2017-18 Wildcats may be the preseason No. 1 team.
