Former Xavier men's basketball coach Sean Miller has reached an agreement to return as Xavier's head coach on Saturday, March 19, 2022.

Sean Miller will return to Xavier University as head coach of men’s basketball, The Enquirer confirmed on Saturday. The news was first reported by Pete Thamel and Jeff Borzello.

Miller, 53, was also in talks with South Carolina.

“Xavier is thrilled to welcome Sean Miller and his family to Victory Parkway,” Xavier’s athletic director Greg Christopher said in a statement. “Sean is an elite college basketball coach and a proven winner who understands the expectations, traditions and values ​​of Xavier and the Big East Conference.
