The Xavier Musketeers extended the contact of the men's basketball head coach Sean Miller, adding 10 years to existing contract which will now extend through the 2018 season. Miller led Xavier to an Elite Eight appearance in 2008 and 93-39 mark in his four years at the helm for the Muskies.
Here's the release from the school:
Xavier University Associate Vice President and Athletic Director Mike Bobinski announced today that the University and head men’s basketball coach Sean Miller have agreed to an extended contract that will run through the 2017-18 season. The 39-year-old Miller, who had a six-year contract when he was hired on July 8, 2004, is receiving his third contract extension and the longest ever given to a Xavier University head coach.
The new deal is a 10-year agreement beginning in the 2008-09 season and running through the 2017-18 season. “This agreement represents an unprecedented commitment by Xavier University to head coach Sean Miller,” said Bobinski. “It reflects our strong belief in Sean’s leadership of our basketball program and further solidifies our mutual desire to achieve success at the highest level of Division I basketball.”
“I would like to thank (Xavier University President) Fr. Michael Graham and Mike Bobinski for their incredible support of our basketball program and continued belief in me as the head coach,” Miller said in a statement.
“Today’s commitment reinforces my own beliefs and excitement about our future together. With great anticipation I look forward to continuing to build our program and the challenges that accompany doing so.”
