Sean Miller, Arizona's head coach for 12 seasons before the school fired him last April, is returning to the Xavier Musketeers, the team he coached from 2001 to 2004 as an assistant and 2004 to 2009 as head coach.

The Enquirer's Adam Baum confirmed the news, adding that Miller was Xavier's top choice once it decided to part ways with Travis Steele on Wednesday.
