TUCSON, Ariz — Sean Miller cleared up some confusion about a speech he made to fans over the weekend during a press conference Monday.

Following a loss to Arizona State on Saturday, Miller addressed McKale Center by thanking Arizona's loyal fan base.

"There's no place that's more magical than McKale Center. There's no fans in the world that are more loyal. And it has been an amazing honor to coach in McKale Center for the last 10 years. Thank you for everything," Miller said.

Following this speech, many outlets began to speculate on Miller's future with the University of Arizona. On Monday, Miller provided some clarification.

"It certainly wasn't a goodbye speech," Miller said. "I meant what I said in terms of I can’t imagine a fan base treating a coach any better than this fan base has treated our staff and me."

Arizona ended the regular season with a 17-14 record. The team is scheduled play USC on Wednesday at Noon for the first game of the Pac 12 Tournament.
