Sean Miller's contract as head coach of the Arizona Wildcats men's basketball team has been extended through the 2016-2017 season.

Miller, who won the 2011 Pac-12 Coach of the Year award, has provided plenty of excitement for the 2012-2013 season, bringing in one of the nation's top recruiting classes for a team that is expected to be in the preseason top-25.
