Sean Miller Adds Two Xavier Assistants to His Arizona Staff

Alan Rubenstein@@uarubyAnalyst IIIApril 11, 2009

Sean Miller has not wasted any time in getting his staff together at Arizona. Emmanuel "Book" Richardson and James Whitford will move west to join Miller on his Arizona staff; both men served as part of Miller's Staff at Xavier.

Richardson was on Miller's Xavier staff for the last two seasons; his other Division I experience includes a stint at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY. Whitford comes to Tucson after serving under Miller for four years at Xavier.

Whitford was an assistant for 11 years at Miami (OH) before joining Miller's staff in Cincinnati. He knows Miller from his days as the student manager at Wisconsin in the mid-'90s. Miller was an assistant coach at UW.

There is still one position open. Current UA Assistant, and former Wildcat player, Reggie Geary is holding out hope to stay on the staff.

Miller has not indicated which way he is leaning in hiring the third assistant, but he did mention during his press conference that he would like to have someone with West coast ties on his staff.
