Arizona Wildcats head coach Sean Miller had a meeting Monday with his attorneys and administrators from the University of Arizona to discuss his future with the school, 247Sports' Evan Daniels and Josh Gershon reported Tuesday. 

Miller didn't coach Arizona in the team's 98-93 overtime loss to the Oregon Ducks last Saturday after ESPN's Mark Schlabach reported Miller had been recorded on an FBI wiretap allegedly discussing a $100,000 payment to guarantee freshman center Deandre Ayton would sign with the Wildcats.

Daniels, Gershon and Brian Snow, however, provided a different retelling of events in a report for 247Sports on Monday. They reported the FBI wiretaps focused on calls between June 19, 2017, and Sept. 25, 2017.

Ayton had already signed with Arizona well before then, putting pen to paper in November 2016. 

According to Daniels, Gershon and Snow, Ayton also didn't have a relationship with Christian Dawkins, the former employee of ASM Sports Group who was allegedly on the other end of the call where Miller was discussing the $100,000 payment.

Daniels and Gershon reported Tuesday it's unclear whether Arizona will allow Miller to continue coaching the Wildcats or fire him in the wake of the allegations.
