Sean Miller, Head Coach, Xavier University Basketball

Join us this Thursday, July 18, 2024, for a LUNCH (12:00-1:30pm) meeting at The Transept (1205 Elm St, 45202), with Sean Miller, Sedler Family Men’s Basketball Head Coach, Xavier University.

Sean Miller, the Sedler Family Men’s Basketball Head Coach, returned to Xavier in 2022 after 12 seasons (2009-21) as the head coach at Arizona. His first season back, he led Xavier to one of the top five winningest seasons in school history at 27-10, tied the school record for BIG EAST wins in a season at 15-5 and led the Musketeers back to the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16.

Miller, who earned a spot on the 2023 Werner Ladder Naismith Men’s College Coach of the Year Late Season Watch List, owns a 465-184 (.716) on-court record in 19 seasons as a head coach. In his first 19 years as a head coach, including six at Xavier (2004-09 and the 2022-24 seasons), Miller has had eight Regular Season Conference Championships, four Conference Tournament Championships and 12 NCAA Tournament appearances, including four Elite Eights and eight Sweet 16s. 

Miller holds a 163-75 (.685) mark in seven seasons, leading Xavier. His 163 wins at XU rank him third on Xavier’s all-time wins list. He passed the late Skip Prosser (148 wins in seven seasons from 1994-01) with the Jacksonville win on Nov. 10. Pete Gillen (202 wins in nine seasons from 1985-94) is in second place. 

Miller took Xavier to at least the Sweet 16 in three straight seasons as the Xavier head coach (2023 Sweet 16, 2009 Sweet 16 and 2008 Elite Eight). Miller has now made the NCAA Tournament five times as the XU head coach.

In 2023, Miller coached in his 12th NCAA Tournament as a head coach, including his fifth at Xavier. He served as a head coach in his eighth Sweet 16, including his third at Xavier. He reached five Sweet 16s (three that advanced to Elite Eights) in 12 seasons at Arizona. Miller has a 21-12 on-court record as a head coach in NCAA Tournament play, including 13-7 at Arizona and 8-5 at XU.
