Arizona hires assistant coach Justin Gainey from Santa Clara. He may not be the big name everyone was hoping for, but coach Miller was very careful in his search for his last assistant coaching spot. Makes sense that Miller is again going with someone who he has a history with as he has to be sure that he's hiring an assistant who he can trust 100%.

Gainey spent the last two seasons at Santa Clara under Herb Sendek, his coach when he played at North Carolina State from 1997-2000, and that staff included Miller. Gainey has also worked at Appalachian State and Marquette, coaching alongside current Arizona assistant Mark Phelps at Marquette.

There are not many elite options out there, but I enjoyed the luxury of having a true big man coaching our bigs.
With that being said, with Miller trying to go to a more guard-oriented offense, having multiple coaches that played DI basketball is going to help us a lot.
Good job by Coach Miller, and welcome to the family that is Arizona Coach Gainey..
