Miller, who was reportedly caught on an Federal Bureau of Investigation wiretap discussing giving a recruit $100,000, could lose his job if the report is true but terminating his contract could cost the University of Arizona a whole lot of money.

Former Huskies coach Lorenzo Romar, who joined Miller's staff as an associate head coach after being fired at UW, will step into the head role for Saturday's game at Oregon.

ESPN says a source familiar with the government's evidence told them that Miller discussed paying $100,000 to make sure star freshman Ayton signed with the Wildcats.

Arizona's administration came out in strong support for Miller after the scandal broke back in September with both athletic director Dave Heeke and president Robert C. Robbins both giving the program and Miller their full backing. The 7-foot-1, 252-pounder is averaging 19.6 points, 10.9 rebounds, and 1.9 blocks per game, and is leading the Wildcats to a 22-6 record. When he chose the Wildcats, his 247 Sports Crystal Ball predicted overwhelmingly for Kansas. The FBI alleges Richardson took $20,000 in bribes from an undercover agent and help facilitate, illegally, recruitments of coveted, high-profile prospects.

Miller had previously denied any knowledge of Richardson's alleged bribery to bring players to the team. Richardson was officially fired by Arizona on January 11.
