The Arizona Wildcats announced Monday that men's basketball coach Sean Miller's Twitter account will be deactivated, just four days after the Wildcats were bounced from the NCAA Tournament in a surprising upset loss.
FYI - after today, Coach Miller will not have an active twitter account. #BearDown https://t.co/GgIXyP8aLI

The Wildcats were among the favorites to advance to the this year's Final Four -- a place Arizona hasn't been for 16 years. But UA's attempted run to Glendale ended with a 73-71 loss to No. 11 seed Xavier in the Sweet 16 on Thursday in San Jose.
Arizona didn't specify the reason for the deactivation of Miller's account. The eighth-year UA head coach was subject to a number of negative tweets following Arizona's tournament exit.
On a side note: Sean Miller's brother Archie, who was just named head coach at Indiana, still has an active account.
