UPDATE: UA basketball coach Sean Miller maintains his innocence

Posted: Updated:

Embattled University of Arizona basketball coach Sean Miller will talk with media Thursday.

Miller is expected to discuss his future at the university. The Board of Regents announced that they would discuss his fate at a 2 p.m. meeting Thursday.

Miller has been under fire since ESPN reported that said the FBI reportedly intercepted telephone conversations in which he discussed paying $100,000 to ensure star freshman Deandre Ayton would sign with the Wildcats.

The tapes allegedly have Miller talking with Christian Dawkins, a figure in the FBI's investigation into college basketball corruption.

Sources say Dawkins asked Miller if he should work with assistant coach Emanuel "Book" Richardson to finalize this agreement. But Miller is said to have told Dawkins he should deal directly with him when it came to money.
