Jeremiah Brent Brings Worldly Flair to This Manhattan Apartment

  Jeremiah Brent Brings Worldly Flair to This Manhattan Apartment The designer melds old and new to refresh a family home on the Upper East SideLocated in a 1920s building on the city’s Upper East Side, the 2,600-square-foot flat is “so beautiful and grand and has such great soul,” Brent observes, adding that he had been recommended for the job by the owners’ nephew, who happens to be one of Brent’s clients. Of the uncle and aunt who have now become close Brent friends: “He is practical and logistical but has this funny art eye that gravitates to bold, emotional pieces. She’s as chic as it gets, seriously smart, and likes things that are refined, soft, and luxurious.

In a move that somehow manages to be both predictable and surprising, the University of Arizona “parted ways” with men’s basketball coach Sean Miller today.

It’s predictable given the years of NCAA and other investigations, not to mention sliding performance on the court. It’s surprising given the timing; Arizona essentially waited out the entire coaching carousel, with jobs at schools like Indiana, Texas, and Oklahoma vacated and filled in the meantime.

Miller had been at Arizona for twelve years, making three Elite Eight appearances, with his last one coming in 2015. Miller never had a losing record, and only once (2018-19) did he have a losing record in Pac-12 play.

But the recruiting scandal that led to an FBI investigation was heavily focused on his program, with Arizona assistant Book Richardson arrested and eventually sentenced to prison time related to bribery and corruption.

Miller managed to avoid that, somehow, for years, maintaining his job and coaching the Wildcats through this season. Arizona self-imposed a postseason ban, though it wasn’t likely to matter this year anyway, and now Miller is out.

8 Amazing California Road Trips That Take You From Big Sur to the Sierras

  8 Amazing California Road Trips That Take You From Big Sur to the Sierras Whether you're seeking beaches or mountains, deserts or small towns, these California road trips will deliver.All it takes is a solid playlist, some road-trip friendly snacks, and a little planning to get out of your routine and on the road. To get you started, we've outlined some of California's best road trips — from multiday to multiweek adventures that criss-cross practically every part of the state (and kick off in major, easy-to-access cities).

Waiting until now means Arizona may have missed out on some of the top names on the market, but it’s possible they wouldn’t have been in the running for them anyway. It’s clearly a top job in a vacuum, but with multiple level 1 NCAA violations hanging over the program (the actual penalties have yet to be levied) the uncertainty may have made it a tough jump for some.

Now, at least, they have much less competition; if a coach somewhere wants to make a move and/or wants to coach at Arizona, it’s pretty clear what the options are. That should probably work in the school’s favor, although they might have to be pretty up front with candidates about their impending sanctions. That they kept Miller on for years in the face of mounting evidence might not play well for them, meaningless postseason ban or not.

As for Miller, he’ll probably land somewhere else pretty quickly. It’s been a tough offseason for that coaching family, after his brother Archie was fired at Indiana (for strictly on-court issues.) Where and when Miller gets another position again likely depends on the eventual penalties; if he gets a show-cause, for example, he might have to take the Kelvin Sampson route as an NBA assistant for a few years.

The other lesson: had Miller kept winning at a very high level, he’d probably still have a job. Not an original lesson in the world of college sports, but an important one to note all the same.
