Peters, who graduated from Ohio State and played for Buckeyes under Thad Matta, spent four years under Miller at Arizona. He was a graduate manager the first two years and was promoted to assistant director of basketball operations in August 2012.
He also served as the co-director of the Sean Miller Basketball Camps.
Not only is Danny Peters just a good hire for Arizona but he knows the deal when it comes to coaching in Tucson and what Sean Miller expects … should make for an easy transition

Peters is the son of the late Dan Peters, the former head coach at Youngstown State and St. Joseph’s (Ind.) College.
