TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

University of Arizona Head Basketball Coach Sean Miller is headed for the "final four" in a charity challenge against other college coaches.

Coach Miller won at least $10,000 for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern Arizona by ranking among the top five coaches in votes in the most recent round of the Infiniti Coaches' Charity Challenge, officials said.

Coaches from across the country choose their favorite charity and can raise money for the organization through votes.

Starting today, the public can support their favorite coach or charity in the final round by voting at www.VoteCoachMiller.com through 9:59 a.m. on March 2. The coach with the most votes will win $100,000 for his charity and the final four will win $15,000 per coach.

RMHC officials said the local house in Tucson has supported at least 9,000 families since it opened in 1981. It is self-described as a "home away from home" for families traveling with their children who have serious illnesses or injuries.
