Here He Comes

You might have heard the news coming out of Arizona; they're in need of a coach.

After a season-long leave of absence, Lute Olson is finally calling it quits, but there's a catch. Olson's one-time successor, Kevin O'Neill, is not in the running for the position seeing as he moved on to the NBA's Memphis Grizzlies.

Mike Dunlap seems to be the
coach of the moment, but I think Arizona will not be too enamoured with Dunlap's Division II pedigree, and will continue their "nationwide search" throughout the season.

Funny, a well-connected coach in the know recently remarked he'd like to
get back onto the sidelines - preferably not in the Big Ten or 12.

Who was that coach? You guessed it...Frank Stallone...Bob Knight.

This will be interesting, to say the least.

I thought about this, too, but I don't think Arizona will touch him. Quite honestly, I think most major, successful programs feel he's radioactive and don't want to get intertwined with the crazy, angry old man.
