Wildcats replace K.O.
Just one day after Kevin O'Neil was reassigned within the athletic department it appears like Lute Olson has chosen his replacement. Several media outlets in Tucson and Phoenix are reporting that it's Russ Pennell-who was an assistant coach under Rob Evans at Arizona State. Evans is no longer with ASU.
He spent the past season working on The Sun Devils Radio Network. An official announcement can not be made until the job has been posted on the universities website for two week. As of Thursday night it had not yet been posted.
This will be the third assient coach in as many years. Kevin O'Neil was hired one year ago to replace Jim Rosborough.
