ESPN's Dick Vitale is reporting Lute Olson is stepping down as head coach. Reports on ESPN is that Mike Dunlap will taker over for the rest of the season. Arizona started practice a week ago tomorrow.
Olson steeped down for the season about this time last year and Kevin O'Neil acted as head coach. Around Christmas O'Neil was named the next Arizona coach whenever Olson decides to retire. Yet a falling out between Olson and O'Neil resulted in O'Neil leaving to work with the Memphis Grizzlies of the NBA. Presumably O'Neil will no longer be the next head coach.
It must be noted that the U of A says the story is untrue and Olson is still the head coach. Olson has yet to say anything.
