Lute Olsen Retiring

By  | 

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Arizona coach Lute Olson has retired after 24 years with the Wildcats.
Athletic director Jim Livengood confirmed Olson's decision after
hours of news reports speculating about the 74-year-old Hall of
Famer's future.
ESPN's Dick Vitale first reported the story, saying Olson would
be replaced by assistant coach Mike Dunlap, a former Denver Nuggets
assistant and Metro State coach who joined the program in May.
Olson missed all of last season after taking a personal leave of
absence for what he later termed "a medical condition that was not
life-threatening."
When Olson returned from his leave in April, he said he planned
to coach for the remainder of his contract, which runs through
2011.
