Re: UA interim coach Russ Pennell


Giving props to Pennell

He did hold the team together, and did a pretty good job overall. I still am not a fan of him being permanent head coach. We need a high-profile guy to keep the recruits coming and the NCAA bids rolling in.


Thank you to Pennell and the rest of the UA coaching staff for a job well done. Pennell will get what he deserves for his efforts – a job at a Division I college or university where he will have the chance to prove himself with his own recruits.


I have no doubt that Arizona is where it is today because of Russ Pennell. He definitely deserves more than a farewell when this year’s team reaches the end of the “yellow brick road.”

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
