Re: UA hoops coaching search


Offering Floyd job was just plain stupid

• Throwing Floyd the job was like a “panic” move on his part since every damn college was hiring this week! Come on Livengood.


I don’t get it . . . 25 years ago Arizona was in the dumps, a horrible b-ball school and we got a Final Four coach in Lute Olson . . . so now that we are a storied program, why are we not at least going for the same caliber?


You hire a coach who will be with you for 25-30 years. This means a Miller, a Drew or a Pastner, and Josh is the best choice. All the top coaches out there want Josh to work for them. That should tell UA all it needs to know.

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
