1 City appears rudderless after council fires city manager: On Tuesday, Tucson City Manager Mike Hein sat down with his seven bosses on the City Council for his annual performance evaluation. When he walked out a half-hour later, a council vote quickly made him the ex-city manager. Deputy Mike Letcher will be in charge until a permanent replacement is found.

2 Xavier coach Miller “follows heart” to Arizona: Sean Miller said would follow his heart and leave Xavier University in Cincinnati to become the head basketball coach at the University of Arizona. Once at UA, Miller immediately saluted former coach Lute Olson, who built a program Miller said he is proud to lead.

3 Anthony Gimino column: UA strikes gold in hunt for hoops coach: After a coaching search that seemed up, then down, then meandering, sports columnist Gimino wrote, “The forecast is for clear skies and lots of sun. Sean Miller has saved the day and chased away the clouds.”

4 Colbert says: “No good half” of Tucson: Funnyman Stephen Colbert dubs U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords “Miss Pink Sweater Set” because she balked at naming part of the space station after him. Colbert had unkind words for Tucson, too.

5 Jason Terry supports Miller, still feels Pastner was better choice: Former University of Arizona star and current Dallas Mavericks player Jason Terry is 100 percent behind Sean Miller as the Wildcats’ new coach. But he still thinks former teammate and former UA assistant coach Josh Pastner might have been a better choice. Pastner instead became the new head coach at Memphis.

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
