Arizona Wildcats coach Mike Stoops says there are no hard feelings over the departure of secondary coach Duane Akina, and that there weren’t any broken promises on his end.
Akina departed Monday to return to Texas, which he had left in mid-January to return to Arizona, where he coached for 14 years under Dick Tomey. Akina cited family considerations.
“You gotta do what you got to do when it comes to what’s best for you and your family,” Stoops said. “I have no hard feelings. I understand.”
“Hopefully, I got him a raise.”
