The Arizona Wildcats’ season is winding down, and the coaching search buzz is heating up.
WildcatSportsReport.com, one of our partners in the TucsonCitizen.com Sports Network, posted two premium stories on its site Friday night — one regarding the pursuit of former Oregon coach Mike Bellotti and the other stating that Boise State coach Chris Petersen is not out of the picture.
In the case of Bellotti — who is believed to want to coach again after stepping down as the Ducks head coach in the spring of 2009 to become the school’s athletic director — things could move very quickly.
Bellotti, an analyst for ESPN since the start of last season, is helping to call Wisconsin’s game at Illinois on Saturday morning. If athletic director Greg Byrne moves on Bellotti, then an announcement could come quickly, within 48 hours of Saturday night’s game at Arizona State.
