View Full Version : The Arizona drama continues: Russ Pennell new interim head coach

10-24-2008, 10:45 AM
Russ Pennell was hired in April as Lute's new assistant. He worked under Rob Evans when he was at ASU, and was coaching at the Arizona Premier Basketball Academy prior to making the move to Tucson. He is Arizona's new interim head coach. A presser will take place this afternoon.

If this is true, there's no question that Livengood intends to engage in a nationwide search for a head coach. It is not clear right now if Dunlap has been given his walking papers.

Solomon Hill has now officially decommitted as well:


Also, 2009 recruit Solomon Hill decommitted in the wake of Olson's retirement. Crawford told the Daily Star that he and his son built a particularly close relationship with assistant coach Reggie Geary, and that Geary's uncertain future in 2009-10 became a deal breaker.
