After spending two years in Tucson, Damon Stoudamire is headed back to the University of Memphis to be an assistant.
Stoudamire returned to Tucson after two years as an assistant coach at the University of Memphis, where he helped the Tigers to a 57-14 record.
In addition, Memphis swept the Conference USA regular season and tournament titles and advanced to the NCAA Tournament in both of Stoudamire’s seasons on the bench.
Stoudamire is considered to be one of the best players in Arizona history. He finished his college career ranked fifth on the UA career scoring list with 1,849 points and his 663-career assists were the second-most in the Lute Olson era.
He is the only player in Arizona history to score 40 points in a single game twice and one of only three Wildcats to score more than 600 points in a season twice, finishing his career as the program record holder with 272 three-point field goals (now ranks third).
