Although the story was prematurely released, Arizona head coach Lute Olson has retired from his position.
Mike Dunlap is expected to take over for the season and athletic director Jim Livengood will begin a national search immediately.
Olson missed practice on Wednesday after reporting that was sick and initially it did not look like much. However, later in the day, he informed the program that he had made the decision to step down as head coach.
The retirement ends a roller coaster ride that has spanned over number months.
From taking a leave of absence to getting a divorce to hiring Kevin O' Neill and getting re married, Olson has done his best to remain head coach at Arizona.
With that being said, his health is the supposed reason for his retirement and the fact related to the situation have yet to be released.
More to come on this situation as it becomes available.
