Sources tell Wildcatscoop.com that assistant Russ Pennell will now be the head coach.
Many thought that Mike Dunlap would take over the responsibilities from Lute Olson but Dunlap slept on the decision and decided not to take over for the season.
With the decision of both Dunlap and the athletic department, it pretty much guarantees that a new face will head the program next year.
Pennell is an ex-assistant coach at Arizona State, Mississippi and Oklahoma State, and Arizona hired him from his position as coach of the AAU program Arizona Premier.
More details on the situation as they become available.
