Reports: Arizona Legend Lute Olson In “Fight Of His Life”

Legendary coach is not doing well at the moment

Oregon State v Arizona
 LOS ANGELES, CA - MARCH 10: Hall of fame head coach Lute Olson watches the Arizona Wildcats take on the Oregon State Beavers in the quarterfinals of the 2011 Pacific Life Pac-10 Men’s Basketball Tournament at Staples Center on March 10, 2011 in Los Angeles, California.

We are very sorry to see this: reports out of Tucson say that Lute Olson is in hospice care.

People now just see Arizona as a power but he built that and it has remained so. He’s probably the most beloved person in Tucson.

We hope for the best for coach Olson and his family. He’s a good man.
