Lute Olson to take leave from Arizona

Lute Olson to take leave from Arizona

Decision is not health-related

Arizona coach Lute Olson is expected to take an immediate leave of absence for a "personal matter."

According to Arizona sports information director Tom Duddleston, Arizona athletic director Jim Livengood is expected to make an announcement at 12:30 p.m. local time that the 73-year-old Olson will take some time off and will be replaced by assistant coach Kevin O'Neill.

Duddleston told FOXSports.com that he was unaware of the nature of Olson's leave of absence and whether it had anything to do with his health. He also was also unable to say how long Olson would be away from the team.

However, Olson's wife, Christine's public relations firm released a statement saying that it was not a health matter.

"For the past 25 years, I have always given 110 percent to the team and this job," Olson said in the statement. "In light of this personal matter, I feel it's in the best interests of the team and university to take a leave of absence.

"It isn't a health scare, but rather a personal matter that needs my undivided attention."

The last time Olson left his post was in 2001 after the death of his first wife, Bobbi.
