TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -Arizona hired Russ Pennell as an assistant basketball coach on Monday.
The former Arizona State assistant coach and radio analyst will join Lute Olson's staff after spending the last two seasons running a basketball academy in the Phoenix area.
He replaces Kevin O'Neill, who left the program after serving as interim coach during Olson's leave of absence last season.
Pennell was part of Rob Evans' staff in Tempe from 1998-2006, and worked for Evans at Mississippi. Earlier, he served on Eddie Sutton's Oklahoma State staff.
Olson has one opening left after Miles Simon's contract was not renewed last week.
