 TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A court spokesman confirmed that Arizona basketball coach Lute Olson and his second wife, Christine Olson, have reached a divorce settlement.
Pima County Superior Court spokesman David Ricker said the judge in the case told him Thursday that lawyers had canceled a planned meeting on Friday because the couple came to a settlement agreement.
The lawyers did not immediately return calls from The Associated Press.
Ricker said Judge Carmen Cornelio ordered the lawyers to file a final divorce decree within 10 days. He said no details were available.
The couple were married for five years. Olson's first wife of 47 years, Bobbi, died in 2001 of ovarian cancer.
Olson filed for divorce in December on the same day he announced he was extending a leave of absence he had taken from his team through the end of the season. The 73-year-old Hall of Famer returned in April.
Interim coach Kevin O'Neill led the Wildcats to a 19-15 record and a first-round appearance in the NCAA tournament.
