The 74-year-old Olson suddenly announced his retirement last week, two days after he appeared at the Wildcats' media day. He said at the time he was ``energized'' and looking forward to his 25th season with Arizona.
Dr. Steven Knope said Tuesday an MRI confirmed the stroke, which left Olson with severe depression and impaired judgment.
Olson took a leave of absence last season for what he later termed a ``medical condition that was not life-threatening.''
