TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -Arizona coach Lute Olson has resigned after 24 years with the Wildcats.
Athletic director Jim Livengood confirmed Olson's decision after hours of news reports speculating about the 74-year-old Hall of Famer's future.
ESPN's Dick Vitale first reported the story, saying Olson would be replaced by assistant coach Mike Dunlap, a former Denver Nuggets assistant and Metro State coach who joined the program in May.
Olson missed all of last season after taking a personal leave of absence for what he later termed ``a medical condition that was not life-threatening.''
When Olson returned from his leave in April, he said he planned to coach for the remainder of his contract, which runs through 2011.
