Hall Of Fame Coach, Lute Olsen, Dies At 85
Coach Olsen, who always wore his signature starched white dress shirt, died this week at 85. He had a remarkable career. 24-2 in his first year at Long Beach State, then a Final Four with Iowa, and several Final Fours and a National Championship with Arizona in 1997.

I was fortunate enough to meet Coach Olsen in a social setting, when he came to the hospitality room at the Ventana Canyon Resort in Tucson to visit with the fans, family, and coaches of the visiting teams at the Fiesta Bowl Classic Holiday Tournament @ Arizona in December of 2004. The Richmond Spiders, Butler Bulldogs, and Eastern Washington Eagles were there to participate with Olsen’s Arizona Wildcats. Coach Olsen was extremely gracious and an impressive figure and host. One of those special memories!

He had the most impressive head of hair I have seen in college basketball.

He had an impressive career. 1 championship. 5 final fours at two schools. I am not too impressed by 20-win seasons at power schools, since they can buy most of it, but he had three 30-win seasons, and that is tough at any level.
