Tucson Fire says it's a reminder to use licensed contractors to install fireplaces.
With Tucson’s loss of football’s Copper Bowl, and the holiday Fiesta Bowl basketball classic at McKale Center — the UA will not be playing a home basketball game during the holidays for only the fourth time since 1984 — the enduring game in town over the holidays is tennis. The USTA Winter N…
Through 37 years of Pac-12 football, you could make a case that the league’s most skilled quarterbacks coach was Homer Smith, who later installed the UA’s first modern and proven offensive “system” in 1996-97.
Given the background of Arizona State AD Ray Anderson — he was an NFL money-man, a vice-president of operations for eight years — it’s not surprising the Sun Devils took almost double money (about $5 million annually) from Adidas and dumped their soon-to-expire deal with sports brand king Ni…
It would be a shock if the Fiesta Bowl, Arizona vs. Boise State, is played before a capacity crowd. Tickets are simply too expensive, but the Broncos report they have sold $1.5 million of their $1.9 million ticket allotment, which means you can expect almost 12,000 to 15,000 BSU fans. Arizon…
Here’s hoping Sean Miller’s wardrobe change, eschewing a tie, will trigger a fashion change in college basketball. Too many coaches wear $2,000 designer suits in a game played by sweaty college kids and watched by people in casual attire. College football figured it out years ago; former Ari…
Like father, like son: Cloverdale (California) High School forward John McMillan was the MVP of last week’s John McMillan Holiday Invitational Basketball Tournament in Northern California. That’s his grandfather. His father is Craig McMillan, starting guard on Arizona’s 1988 Final Four baske…
Santa Rita High grad Terrell Stoglin is averaging 27.7 points for Sagesse in the Lebanese pro basketball league, third of all players. In his last three games, the point guard has scored 21, 30 and 32 points.
When West Virginia athletic director Oliver Luck left the Mountaineers to accept a position with the NCAA last week, it triggered speculation that WVU will hire alumnus Rob Mullen for the vacancy. Mullen is the AD at Oregon. If that happens, the dominoes will continue to fall, and Arizona’s …

Boise State offensive coordinator Mike Sanford might have given the best description of UA’s Scooby Wright all year. Last week Sanford told Boise reporters: “It seems like he’s always in the right place at the right time in those critical moments. He gets very quick reads on the run/pass con…
After 18 years as minor-league manager, at every conceivable level, Sahuarita resident Charlie Montoyo was hired Friday to be third base coach of Tampa Bay Rays. Montoyo has been the manager of Durham Bulls for the last eight years, winning six International League division championships. Di…
In the days leading up to Arizona’s NCAA tournament appearances at McKale Center, UA coach Dave Rubio and his staff scouted and evaluated potential second-round opponent BYU and came to the same conclusion: the selection committee had blown it on the unseeded Cougars.
Boise State tailback Jay Ajayi might be the most skilled and talented running back Arizona has played this year. He’s Ka’Deem Carey with more speed, and has rushed for 1,689 yards this year. I watched him in TV games against BYU and Utah State and he is dynamic. Never heard of him? Ajayi was…
In a wardrobe rarity for college basketball, both coaches in Friday night’s Arizona-UTEP game, Sean Miller and Tim Floyd, didn’t wear a tie.
Catalina Foothills sophomore golfer Gavin Cohen chips his third onto the green during a practice round at Ventana Canyon on Tuesday, Sept. 23, 2014, in Tucson, Ariz.
I enjoyed the way Catalina Foothills golf standout Gavin Cohen last week announced he has accepted a golf scholarship to play for Jim Anderson at Arizona. Cohen, who is only a sophomore, and who has been scouted by Anderson since he was in middle school, packaged his announcement on twitter …
