Have been told that Danny Peters, Arizona's well-regarded assistant director of operations, is now expected to re-join coach James Whitford as an assistant coach at Ball State.
Whitford, the former UA associate head coach, had two assistant coaches to hire after last season, because associate head coach Brett Nelson left to become an assistant coach at Marquette and Billy Wright left to be the head coach at Western Illinois.
To fill Peters' spot, UA will bring back Ben Tucker, a student manager at Arizona who worked under Kevin O'Neill, Russ Pennell and Sean Miller, and was an assistant at the College of Idaho last season. (Tucker's move was first reported by KGUN).
