More proof Lute Olson is no longer coaching Arizona

Arizona State has beaten Arizona tonight, and if you watched the game, you saw referee Dave Libbey eliminate any last chance the Wildcats had of victory by calling an illegal screen on UA’s Jordan Hill in the final seconds.
Arizona was down two at the time with a chance to tie or take the lead. Instead, after a technical was called on an Arizona assistant protesting the foul, ASU took a six-point lead and held on to win.
The call was questionable, at best — even the former ASU player on the FSN broadcast said it should have been a no-call. And while it may serve as further proof of the kind of shaky whistle that epitomizes Pac-10 officiating, it also was additional evidence that Lute Olson is no longer coaching Arizona. You think that call is made if Olson is still standing on the UA sidelines?
Arizona is now 2-5 in Pac-10 play and its next conference game is a week from Thursday when the Huskies make their annual trek to Tucson.
