Meet the Coaches

Lute Olson

Head Coach

 Since taking over at Arizona in 1983, Coach Olson has led the Wildcats to a record of 549 wins and 164 losses (.770), including four trips to the Final Four (?'88, ?'94, ?'97, ?'01), one national championship (1997), and one national runner-up (2001).  When combined with the rest of his prestigious coaching career, these numbers add up to an overall record of 1,024 wins and 354 losses (.743), five Final Four teams (the other being Iowa in 1980), 21 consecutive NCAA tournament appearances, 11 Pac-10 Conference Titles, and a World Championship title in 1986.  His personal honors include being named the Pac-10 Conference Coach of the Year seven times, the Big Ten Coach of the Year three times, and the National Coach of the Year in 1980.  He was also inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in 2002.  Taking into account his entire Division I career, Coach Olson has been in the NCAA Tournament 24 of the last 26 years and is one of only five NCAA coaches to lead teams to twenty-win seasons at least twenty-six times.  He is the winningest coach in Pac-10 history with 305 wins.

Jim Rosborough
Associate Head Coach

After 15 years at Arizona and 25 with Coach Olson, Coach Rosborough is very familiar with the philosophy of Wildcat Basketball.  Working primarily on defense and in preparing the team for their next  opponent,  Rosborough has been an integral part of the team’s nine 25-win seasons in his time here.  Another one of his main responsibilities is the development of Arizona’s
backcourt players.  He has helped turn such players as Damon Stoudamire, Mike Bibby, and Jason Terry into the NBA-caliber players that they are today.  He is also a big part of the collegiate successes of Miles Simon and Jason Gardner.

Miles Simon
Assistant Coach

Returning to Arizona as an Assistant Coach seven years after his stellar playing career ended in 1998, Miles Simon looks to bring his extensive knowledge of the perimeter positions to a talented group of Wildcat players.  Simon, drafted in the 2nd round by the Orlando Magic in the 1998 NBA draft, was the Most Outstanding Player of the 1997 Final Four and helped lead Arizona to the coveted National Title.

Josh Pastner
Assistant Coach

A member of Arizona’s 1997 National Championship team and an Academic All-America nominee, Coach Pastner now works as both a recruiter and in the development of the program’s post players. During his tenure he has helped to guide the successes of Luke Walton and Channing Frye.
