Meeting Lute Olson

One of Tucson's biggest local celebrities is former Arizona Wildcats head basketball coach Lute Olson.  He had a legendary career as coach of the team including a national championship in 1997.

I was able to get him on as a guest today on the Morning Blend, the first appearance he has ever made on the show.  He was a wonderful guest, along with author of the book "Tales From The Arizona Wildcats Locker Room" Steve Rivera (a longtime sports writer in this area).

Super nice guy, and kind enough to pose for a picture with ol' Ken.
