Arizona names Stoops new head coach

| Sunday, Nov. 30, 2003

Mike Stoops, the younger brother of Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops , was introduced yesterday as the new head coach at Arizona and promised a return to the glory days of bowl games and all-out defense. The younger Stoops, 41, the top-ranked Sooners' co-defensive coordinator, inherits a team that went 2-10 and finished last in the Pac-10 for the first time.

  • Kansas accepted a bid yesterday to the Tangerine Bowl, the Jayhawks' first postseason appearance in eight years. The Jayhawks finished the regular season 6-6 under second-year coach Mark Mangino after going 2-10 a year ago. They will play North Carolina State (7-5) on Dec. 22 at the Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium in Orlando, Fla.


    Scott Harrison (20-2-1) knocked Manuel Medina (62-14) down four times, stopping him in the 11th round to regain the WBO featherweight title last night.

    We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

    While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

    We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

    We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

    We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

    We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

    We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
