HUGE upside. Terrific recruiter, has had major coaching responsibilities with Mark Few, and helped build the Zags program into what it is.
Arizona is planning to hire former Gonzaga assistant coach Tommy Lloyd, per @GoodmanHoops
Sources: Arizona is expected to hire Gonzaga's Tommy Lloyd as its next head basketball coach.
As an Arizona alum, I kind of wanted it to be kept in the family for Lute and the ex-players.
But I think the Wildcats may have hit a home run with the Tommy Lloyd hire. COLUMN:
Arizona is expected to hire longtime Gonzaga assistant Tommy Lloyd as its next head coach, sources confirmed to ESPN. First by @GoodmanHoops
. Lloyd was the coach-in-waiting at Gonzaga, considered the best international recruiter in college basketball.
Fascinated to see what Tommy Lloyd looks like as a head coach, and fascinated to see how Gonzaga works with his departure. He’s a really sharp coach, obviously great recruiter. All around, the Tommy Lloyd hire at Arizona has pretty huge ramifications for west coast college hoops.
After 20+ years, long time Gonzaga assistant Tommy Lloyd is departing and will be the new head coach of the Arizona Wildcats. https://t.co/Fx5Ng90hsB
“Outside of Mark (Few), there’s nobody that’s been more important to our success over all these years than Tommy Lloyd. I don’t think that’s disputable.”
Tommy Lloyd just finished a Zoom meeting with the Arizona team.
I'm at Monroe Park where a demonstration against police brutality is apparently planned, according to this anonymous internet info. A couple VCU bike cops and RPD's MVP (most voyeuristic pig) Lt. Tommy Lloyd are on the scene. I'll only be documenting police actions tonight. https://t.co/LSAZH0agNl
"I think he's the main key to this program for getting international players over."- Domas Sabonis on Tommy Lloyd.
Arizona fans, get to know your new head coach:
) is hiring Gonzaga assistant Tommy Lloyd as the Wildcats' new men's head basketball coach.
Lloyd spent the last 20 years helping Mark Few build Gonzaga's program from mid-major castoff to men's basketball powerhouse https://t.co/gL4r4RkFGJ
The hiring of Tommy Lloyd means Arizona will have first-time head coaches in both men’s and women’s basketball and football. Don’t know if that’s every happened before at a power-conference school.
The Adia Barnes hire certainly worked out. Let’s see how the other two go.
Thank you to @Dave_Heeke
for your leadership in this process to find the new head coach of @APlayersProgram
, and to the many coaches, former players, and basketball experts who provided us with invaluable advice. Welcome Coach Tommy Lloyd!
Wes Miller to Cincinnati. Tommy Lloyd to Arizona. Good jobs go to good candidates, though I figured Cincy might make an in-the-family hire.
Tommy Lloyd quietly noting which UofA alum weren’t on board with him as the next head coach. https://t.co/3KEsC8C62p
Tommy Lloyd needs to win everyone over by following the Jedd Fisch lead and opening up practice 😂
The most important question that needs to be asked: Will Tommy Lloyd stand in the corner during Arizona's big moments???
My guys at @slipperstillfit
broke down his unique habit.
- Arizona freshman guard Kerr Kriisa enters transfer portal, open to returning
- Tommy Lloyd embracing challenge of Arizona job despite ‘potential obstacles’
- Ex-Husky Erik Stevenson went looking for a coach to hold him accountable
I’m definitely happy with the Tommy Lloyd hire. I think that he has a lot of potential and can lead us to the Promised Land. The land that Lute once showed us. I hope all of your wounds with Miller heal and we rise together as one. I’ll be buying tickets. #BearDown
