Report: Jason Terry likely returning to Arizona as assistant coach
One Arizona Wildcats legend appears poised to return to the program.
College basketball insider Jeff Goodman reported Tuesday that former NBA Sixth Man of the Year Jason Terry has emerged as the leading candidate to join Arizona head coach Sean Miller’s staff as an assistant.
Terry, a 19-year NBA veteran who has since been working as an assistant GM for the G League’s Texas Legends, played for Arizona from 1995 to 1999. He was a key contributor on the team that won the national title in 1997 and graduated as one of the top scorers in school history.
The 42-year-old Terry recently called on his alma mater to clean up their act, and now it seems that he will get an opportunity to help them do that himself.
