Navy's Ken Niumatalolo has been offered Arizona Wildcats coaching job

Ken Niumatalolo is unexpectedly absent from the Navy football offices and has emerged as the leading candidate to replace Rich Rodriguez as Arizona's football coach.

Niumatalolo, a disciple of former UA coach Dick Tomey, is the favorite following the final round of interviews. Niumatalolo has been offered the job, a source close to the situation told the Star.

Tough loss for them should he leave.

I think the guy that started this rumour could get a job with the Hawaii Emergency Management group. False alarm! Kevin Sumlin to be Arizona's next coach.

Actually the job was his until the U of A president ordered the job offer rescinded after the U of A QB tweeted that he did not come to Arizona to run the triple option .

Probably explains to a great degree our trouble getting QB's to commit here !!!!

If that's the reason they went with Sumlin over the Navy coach, then the inmates truly are running the asylum.
