AZCentral is one of many sites reporting Russ Pennell has received a head coaching job and he'll stay in the state of Arizona. The interim head coach that led the Wildcats to the Sweet 16 has agreed to a long-term deal that will make him the head coach of Grand Canyon University. The Division II team plans on filing a petition to move up to Division I. A press conference introducing Pennell will be held tomorrow.
Thanks for everything Russ and good luck at GCU.
