The Pac-12 announced Tuesday that all sports have been postponed until at least January 2021. It’s a crushing decision for players, coaches and anyone else associated with college athletics.

Here’s how the Arizona Wildcats are reacting. This will be updated as more reactions become available.

Kevin Sumlin statement

“Although our football program is disappointed that we will not have the opportunity to compete this fall, we know that this decision was made in the best interests of the health and safety of our student-athletes. I hurt for the young men and coaches in our football program who have devoted their lives to the game. But we will persevere and support our student-athletes and be ready for when we are able to compete again. I am extremely proud of how our entire staff, and most importantly, our student-athletes have handled—and will continue to handle—the ever-changing dynamics of 2020.

We are grateful for the leadership of President Robbins and Dave Heeke during this unprecedented time, as our deliberative and well though-out policies and procedures at the University of Arizona are surely among the best in the nation.”
