Arizona assistant Damon Stoudamire has notified recruits families and coaches he’s headed to Memphis to be an assistant
Arizona assistant Damon Stoudamire is headed back to Memphis, sources confirmed to ESPN. First reported by @JasonScheer.
Stoudamire’s two sons live in Atlanta, and that’s the primary reason for the move to Memphis. His relationship with Josh Pastner also key.
Stoudamire was a tremendous recruiter and was the only connection between the days of Lute and the days of Sean.
The team will now look to fill that gap and would not be surprised if Miller tried to tap another former player if he could.
