This is very interesting. Did it ever come out why he stepped down last year? He must not have liked the direction the interm coach was taking it because he made him leave when he came back.
"Personal reasons", many of which are assumed to be his divorce from him ex-wife and subsequent proposal to a new chick. However I really don't know a thing about him and so that's as much as I would really care to know about Lute's personal life.
I still remember how much Iowa fans loved Lute when he was a Hawk..and he is a great coach in my opinion. There was a bumper sticker and chant that went: Lute, Lute, Lute!!!
When he decided to leave and go to Arizona I remember seeing many bumper stickers (probably Cyclone fans) that went..
Lute, Lute, Lute...Gone, Gone, Gone
I'm sorry to hear about Lute having health problems. I think everything that has happened over the last year as pretty much screwed AZ in the short term but Lute probably didn't have much of a choice if he had a stroke. Best of luck to him.
