Tim Floyd will be named basketball coach at Arizona, Mark Asher of Sports 620 KTAR, ESPN's radio affiliate in Phoenix, is reporting according to multiple sources.

Floyd is meeting tonight with Arizona athletic director Jim Livengood to work out the final details of the deal and an announcement is expected Thursday, according to sources.

Floyd, 55, has spent the last four seasons at USC with an 85-50 record. He led the Trojans to three NCAA tournament appearances -- including the Sweet 16 in 2007.

Floyd previously coached in the NBA with the Chicago Bulls in 1999-2002 and the New Orleans Hornets in 2004.

He was also the head coach at Iowa State, New Orleans and Idaho.

Lute Olson retired as coach at Arizona prior to the start of the season. Arizona advanced to the Sweet 16 with interim coach Russ Pennell.

What an arse. Well, there goes Demar Derozan (the Compton boy) most likely now as well as probably Taj Gibson, possibly Daniel Hackett & Dwight Lewis too.

He's staying.

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Arizona is still looking for a replacement for Hall of Famer Lute Olson after Southern California coach Tim Floyd turned down the job.

Floyd announced his decision in a meeting with reporters in Los Angeles Thursday afternoon. Floyd said he not only visited Arizona but also spoke to Memphis about its opening.

"I felt that I needed to look at those two programs," Floyd told reporters on Thursday. "I am at a point where I want to do something really special and I feel like I needed to go look at an elite program.

"But there is something really special about building your own traditions, your own histories and doing it with a group of guys that you love. ... I have never been more excited to be a Trojan.

Okay I take it back. He's not an arse and there's a great chance some of those players I mentioned stay now since USC's getting a pretty good recruiting class this year. I'm the arse.

Floyd just made USC look about 20 times more awesome than it already is.
