Arizona fires head coach Kevin Sumlin following 70-7 loss to Arizona State

Yahoo  Sports: Kevin Sumlin’s time at Arizona has come to an end.

Arizona announced Saturday that it has fired Sumlin after three seasons coaching the Wildcats. Over that span, Arizona has accumulated just a 9-20 overall record, including a current 12-game losing streak that began midway through the 2019 season and has carried into the 2020 season.



 


 

The most recent loss was the most embarrassing of the bunch as the Wildcats were embarrassed at home 70-7 by rival Arizona State on Friday night. The loss dropped the Wildcats to 0-5 on the year.

Sumlin, after getting fired at Texas A&M, was brought in by Arizona following the school’s decision to part ways with Rich Rodriguez. Rodriguez had a winning record in five of his six seasons leading the program, but Sumlin could never get things going in Tucson.
