Former Cyclone Floyd Stays At USC


Former Iowa State head coach Tim Floyd is staying put as Southern California coach, turning down an offer to become men's basketball coach at Arizona.

Floyd announced his intentions at a campus news conference Thursday.

He was offered the Wildcat job Wednesday to replace Arizona interim coach Russ Pennell, who took over when former Iowa Hawkeye head coach Lute Olson retired for health reasons before the start of the season.

"I listened, I heard what they had to say," Floyd said. "But there is something really special about building your own traditions and your own history."
