Reggie Geary hires on at UA

In what's got to be a dream come true for fans and for Mr. Geary (UA '92-'96) too, Lute today re-introduced Reggie Geary as the new assistant UA men's basketball coach. Reggie's exuberant smile, constant hustle, and deadly defense make him an excellent yardstick for once and future Cats to measure up to. What a quick transition for a guy who finished his professional career in Kiev (2003-04), got a season of coaching experience under his belt at FWHS, and received his degree from the UA. Reggie replaces Rodney Tention on the staff, and was chosen over another former Wildcat, Miles Simon. I see only good things coming out of this, especially after reading things like this:
"My family and I are excited about the opportunity and I am really looking forward to getting started, working hard and continuing the great tradition that is Arizona basketball."
You just know Sparky's got his head in a bucket of cold water, screaming his 'stache off after getting this news.
