Arizona announced on Wednesday it has hired former Gonzaga assistant Tommy Lloyd as its next men’s basketball coach.

Over the past few weeks, Lloyd had emerged as the favorite to replace Sean Miller in Tucson. Arizona looked at coaches with connections to the Wildcats, namely Pacific‘s Damon Stoudamire, Georgia Tech‘s Josh Pastner and Los Angeles Lakers assistant coach Miles Simon, but the program opted to go outside the family.

Lloyd has been at Gonzaga since 2000, serving as an assistant coach under Mark Few for the past 20 seasons. The Bulldogs have reached the NCAA tournament in every season since Lloyd joined the program. They reached the national championship game twice, in 2017 and this past season, when their unbeaten record was ended by Baylor.
