DETROIT -- Tim Floyd is in Arizona, presumably meeting about succeeding Lute Olson.
KVOA News 4 in Tucson is reporting that Floyd traveled from Santa Monica to Tucson via private plane arranged by the University of Arizona. Sources told CBSSports.com that athletic director Jim Livengood opted to go this direction after being rebuffed to varying degrees by several coaches -- among them Mark Few (Gonzaga), John Calipari (Kentucky), Bruce Pearl (Tennessee), Jamie Dixon (Pittsburgh), Tom Izzo (Michigan State) and Rick Pitino (Louisville).
Floyd has been at Southern California four seasons.
He's made three NCAA tournaments.
