Biography

By any standards, Lute Olson is one of America's finest examples of character and leadership. Lute Olson is the head coach for the University of Arizona Men's Basketball team, and is one of just 38 head coaches in NCAA history to win 600 or more games.

Lute Olson has been with the University of Arizona for 20 seasons and he established both the Wildcat basketball program and himself as two of the preeminent figures on the collegiate basketball landscape.

Whether it's the 1997 national championship, four Final Four appearances, 19 consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances, ten Pacific-10 Conference titles, or the nation's best winning percentage over the past 16 seasons, winning basketball and Lute Olson go hand-in-hand.

Lute Olson has the title "Hall of Famer." He was selected for enshrinement into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame on June 5, 2002. In a career full of individual and team accolades, this honor ranks among the best. True to form, Coach Olson shared the recognition with his family, coaches and players.

Coach Olson owns a career record 691-239, which adds up to a gaudy winning percentage of .743. He has recorded a mark of 499-147 (.772) in his 20 years at University of Arizona, while being named the Pac-10 Coach of the Year seven times (2003, 1998, '94, '93, '89, '88, '86). Coach Olson also has guided University of Arizona to 16 consecutive 20-win seasons, making him one of only five coaches in NCAA history to record 25 or more 20-win seasons. He is one of 11 coaches who have taken two different college teams to the Final Four.

The lessons in leadership Lute Olson teaches are as valuable in the boardroom as they are in the family room or on the basketball court. Lute Olson's quiet confidence, class, and grounded sensibilities make him a widely sought after speaker on the topics of team building and leadership. Warm, easy going, and extremely capable at interacting with his audience, Lute Olson leaves his listeners with keys to success and leadership they can access long after they see him and hear him speak.
