Candrea Named USOC Coach of the Year

More accolades for the man who has built the biggest UA dynasty. Don't get me wrong, a small part of me will die the day Lute Olson retires, but there is just no denying that the strongest sports dynasty at the UA for at least the last 10 years has been the softball team. Mike Candrea took over 20 years ago and has 1000 vicotries and an 0.85 winning percentage to show for his hard work and first class coaching.
