TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Kevin Sumlin calls the head coaching job at Arizona "the right place and the right challenge."
He made the comment at a news conference introducing him as coach on Tuesday.
Sumlin said that when he spoke with Wildcats athletic director Dave Heeke about the job, talk inevitably turned to the Rose Bowl. Arizona is the only one of the original Pac-10 never to play in the game.
"I said, 'It is going to happen,'" Sumlin said. "'What time is that going to happen? Why not now and why not us?'"
