Hoops coaching great back on the sidelines

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Eddie Sutton is coming out of retirement to replace Jessie Evans as San Francisco's basketball coach.

A West Coast Conference official familiar with the situation says that Evans is stepping down and that the 71-year-old Sutton would take over the Dons on an interim basis. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because there was no formal announcement.

Sutton's return was first reported by CBSSports.com.

Sutton retired as Oklahoma State's coach after the 2005-06 season. He has 798 victories in 36 seasons as a Division I coach at Creighton, Arkansas, Kentucky and Oklahoma State.

USF is 4-and-8 this year under Evans, who's in his fourth season at USF.
