TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- Former University of Arizona basketball star Steve Kerr and his wife have pledged $1 million toward the ongoing renovation of McKale Center and future academic facility enhancements.
McKale's renovation will impact all 20 of the Tucson school's sports programs and specifically men's and women's basketball, volleyball and gymnastics, which use McKale as their competition site.
Renovations are expected to be complete by the start of the basketball regular season for the Wildcats.
The first aspect of the renovation project was completed at the beginning of 2014 with the installation of a high-definition scoreboard.
Kerr now is the Golden State Warriors' coach and was the Phoenix Suns' general manager from 2007-10. His wife, Margot, also is a UofA alum.
