There were a plethora of rumors regarding the job status of Niya Butts' future with Arizona for next year. Arizona athletics director Greg Byrne announced yesterday that she will be back for the 2014-15 season: "Recently, I’ve been receiving some emails and letters regarding the status of our women’s basketball program and head coach Niya Butts’ future. I know we are not where we want to be from a performance standpoint and Coach Butts and her staff are as disappointed as anyone. We are making needed infrastructure investments into our women’s basketball program with the upcoming Phase I renovation of McKale. I believe that will make a very positive impact for our program and the coaching staff moving forward. We also have a top 25 recruiting class coming in that wants to play for Coach Butts. Both of those things give me hope for the future, and because of that, Coach Butts and her staff will return next year."
