Steve Fisher retiring as basketball coach

Steve Fisher retiring as basketball coach

Fisher had coached since the 1988-1989 season, where he began with the University of MI.

Former San Diego State University and University of MI head basketball coach Steve Fisher announced his retirement on Monday.

After a rough 5-23 start in his first season, Fisher went on to make the Aztecs a household name not only in college basketball, but in March, where he won six Mountain West regular season conference championships and four Mountain West conference tournament championships.

Combined with his previous school, Fisher led his teams to 570 victories, three Final Four appearances, six Sweet 16 appearances (two at San Diego State), including the 1989 national championship.

Fisher, a Herrin, Ill., native and graduate of Illinois State, also worked as an assistant coach at Wester Michigan from 1979 to 1982. He'll replace Steve Fisher. "I am happy, though, for him and his wife". That's important to me.

Fisher previously coached at MI, guiding the Wolverines to the NCAA championship in 1989, just weeks after the firing of coach Bill Frieder, who had accepted the coaching position at Arizona State just before the NCAA tournament began.

In just three seasons, he had the Aztecs in the NCAA Tournament, a feat they'd accomplished only three times prior.

"San Diego State is my legacy", Fisher said.

Steve Fisher will always be the "Michigan man" who was promoted to head coach on the eve of the 1989 NCAA Tournament and led the Wolverines to the national title.

Fisher said he will not completely disappear from the program: he will still have an active role in the program as a part-time employee with the university. Fisher went on to be named head coach, recruiting the "Fab Five", which made the NCAA title game in both 1992 and 1993.

Dutcher's father, Jim Dutcher, played football and basketball at Michigan before serving as head basketball coach at Eastern Michigan (1966-72) and as an assistant at Michigan (1972-75).

In 1991, MI recruited the most highly touted freshman class in college basketball history.

Forward Malik Pope said it “was nothing but excitement” playing for Fisher. I have to go here.”.
