There will be an opening on Steve Wojciechowski's coaching staff, it seems.

Jason Scheer of WildcatAuthority.com, an Arizona Wildcats site, tweeted that Marquette assistant Mark Phelps would be joining Arizona's staff as an assistant coach, replacing Damon Stoudamire who left Arizona for Memphis on Monday.

Phelps came to Marquette last year as part of Wojciechowski's inaugural coaching staff. Prior to coming to Marquette, Phelps was an assistant at Missouri under Frank Haith alongside current DePaul head coach Dave Leitao.

Phelps also has experience at the head coaching level, having coached Drake University from 2008-2013. He compiled a 77-86 record in his time at Drake.

UPDATE (5/26): It's official. Steve Wojciechowski has confirmed Phelps will be moving on from the program.
