Actor Bill Murray could be turning up at some U of A basketball games this season. His son, Luke Murray, has joined the UA basketball staff as a graduate assistant. Before his new gig in Arizona, Luke Murray served as an assistant coach at Post University in Connecticut.
Luke says he's always been a basketball lover, and that his famous father's supportive. "My father never pushed me in any kind of direction," the younger Murray told the press. "He's been a supporter. He's excited about the prospect of my career."
(For readers who may be wondering how much Luke resembles his father, this story on Yahoo! includes a photo.)
