LOS ANGELES (AP) - Tim Floyd is staying put as Southern California coach, spurning an offer to become men's basketball coach at Arizona.

Floyd announced his intentions at a campus news conference
Thursday.

He was offered the job Wednesday to replace Arizona interim coach Russ Pennell, who took over when Hall of Fame coach Lute Olson retired for health reasons before the start of the season.

"I listened, I heard what they had to say," Floyd said. "But there is something really special about building your own traditions and your own history."

The 55-year-old coach has led the Trojans to the NCAA tournament three consecutive seasons, a first in the program's history, and this year he coached them to the Pac-10 tournament title.
