TUCSON, Ariz. – University of Arizona baseball coach Andy Lopez will undergo triple bypass surgery on Monday at a local hospital. Lopez is currently in stable condition and is expected to make a full recovery and return coaching once cleared by doctors.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with Andy and his family," Vice President for Athletics Greg Byrne said Friday evening. "Thankfully the medical team caught it when they did and we expect Andy to make a full recovery. This is a great reminder for all us to be mindful of our health."

Now in his 13th season with the school, Lopez has led the Wildcats to eight postseason berths, including two College World Series appearances highlighted by the 2012 national championship. Lopez has a 1,124-685-7 (.621) in 31 years as a collegiate head coach and is 437-267-1 (.621) in 12 seasons at Arizona.
