The Wildcats fired Kevin Sumlin on December 12 after a 70-7 loss to rival Arizona State in the 94th Territorial Cup Game.

His 29-game term (9-20) ended with a 12-game losing streak, the longest in program history.

Due to the cancelation of UArizona’s final game against California, the 2020 Wildcats (0-5) are the first team in school history to finish a season with no wins.

Ed Doherty’s first Wildcat club in 1957 went 1-8-1.
