Steve Lavin’s return to the sidelines in the wake of his father’s, Albert “Cap” Lavn’s death, will will be announced in the coming days, according to a press release.
Lavin wasn’t present on the sidelines at the Carrier Dome this past weekend, as he traveled home to San Francisco to be with family.

“We are grateful for the heartfelt encouragement, prayers and support received since our father’ passing,” Lavin said in the press release. “The thoughtful sentiments and caring messages we received via text, Twitter, e-mail and voicemail from friends, current players, former players, colleagues and college basketball fans have helped to give our family an emotional lift during a challenging time in our lives.”

Cap Lavin, 82, played collegiate basketball for the University of San Francisco during the early 1950’s. After college, he dedicated 43 years to the San Francisco public school system as an English teacher for Drake High School before a couple of shorter stints on the collegiate level at Cal, San Francisco State and Dominican College (now Dominican University).
