Lavin return TBA

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).

About the Contributor
Mitchell Petit-Frere, Managing Editor
Contact: [email protected]. Mitch likes Cristiano Ronaldo. Other than that, he’s been a great Sports Editor the past year. Mitch came in as the biggest question mark, with only half a year of experience as a staff writer and fresh from a semester abroad where he picked up weird fashion trends like scarves in the summer. He quickly answered any questions about whether he was up to the task, improving the sports section in every facet, while adding a unique voice in his columns. Now, as managing editor, I’m sure he’ll bring that same perspective and quality to the paper as a whole. — Mike Cunniff Editor-in-Chief, Emeritus
