The memorial service for longtime Arizona football coach Dick Tomey will be held at McKale Center on Friday, May 31.

The service, which is scheduled to start at 9:00 a.m. local time, will honor the winningest coach in Wildcats history.

Tomey, who passed away last Friday, May 10 from lung cancer, coached in Tucson from 1987-2000, posting a career win-loss record of 183-145-7 during his coaching career.

Tomey came to Tucson in 1987, after coaching at the University of Hawaii from 1977 to 1986. He finished his career at San Jose State, coaching the Spartans from 2005 to 2009.

Tomey's family asks that in lieu of flowers, that fans and supporters donate money to the Dick Tomey Legacy Fund.
