Fresno State

Fresno State coach Jerry Tarkanian will announce his retirement from coaching Friday after
a 31-coaching career, the past seven seasons at Fresno State, a source close to Tarkanian
told ESPN.com on Thursday.



Tarkanian's attorney met with Fresno State president John Welty Thursday and the three are
expected to meet again later Thursday to finalize the details of his retirement.



A source close to the 71-year old Tarkanian said he would be retained as a consultant at
Fresno State -- his alma mater -- at an estimated salary over $100,000 for two years. A
source also said the floor at the Save Mart Center, set to be finished in 2003, would also
be named for Tarkanian.



A source close to Tarkanian said he was worn down after Wednesday night's first-round
postseason NIT loss to Temple at Selland Arena.
