News and notes from Arizona's presser

Arizona coach Mike Stoops said he's interviewed three candidates to replace Sonny Dykes at offensive coordinator and may make a decision as early as Friday.

Stoops is expected to name co-coordinators, giving offensive line coach Bill Bedenbaugh a promotion, but he wouldn't confirm that Wednesday.

Greg Brown and Tim Kish have been named co-defensive coordinators. Kish was promoted from linebackers coach and Brown was hired away from Colorado.

Stoops signed a class of 20 on Wednesday and also announced some other team news.
