Eddie Sutton is going to get another shot at his 800th victory.
The former Oklahoma State coach will come out of retirement to coach San Francisco for the remainder of the season in an attempt to win his 800th game.
Sutton's return was first reported by CBS Sports.com.
Sutton's 798 wins at Oklahoma State, Arkansas, Kentucky and Creighton are the fifth-highest total for any men's NCAA Division I basketball coach. When his victories at Tulsa Central High School and the College of Southern Idaho are included, he won exactly 1,000 games before retiring from coaching in May.
Sutton pleaded no contest to misdemeanor aggravated drunken driving and two other charges following a February 2006 car accident that prematurely ended his time on the sidelines.
Current Dons coach Jessie Evans will announce his resignation as coach later Wednesday, The Associated Press is reporting.
San Francisco has lost five of its last six games in addition to the NCAA suspension of one of its international players.
