By the time Byrne hired Rodriguez in November 2011, it was too late to submit changes to Arizona’s Nike-made uniforms for the 2012 season.
There will be some tweaks for 2013.
“I guess it’s a little bit different look, but it’s not a whole lot different. I mean, it’s not drastic,” Rodriguez recently told TucsonCitizen.com.
Arizona hasn’t released details or pictures of the new design, and Rodriguez said he wanted to show the players before discussing it.
“It’s not something that you would be like, ‘Sheesh, that’s completely off the wall,’” Rodriguez said.
Arizona wore four helmets this season, including the introduction of copper and red, contributing to the Cats using a different uniform combination for each game. Red and copper helmets will continue to be in the mix on occasion.
“Our colors are still going to red, white and blue,” Rodriguez said. “There are no plans for a copper jersey.”
