TUCSON, Ariz. -- Arizona baseball coach Andy Lopez is recovering after undergoing triple bypass surgery.

School officials say Monday's operation went well and he's being held in intensive care at a Tucson hospital.

They say Lopez will return to coaching after he's cleared by doctors.

The 59-year-old Lopez has a 437-267-1 record in 12 seasons at Arizona.

He has guided the Wildcats to eight postseason berths, including two College World Series appearances and the 2012 national championship.

Lopez has a 1,124-685-7 overall record in 31 years as a collegiate head coach at Cal State-Dominguez Hills, Pepperdine, Florida and Arizona.
