Arizona entrepreneur Eller out of coma

PHOENIX -- A family spokesman said Karl Eller, whose name adorns the University of Arizona business college, has been brought out of a medically induced coma after a bicycle fall in California.

The Arizona Republic reported that his family said Eller, 84, this past weekend was taken off a respirator, and his doctors at Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla are optimistic he will make a full recovery.

His wife, Stevie Eller, said her husband fell as he was getting onto his bicycle during an early-morning ride June 15.

The fall resulted in fractures on Eller's right side and broken bones near his ear.

In 1968, Eller became a founding investor of the Phoenix Suns and went on to help found the Fiesta Bowl.
