Mike Stoops’ wife, Trisha Nicole Stoops, officially filed for a divorce from her husband of eight years last week, according to Arizona Superior Court documents obtained by the Arizona Daily Wildcat.

“”The parties’ marriage is irretrievably broken and there is no reasonable prospect for reconciliation,”” the documents state.

The UA football coach announced Aug. 24 that he and his wife had separated with the intent to get a divorce. The court papers were submitted by Nicole Stoops the same day and were filed Friday.

“”This is a very hard time for us,”” Mike Stoops said in a statement Aug. 24, “”but more so for our two young children, as this is a very personal matter.””

Mike and Nicole Stoops have community, joint and common property that includes two houses and two condominiums in Tucson, a house in Plano, Texas, along with vehicles and funds in various financial accounts, according to the court documents.

Nicole has requested that the court enter an order “”equitably dividing the community, joint and common property of the parties between them.””

Nicole, 33, and Mike, 47, were married on July 20, 2001, in Norman, Okla.
