    Craig Carter, a former assistant track and field coach for the University of Arizona who choked and threatened a former athlete with a box cutter, was sentenced Monday to five years in prison.

    Carter, 50, was convicted in March of aggravated assault and assault with a dangerous weapon for his April 2015 attack on former Wildcats discus thrower and shot-putter Baillie Gibson.
