UNLV To Hire Dave Rice As Head Coach


UNLV said in statement today that it will hire BYU assistant coach Dave Rice to replace Lon Kruger as the program’s head men’s basketball coach.

Rice, who played on UNLV’s 1990 national championship team, has been an assistant for the Cougars for the last six years. The move comes as somewhat of a surprise since UNLV passed over former Runnin’ Rebels star Reggie Theus, who is currently an assistant coach for the Minnesota Timberwolves and was extremely successful as a head coach at New Mexico State from 2005-07.
