Former assistant picked
to lead UNLV basketball
UNLV hired BYU associate coach Dave Rice as its head basketball coach on Sunday, picking him to return to the school where he was an assistant under four head coaches for 11 seasons.
The move, pending the approval of the Nevada Board of Regents, came a little more than a week after Lon Kruger left UNLV following seven seasons to become Oklahoma's new coach.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed. UNLV athletic director Jim Livengood, in a statement, said no further information would be available until a news conference scheduled for 4 p.m. today.
The 42-year-old Rice beat out three other finalists: Minnesota Timberwolves assistant and former UNLV star Reggie Theus, St. John's assistant Mike Dunlap and former Oregon coach Ernie Kent.
He played for coach Jerry Tarkanian as a reserve on UNLV's 1990 national championship team and 1991 Final Four team, then served as a Rebels assistant for 11 seasons under Tarkanian and three other coaches.
