Reports: Dave Rice To Coach At UNR

A person with knowledge of the situation confirmed Monday that former UNLV basketball coach Dave Rice has been hired as an assistant at rival Nevada.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the school had not officially announced the hire.

Rice, a member of the Runnin' Rebels' 1990 national championship team, was let go at UNLV in January during the middle of his fifth season. He was 98-54 as UNLV's head coach, leaving Las Vegas with the third-most wins in program history.
