Kunzer-Murphy joined the UNLV athletics department as its director in July 2013.

In that time, she's hired a slew of new coaches for the university's sports teams, including for basketball and football.

No word yet on when the search for a new athletics director will take place.

Casey Morell is the coordinating producer of Nevada Public Radio's flagship broadcast State of Nevada and one of the station's midday newscast announcers. (He's also been interviewed by Jimmy Fallon, whatever that's worth.)
