LAS VEGAS — A Las Vegas high school football coach who built an 85-5 record with a team that won six consecutive state championships is becoming the new head coach at UNLV.
The university says UNLV President Donald Snyder and athletic director Tina Kunzer-Murphy will introduce Tony Sanchez as the new coach on Thursday. Sanchez is leaving Bishop Gorman High School for the Rebels position.
The University of Nevada board of regents is expected to approve the hire next week.
Sanchez replaces Bobby Hauck, who announced his resignation in November after compiling a 15-49 record in five seasons at UNLV.
The Rebels finished 2-11 this year, the worst in the Mountain West Conference.
