UNLV hires Menzies as basketball coach after Beard bolts

LAS VEGAS (AP) UNLV moved swiftly to hire a basketball coach after Chris Beard's sudden exit, agreeing with New Mexico State's Marvin Menzies on a five-year contract Saturday.

A former UNLV assistant, Menzies was one of the final candidates to replace Dave Rice, who was fired in January. Menzies' contract must still be approved by UNLV's board of regents.

"He has spent almost a decade as a Division I head coach, has won regular-season and conference tournament championships and has led his team to multiple NCAA Tournament appearances," athletic director Tina Kunzer-Murphy said in a statement. "He has connections to our university and our community, and respects the tradition of Runnin' Rebel basketball."
