Dave Rice will be named head coach at UNLV, according to Andy Katz of ESPN. Rice was a member of UNLV’s national championship team in 1990 and Final Four team in 1991.

He was the associate head coach at BYU.

Other names associated with the position were Reggie Theus, Ernie Kent and Mine Dunlap. Larry Brown reportedly inquired about the job.

Adam Zuvanich (@ZuviesViews) of the Lubbock Avalanche Journal writes that New Mexico coach Mike Locksley tops his list of coaches on the hot seat, followed by Colorado’s Dan Hawkins, Washington State’s Paul Wulff, and Texas A&M’s Mike Sherman now find themselves on the hot seat.

Zuvanich writes that Locksley and the Lobos are 0-6 and has lost their games by an average of 34 points. This on the heels of getting into an altercation with an assistant coach and being accused of discriminating against a longtime university employee.  All of this in the span of about 12 months.
