Marcus Arroyo fired after three seasons at UNLV

UNLV announced a change in leadership on Monday, with head football coach Marcus Arroyo fired after three seasons at the helm. Arroyo went 7-23 (5-17) overall with no bowl appearances during his tenure.

“We thank Marcus Arroyo for his unwavering efforts leading our student-athletes on and off the field for these three seasons,” AD Erick Harper said in a statement. “His program represented this institution in the community and classroom in a manner that is to be commended. However, with our increased expectations at UNLV we felt a change was in order at this time. We all wish Marcus and his family the best in their future endeavors.”

The Rebels were 5-7 (3-5) this year, their best record under Arroyo, but have not been to a bowl game since the 2013 season.
