UNLV tabs South Dakota State's Otzelberger as next coach

UNLV has hired South Dakota State's T.J. Otzelberger as its next basketball coach.

Otzelberger spent the past three seasons at South Dakota State, going 70-33 while leading the Jackrabbits to the NCAA Tournament twice. South Dakota State won the Summit League regular-season title this season, but ended up in the NIT after losing in the conference tournament.

"When I set out to find the next coach of our Runnin' Rebels, I sought a hard-working, laser-focused head coach who personifies our core values; who knows what success looks like; who is passionately committed to winning; and who is at ease with being the face of our storied basketball program. T.J. exemplifies these attributes," UNLV athletic director Desiree Reed-Francois said in a statement Wednesday.
