Photo: UNLV billboard uses picture of wrong basketball coach


Do you notice anything wrong or unusual about this UNLV Runnin' Rebels billboard located on I-215 in Las Vegas?

Well, if you didn't, just know that it includes the wrong basketball coach.

Lon Kruger left UNLV in April 2011 to take the same position at Oklahoma. UNLV's current coach is Dave Rice, who succeeded Kruger, and has led the Rebels to a 51-19 record over the last two seasons, advancing to the second round of the NCAA Tournament each year.

Rice addressed the mistake with a bit of humor when telling the Las Vegas Review-Journal on Wednesday, "if Coach Kruger can help us sell ticket, great."
