Marvin Menzies: UNLV Coach
Marvin Menzies became the 13th full-time head coach in UNLV men's basketball history on April 21, 2016.
Menzies, 56, came back to Las Vegas after nine years as the head coach at New Mexico State. After completing his first year leading the Runnin' Rebel program, he brought in a recruiting class for the 2017-18 season that has been ranked as high as No. 12 in the country and includes McDonald's High School All-American Brandon McCoy and National Junior College Player of the Year Shakur Juiston.
The 2017-18 squad spent the entire summer together in Las Vegas, something his first UNLV team was unable to do, and achieved a 3.24 team grade point average during that time. Under his direction, New Mexico State was extremely successful making appearances in the postseason each of his last five seasons in Las Cruces, and six of his last seven.
Menzies led the Aggies to their fifth straight 20-win season in 2015-16, and seventh in eight years, as they went 23-11 overall and 13-1 in conference play. When Menzies left NMSU, the Aggies had won 35 straight home conference games, which was the second-longest such streak in the nation.
New Mexico State won its second straight outright regular-season Western Athletic Conference Championship in his final season in Las Cruces, which led to a berth in the NIT.
From 2012-15, Menzies led his team to four straight WAC Tournament titles and NCAA Tournament berths. His team also won the conference tournament crown and appeared in the NCAA Tournament in 2010. He led the Aggies to the outright regular-season conference title in 2014-15 and a co-championship in 2008.
Menzies owns a career record of 209-132 (.613) over 10 seasons as a Division I head coach and he has gone 107-51 (.677) in conference play.
