UNLV assistant basketball coach Rob Jeter is leaving to serve on Minnesota’s bench, sources close to the Rebels’ program said Monday.
Coach Marvin Menzies said he couldn’t comment.
The sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because no official announcement has been made, said Preston Laird could get a close look to replace Jeter. Laird, the director of basketball operations the past two seasons, was named a 30-for-30 honoree last year by the National Association of Basketball Coaches as one of the nation’s top young coaches.
247Sports originally reported Jeter’s move to Minnesota, where he will coach under Richard Pitino.
