UNLV will hire University of San Diego defensive coordinator Steve Irvin as its cornerbacks coach, a source close to the football program said Friday.
Irvin will replace David Lockwood, who left to join UNR’s staff.
A native Las Vegan, Irvin played at UNLV in 1997 and 1998 and received a kinesiology degree in 1999. He spent the past seven seasons at San Diego, taking over as defensive coordinator in 2013.
The Toreros allowed 17.5 points per game last season.
