Jerry Tarkanian (1973-1992)

To describe Jerry Tarkanian in one word is “winner.” Tark was hired as head coach on March 23, 1973, and in 19 seasons compiled an amazing 509-105 record. Tarkanian led the Runnin’ Rebels to postseason play 14 times, including nine consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances (1983-91) with UNLV’s first-ever National Championship in 1990 and back-to-back Final Fours. In 2005 the Thomas & Mack Center court was dedicated in his honor.
