Bryce Harper Voices Opinion On UNLV Basketball Head Coaching Vacancy
Harper makes his selection for the next Runnin’ Rebels head coach
Phillies star Bryce Harper has his pick for the next UNLV men’s basketball head coach
Of all the crazy storylines that have surfaced throughout the UNLV men’s basketball offseason, I wasn’t anticipating Philadelphia Phillies superstar Bryce Harper to voice his opinion on the Runnin’ Rebels head coaching search.
Alas, here we are.
Harper, a Vegas native, says it’s a “no-brainer” that Mike Miller should be the next UNLV men’s basketball head coach. Miller is currently on the Memphis basketball staff under Penny Hardaway, his first season as a coach after a 17-year NBA career.
Harper’s not in the minority here, either. Miller is reportedly among the short list of candidates that have been rumored to take the job.
