Steve Irvin, the new cornerbacks coach at UNLV football, is believed to be only the third former UNLV player to return to the program as a full-time coach. He is also a Las Vegas native, having graduated from Eldorado High School.
“Steve was one of the up-and-coming young coordinators in the country,” UNLV coach Tony Sanchez said in a statement. “He did a phenomenal job at USD. He has a lot of experience with cornerbacks, has recruited Texas before and is a UNLV and Eldorado alumnus.”
