Eugene, Ore. -- Oregon Ducks offensive coordinator Marcus Arroyo has been officially announced as the new head football coach at UNLV, per a statement from Director of Athletics Desiree Reed-Francois. This comes after a couple of weeks worth of speculation when following the firing of former head coach Tony Sanchez. 

Arroyo, 39, just finished his second year at Oregon, where he oversaw a top 20 scoring offense led by senior quarterback Justin Herbert and star running back CJ Verdell, and helped lead the Ducks to their first Pac-12 conference championship since 2014. In the conference title game against the University of Utah, the Ducks hung 37 points on the Utes and gashed the top rushing defense in the country for 239 yards. 

UNLV, fresh off another coaching change but just before the opening of their new football stadium (the Rebels will be tenants allowing the NFL's Las Vegas Raiders) will look to Arroyo to not only help on the field but in recruiting as well. 247Sports has ranked Arroyo in the top 4 among 120 Pac-12 assistant coaches in the last two recruiting cycles, and the offensive coordinator was instrumental in bringing players such as wide receiver Juwan Johnson and future quarterback Jay Butterfield to Eugene. 

There is still no word on whether or not Arroyo will be coaching in the Rose Bowl game on Jan. 1 against the University of Wisconsin. 

This story will be updated with new information as it becomes available.
