According to the Las Vegas Review Journal  the University of South Florida has made a firm contract offer to UNLV head coach Dave Rice. The newspaper confirms that USF has made the offer and that Rice is expected to give the school an answer as soon as this weekend.
Matt Youmans penned this report:
It appears Dave Rice has what every basketball coach desires. He’s in a no-lose situation.
Soon enough, Rice either will have a new and improved deal to remain at UNLV or he will accept a contract offer from South Florida worth close to $8 million. A decision is expected today.
Rice is contemplating South Florida’s proposal of a six-year contract for $1.3 million per year, according to sources. It’s a surprising twist to the Rebels’ already intriguing offseason.
The offer to Rice was extended Friday morning after he interviewed for the position on the East Coast. He returned to Las Vegas in the afternoon and met with UNLV athletic director Tina Kunzer-Murphy at the Thomas &Mack Center.
Kunzer-Murphy emerged from the meeting and said, “I still don’t have anything to report. Dave does have a solid offer from South Florida, and it’s a good offer. We want to keep him. There is a real push to try to keep him here. MORE…. UNLV head coach Dave Rice offered the USF job by James Williams
