LAS VEGAS (AP) - Bishop Gorman High School coach Tony Sanchez is set to take over UNLV’s football program.

UNLV said Wednesday that President Donald Snyder and athletic director Tina Kunzer-Murphy will introduce Sanchez as the coach Thursday. The University of Nevada board of regents is expected to approve the hiring next week.

The 40-year-old Sanchez was 85-5 at Las Vegas’ Bishop Gorman, the top-ranked high school team in the country. The Gaels finished 15-0 this season and won their sixth consecutive Nevada state championship Saturday.

Snyder replaces Bobby Hauck, who announced his resignation in November after compiling a 15-49 record in five seasons at UNLV.

The Rebels were 2-11 overall this year and 1-7 in the Mountain West Conference.
