Livengood quiet on UNLV rumors

Multiple media outlets are reporting that Arizona Athletic Director Jim Livengood’s name has been rumored for the opening at the same position at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

The Arizona Daily Star, Las Vegas Sun and Las Vegas Review-Journal have reported interest by UNLV, while the two Nevada papers have also said that UNLV President Neal Smatresk has denied a hire.

At Arizona’s football game against USC at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Saturday, Livengood was asked whether he had visited Las Vegas and if there was any truth to him possibly joining UNLV’s athletic department.

“”I can’t say anything,”” Livengood said.

The athletic director’s contract has yet to be extended through the Arizona Board of Regents, and there was no mention of such an extension at this week’s ABOR meeting.
