RIP Coach Jerry Tarkanian: CYInterview Pulls a Conversation with the Coach from Our Archives

CYInterview would like to extend its condolences to the family and friends of late college basketball coach Jimmy Tarkanian. The coaching legend, best known as the head coach of the UNLV Rebels from 1973-1992, passed away earlier this week. He was 84 years old.

Coach Tarkanian’s 1990 UNLV team won the NCAA tournament and college basketball’s national championship. Jimmy Tarkanian also spent time coaching at Long Beach State and Fresno State, where he led both schools to the NCAA Tournament.

Arguably, Coach Tarkanian was the most accomplished sports figure in Las Vegas history. After retiring, he made his home in Las Vegas where he was the head coach at UNLV for 20 seasons.

In 2006, I was honored to speak with the Jerry Tarkanian about his coaching career, while he was promoting his book Runnin’ Rebel: Shark Tales of “Extra Benefits,” Frank Sinatra, and Winning It All.
