Most times when a potential list of coaches is formed in order to find a replacement is that, a list. However, in Las Vegas one can bet on almost anything and the latest is odds have been set up -- for entertainment purposes only -- on who will be the next UNLV head coach to replace Lon Kruger who left for Oklahoma.

The Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas has set up an odds list on who the next coach will be, and the top two choices are who we all expected with former UNLV players Reggie Theus and Dave Rice. Theus is currently an assistant in the NBA and is the favorite at 2-to-1 with current BYU assistant coach Dave Rice is listed at 3-to-1. A list would not be complete without a sucker bet, and this list has two names that fit the bill. The first is Bob Knight who is listed at 10,000-to-1 odds and former UNLV coach Jerry Tarkanian is listed at 25,000-to-1 odds on being named the next head coach at UNLV.

The full list is after the jump.
