Todd Simon, the head coach of basketball powerhouse Findlay Prep, has joined the University of Nevada at Las Vegas men's basketball program as an assistant coach.
Simon, 32, spent seven years at Findlay Prep, having been named head coach last year and steering the team to a 35-1 record.
"We are excited to add Todd Simon to our staff," UNLV head coach Dave Rice said. "He brings head coaching experience and tremendous success at the prep school level. Coach Simon has a strong back at UNLV, having been part of Lon Kruger's staff for two seasons. Todd has a tremendous work ethic and will be a terrific complement to our staff in all areas."
Prior to working at Findlay Prep, Simon was a video assistant for the Runnin' Rebels from 2004 to 2006.
"I'm excited to return to a great program and to be part of Coach Rice and his staff's vision for UNLV basketball," said Simon.
