Disgraced College Coaches

Jerry Tarkanian

Former head basketball coach at Long Beach State and UNLV

Tarkanian spent most of his career battling the NCAA. After he left Long Beach State, the program was caught for recruiting violations under Tarkanian’s watch. During his time at UNLV, he avoided NCAA scrutiny till he signed Lloyd Daniels. A month before Daniels came on campus, he was caught buying drugs. Then, Richard Perry, a prominent gambler, emerged as being the man who led Daniels to UNLV. Close association with any gambler was prohibited by NCAA rules. UNLV was punished and Tarkanian told his players to stay away from Perry. Tarkanian was forced to resign after it was brought to light that his players were still in association with Perry.
