PHOENIX — Former UNLV and New Mexico State head basketball coach Marvin Menzies is joining Grand Canyon University as an associate head coach.

The Phoenix school announced Thursday that Menzies will be part of head coach Dan Majerle's staff.

Grand Canyon has won at least 20 games for four consecutive seasons and reached the past two WAC Tournament championship games.

The 57-year-old Menzies had a 198-111 from 2007-16 at New Mexico State, leading the Aggies to four consecutive NCAA tournament bids from 2012-15.

He also turned UNLV from an 11-win team in 2016-17 to a 20-win squad in 2017-18, the Runnin' Rebels' first 20-win season in four years.

Menzies has coached college basketball for 29 years and honed his recruiting skills while an assistant at Louisville, UNLV, USC and San Diego State.
