Tony Sanchez: 'Calling a $1.9 billion stadium home can't hurt recruitment'

UNLV football coach Tony Sanchez likes the idea of sharing a stadium with the Raiders.

"Calling a $1.9 billion stadium home can't hurt recruitment," he said in a press conference following the Rebels' annual Spring Showcase on Saturday.

The Rebels will be able to utilize the professional facility when the Raiders aren't using it. UNLV President Len Jessup said he looks forward to a long-term partnership with the Raiders, calling the decision to move the team to Las Vegas a "historic day for Nevada."

Clark County Commission Chairman Steve Sisolak is also excited about the Rebels' new digs, saying that the new stadium will "elevate the UNLV football program to never-before-seen heights."
