Jerry Tarkanian hospitalized

Former UNLV head basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian was hospitalized late Wednesday night according to a report by KLAS-TV.

The 83-year-old Tarkanian, who has battled a number of health issues in recent years including a stroke, was in the emergency room undergoing tests at Valley Hospital after what the report described as “showing signs of weakness.” The station attributed the report to family members.

Tarkanian, who coached UNLV from 1973 to 1992, directed the Runnin’ Rebels to the national championship in 1990 and was inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in September.
