Sooners coach Kruger appears on new UNLV ticket billboard

Whatever the answer, Kruger's picture appeared on a Vegas billboard this week promoting season ticket sales for UNLV basketball.
One problem: Kruger hasn't been the coach at UNLV since the 2010-2011 season. He's pictured on the billboard with UNLV football coach Bobby Hauck.
The Rebels' current coach, Dave Rice, took it in stride. Some in his position might have started packing up their office.
"I thought it was humorous," Rice, who is in his third year at UNLV, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. "It's one of those things that happens. But I'm the last person who would take himself too seriously.
"Hey, if Coach Kruger can help us sell tickets, great."
Not everyone is taking the mistake so well.
"To us, it's not a laughing matter," UNLV interim athletic director Tina Kunzer-Murphy told the Review-Journal. "We think what happened was the billboard company was doing us a favor by posting the ad but our marketing people never saw it.
"But it's being taken down and we hope to have a replacement with Dave and Bobby up."
