Arroyo Introduced at UNLV, Will Coach No. 6 Ducks in Rose Bowl vs. No. 8 Wisconsin
Oregon Ducks offensive coordinator Marcus Arroyo was officially introduced as the next head football coach at UNLV today.
Arroyo also made clear that he will be with the No. 6 Ducks when they battle No. 8 Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1, 2020.
From James Creppea of Oregon Live:
“The Rose Bowl is an opportunity that I plan on being a part of,” Arroyo said. “That is ultra exciting for what we’ve done and the athletes that I’ve had a chance to be a part of. Again, that’s an awesome thing.
“But I’m locked in here and have been full-speed ahead since we had those conversations about the opportunity.”
Our own, John Canzano, (along with Creppea’s article) brought up a little extra incentive for Arroyo to coach in The Granddaddy of Them All.
Pssst…. UNLV coach Marcus Arroyo will receive a $30,000 bonus if he coaches the Oregon Ducks in the Rose Bowl.
