LAS VEGAS (AP) UNLV is proposing a five-year contract that pays $3.7 million to its new men’s basketball coach, Marvin Menzies.

Documents filed with the Nevada Board of Regents on Monday show Menzies has agreed to the deal. The board is set to discuss the agreement during a meeting on Friday.

Under the contract, which runs through 2021, Menzies is guaranteed $700,000 during each of the first three seasons and $800,000 for the final two.

Menzies, who has spent the last nine seasons as head coach at New Mexico State, took the position with UNLV on Saturday. He filled in for Chris Beard, who left Friday to coach at Texas Tech just a week after accepting the UNLV job.

Beard’s five-year deal with UNLV had been for nearly $5.8 million.
