UNLV has fired coach Marcus Arroyo, a source told ESPN's Pete Thamel on Monday.

The Rebels finished 5-7 this season, Arroyo's third as the school's head coach, after starting the season 4-1. UNLV defeated rival Nevada 27-22 on Saturday to snap a six-game losing streak.

The five wins represent the most UNLV has had in a season since 2017 when it also finished 5-7. UNLV's last season with a winning record came in 2013 when it finished 7-6.

Arroyo was 7-23 overall in his three seasons as the school's coach.

UNLV gave Arroyo the option to stay on and coach the bowl game, but Arroyo declined.
