A two-time National Coach of the Year and 2002 GCAA Hall of Fame inductee, Dwaine Knight has been the driving force behind the tremendous success of Rebel Golf since his arrival in Las Vegas in the fall of 1987.
Knight, who is in his 23rd season at the helm of the UNLV men's golf program, has nurtured Rebel golf from near-anonymity to one of the premier programs in the nation. In 1998, he guided the Rebels to their first-ever NCAA crown in Albuquerque, N.M.
Knight has taken the Rebels to an unprecedented 16 trips to the national finals and coached them to 12 top-15 finishes over a 15-year span. Under his tutelage, the Rebels earned their first-ever No. 1 ranking in 1993 and following the 1997-98 season, the team finished No. 1 in the nation in all polls.
