UNLV has been a member of the Mountain West Conference since 1990.As the landscape of intercollegiate athletics continues to change, ensuring UNLV is properly positioned and is a member of a conference that is the best fit for our university and community remains part of our long-term vision, the statement said. We remain committed to fulfilling our responsibility to be a strong and successful member of the Mountain West.Its not yet clear if any other schools have received similar notification from the league, which announced July 19 that its presidents had authorized Bowlsby to begin evaluating schools for possible expansion of the 10-team conference by two or four members.The conference has not commented publicly on its plans nor has it committed to adding schools.Bowlsby has put no timetable on the Big 12s decision, though he has said the conference would like to move quickly and not interfere with the football season. The presidents meet again in early October.
