West Las Vegas didn’t have to look far to find its next head football coach.
Robert Alarcon, a veteran Dons football assistant and the coach of the WLV middle school team, was named to the job this week and will succeed his former boss, Mike Ulibarri.
West Las Vegas Schools Superintendent Ruben Cordova confirmed the hire on Monday afternoon.
“I had four names recommended to me,” Cordova said. “I interviewed all four, and based on their responses, I made the decision to go with Robert.”
