LAS VEGAS (AP) — Legendary UNLV basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian is set to be honored by the Las Vegas City Council.

The Las Vegas Senior Citizens Advisory Board has named the 83-year-old Tarkanian the Senior of the Quarter.

His wife, Las Vegas City Councilwoman Lois Tarkanian, and son Danny are expected to accept the award on his behalf at a meeting Wednesday.

Tarkanian himself is not expected to attend.

He's a member of the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame and led three schools to the NCAA tournament, including the 1990 UNLV team that won a national title.
