Tennessee-Martin is expected to name UNLV assistant Heath Schroyer as its next head coach, multiple sources told CBSSports.com.

An official announcement is expected on Thursday.

Schroyer has been with the Runnin' Rebels since 2011 and was previously the head coach at Wyoming and Portland State. UT-Martin athletic director Julio Freire was at UNLV with Schroyer.

UNLV coach Dave Rice is targeting former Loyola Marymount head coach Max Good to be Schroyer's replacement, two other sources told CBSSports.com. Good was fired last week after serving as head coach of the Lions since 2008.

A major storyline to watch if Good winds up with the Runnin' Rebels is the status of top-100 recruit Elijah Stewart.

The 6-foot-5 Stewart signed to play for Good at Loyola Marymount, but has yet to receive a release from his letter of intent, another source told CBSSports.com.
