Salary details and other information about his contract aren’t known at this time. He made a base salary of $825,000 this past season with the Ducks.
There’s a chance UNLV matches that, but there’s also a very real chance they fall short.

To be honest with all of you, I don’t know a ton about Arroyo. I don’t know much at all, in fact. Oregon has been very good these past few years, and Justin Herbert is going to be one of the first quarterbacks taken.
How much of that is due to Arroyo? I honestly can’t say. Clearly, UNLV thinks he played a big role in the success.
I wish him nothing but success going forward, but I hope the Ducks fall apart on offense without him. Nothing would make me smile more.
RAPID REACTION: Wisconsin will play Oregon in the Rose Bowl. The Badgers are headed to “The Granddaddy of Them All.”
Everybody wanted to count out Wisconsin after we lost to Ohio State. Now, we’re on the biggest stage in college football. Pasadena, here we come. pic.twitter.com/RyFb8PLIkw

Even if he did take a bit of a pay cut, it’s probably worth it to become a head coach in Las Vegas.
