UNLV basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian said he will step down during the postseason next year and forego any revenues from the tournament if the NCAA reverses itself and allows the Runnin' Rebels to defend their national championship.

Tarkanian said he made the decision July 23, three days after the NCAA handed down its penalty that would prohibit UNLV from postseason play in 1991. He said he offered the concession when he met with university officials following the announcement of the penalty.
