Former UNLV baseball coach Tim Chambers has died, a spokesman for the university confirmed.

Chambers, who coached the Rebels for five seasons from 2011 to 2015, was 54 years old.

Athletic department spokesman Andy Grossman said no other details were available regarding his passing.

UNLV had a 157-132 overall record under Chambers, with a regular-season conference championship and berth in the NCAA regional tournament in 2014.

He took a leave of absence in the summer of 2015 due to an ongoing back ailment.

Chambers was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence that October, and the university announced two months later that he had resigned as head coach.

Before leading the Rebels, Chambers was the head coach of the Southern Nevada Coyotes for 11 seasons, during which time he coached Bryce Harper. He also coached the baseball team at Bishop Gorman High School.
