The Hawks failed to make the playoffs and Kruger was fired midway through the season. Kruger also held head coaching positions in collegiate basketball at the University of Texas-Pan American (1982-86), Kansas State University (1986-90), the University of Florida (1990-96), and the University of Illinois (1996-2000).

Kruger's son, Kevin, took advantage of a new NCAA rule, called Proposal 2005-54,[1] before the 2006-2007 season to transfer from Arizona State and immediately play for his father at UNLV without sitting out one year. The controversial rule has been repealed for the next season due to the "unintended consequences" of allowing players with undergraduate diplomas to immediately begin playing for another school without sitting out for any time.[2]
