Wolf Pack's New Football Coach In Reno Today

Posted: Updated:

It's not an "official" deal until Friday when the Board of Regents are expected to approve Brian Polian's contract as Nevada's new head coach.

But that's really considered a formality at this point - and Polian was up at the university today.

The former Texas A&M special teams coordinator and tight ends coach met with his assistants, yes, the majority of the same ones Coach Chris Ault had are still under contract.

As I said, Polian's not "officially" the Wolf Pack's new head football coach until Friday when the Board of Regents are expected to approve his new 5-year deal, worth a base of $475,000 per season.

But today was our first chance to find out if he's an offensive guys or a defensive guy - he's coach on both sides of the ball and was linebacker in college.

 

After 5-seasons in South Bend, Polian spent a couple at Stanford before heading to Texas A&M.

The 38-year old's father was a long time NFL executive.

In 16 seasons, Polian had stops at Buffalo and Central Florida before getting hired at Notre Dame and really began to make his mark as a super recruiter.
