Polian Announces Changes to Wolf Pack Coaching Staff

Posted: Updated:

From the University of Nevada: 

Coming off a 28-23 victory over Colorado State in the NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl, Nevada head coach Brian Polian announced changes to the Wolf Pack coaching staff.

Polian announced Wednesday that associate head coach and wide receivers coach Jim Hofher has accepted a position at another school. Hofher was the interim offensive coordinator and play-caller during the bowl game victory.

“Coach Hofher has accepted a position at another university in a power-five conference,” Polian said. “Jim and I were communicating openly through the process and this move was not a surprise. We thank Jim for all of his work here at Nevada. On a personal level, he is longtime associate and mentor and Laura and I want nothing but the best for him and his family.”

Polian also announced that third-year offensive line coach Ron Hudson will not return to the Pack.

“Coach Hudson and I have mutually agreed to part ways,” Polian said. “We appreciate the effort that Ron has given here over the past three seasons. He has been a professional and a tireless worker. We also wish him and his family all the best moving forward.

“Our staff has undergone some changes today. While these things are very difficult, they are also an unfortunate reality of our business. As a head coach, I take these decisions very seriously and have spent a great deal of time considering them. The process of identifying the new coaches has been ongoing and when the hires are official, we will make an announcement. I have been excited about the interest that our jobs have generated and I have no doubt that we will add three quality men to our Wolf Pack Family.”

The University of Nevada will not have further comment on the hiring process until the process is completed.
