Chris Ault

Former Head Coach of University of Nevada, member of the College Football Hall of Fame and NFL consultant


Hi I’m Chris Ault former Head Football Coach for the University of Nevada. I’ve been asked to introduce myself for those of you who may not be familiar with my background.

I began my coaching career at the HS level where I coached for five years. Four of the five I was a head coach accumulating a 35-­‐3-­‐1 record, winning three conference titles and two state championships. The next three years I spent as an assistant coach at UNLV.

In 1976 I became the Head Football Coach at the University of Nevada, my alma mater. I was 29 at the time and would spend the next 37 years as a coach and administrator at Nevada. I coached football for 28 seasons and was the Director of Athletics for 18, nine of which I wore both hats. We built the program from the ground floor up going from Division-­‐II in 1976, 1-­‐AA in 1978, 1-­‐A (FBS today) in 1992.

As we grew we also had conference affiliations with the Big Sky, Big West, WAC and MWC conferences. Over time Wolf Pack football would become a relevant nationally recognized program and the flagship sport at Nevada. Being a former QB I worked extensively on the offensive side of the ball.

Over my collegiate coaching career I ran the Wing-­‐T and 1-­‐back spread. Both of these schemes were major contributors in my development of the Pistol, which would become our signature and most dominant offense. Statistically speaking, through the years we produced conference leading and nationally ranked offenses while rewriting just about every individual and team record at Nevada.
