Chris Ault, head football coach of the Nevada Wolfpack, is retiring after 28 seasons as the team’s head coach. Not only will he go down as one of the greats to ever roam the sidelines of college football, but he is also credited as being the inventor of the Pistol Offense.
Ault is stepping down after nearly three decades leading the Wolfpack, accumulating a record of 233-109-1. Ault led the Pack to five consecutive winning seasons and only one losing season of conference play since 1982 as well as an appearance in this season’s New Mexico Bowl. Unfortunately for Ault and the Wolfpack, they could not hold a late lead and lost the game to the Arizona Wildcats, 49-48.
