Rolovich joins Nevada staff


[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

Former University of Hawaii offensive coordinator Nick Rolovich has been named the offensive coordinator at rival Nevada, the Wolf Pack announced today.

"I am pleased to have Nick join our staff. I’ve had the chance to watch him grow as a player, quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator," Nevada coach Chris Ault said in a release on the school’s website.

"He is a young gun who coached and coordinated the best passing offense in the country," Ault said." It was clear to me and my defensive staff this past year he is not afraid of change as he introduced the Pistol formation to the Hawaii offense. And they didn’t miss a beat."

Rolovich wasn’t retained when Norm Chow replaced Greg McMackin as UH’s head coach last month.

Nevada said Rolovich will serve as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach as the Wolf Pack moves into the Mountain West Conference with Hawaii and Fresno State.

He will coach Cody Fajardo, the WAC Freshman of the Year.

In the release Rolovich said, ""I am very excited to be part of a program that I am very familiar with and for which I have a lot of respect. It feels great to be at a school with a history of high offensive production and putting points on the scoreboard. I’m here to learn, teach and win. This is a great opportunity for me to learn from a guy with so much knowledge like Coach Ault and then to hopefully combine that with some things I’ve done in the past and continue to win here."

Rolovich was a quarterback for UH  in 2000-’01 and spent the last four season as an assistant coach with the Warriors.
