Nevada, Polian agree to part ways after 4 seasons, 23 wins

RENO, Nevada (AP) Nevada and coach Brian Polian agreed to part ways Sunday after four seasons in which the Wolf Pack never broke .500 in Mountain West games.

Polian, the son of former NFL executive and Pro Football Hall of Famer Bill Polian, was 23-27 since replacing Hall of Fame coach Chris Ault. Ault retired after the 2012 season.

A former assistant at Notre Dame, Stanford and Texas A&M, Polian wasn't able to recreate the success the Wolf Pack had under Ault. Polian guided Nevada to bowl games and 7-6 seasons in years two and three.
