Remembering Keith Loper

Former Wolf Pack coach Keith Loper passed away at his home in Reno on Tuesday. Loper coached baseball, football and wrestling while at the University of Nevada, including a stint as Nevada's head baseball coach from 1972-73. In fact, he gave current head baseball coach Gary Powers his first job as his assistant coach.

Jim Krajewski from the Reno Gazette-Journal wrote a nice tribute to the well-liked Loper.

Powers added this about his mentor: "Keith was one of the most wonderful, loyal, caring people I have had the pleasure to have been associated with. He was a great mentor and and I am so thankful to him for all of the support and guidance he provided to me." 

We will pass along any memorial service information we receive.
