Dear Wolf Pack Fans,
As the new head coach of the Wolf Pack football program, let me first tell you how excited I am to be able to call the University of Nevada and Reno our new home.
I have been overwhelmed by the positive reaction that we have received since arriving and have discovered that Reno and our campus are two of the great hidden gems of the west.
After finally spending some quality time with our team I am encouraged by what we have seen. We have good young men in this program and they have embraced the changes that we have put in place. We are anxious to start spring practice and begin to build the foundation of the 2013 Wolf Pack football team.
I wanted to reach out to all of you personally to let you know that I take my role as head football coach very seriously. Our staff is going to help our student-athletes succeed in the classroom, on the field, and in the community. We are committed to building on the tradition we inherited and producing a team that will make you proud!
As we move forward, we are asking you to make a commitment to the program as well. We are in need of some help and we are appealing to members of the Nevada "Family" to consider making a donation that will aid us on our journey. I am asking you to support the football team with a minimum $25 gift to the "Gridiron Campaign".
To get where we all want to go - holding up a Mountain West Conference Championship trophy - is going to take a community wide effort. Contributions by alumni and friends of the program are critical for our success. Your gift can make a difference!
Thank you for your time and consideration. We look forward to seeing you back home here in Mackay Stadium this fall!
