Jeff Tisdel (1974-77/ Football)


Tisdel was a Division II All-America selection as a junior in 1976 and a senior in 1977, Chris Ault’s first All-American. He set every school record in total offense and passing at the time, records that were only broken much later by Eric Beavers. Tisdel remained in second place on those records lists, including yards passing (6,098), touchdowns passing (59), completions (394), attempts (776), and total offense (6,050). In 1976 and ’77, the Wolf Pack was 16-6. In 1977 Tisdel was selected to play in the East-West Shrine game, the only Division II player selected that year, and the first UNR player to participate in that even for three decades. After graduation, Tisdel began his coaching career. He started his high school career at Fallon High school in 1979, and moved to Sacramento’s Christian Brothers High School from 1980-85. In 1985 he moved to the college ranks by accepting a position at St. Mary’s College in Moraga, CA. Then in 1987 he returned to UNR as the running backs coach.
