Chris Ault (1965-67, 76-Present/ Football, Footbal Coach, A.D.)





Chris Ault, in a surprise announcement in June 1992, relinquished the reins of the Wolf Pack football program, to which he had held tightly for 17 seasons. He stayed with Nevada becoming the Wolf Pack athletic director. Ault was the most successful coach in the school’s history, recording 145 wins against just 58 losses, 105 more wins than any coach in the school’s history. He did it with the best winning percentage (.713) of any Nevada coach except for the first back in 1898, and that was a one-season tenure. Ault guided his team to national prominence, winning four Big Sky Conference championships and taking his team to the 1AA Playoffs seven times. He added a Big West Conference Championship to his trophy case in 1992, the first year the team moved up to Division 1A and joined the conferencesomething no team in NCAA history had done. He was Big Sky Conference Coach of the Year’ four times and national 1AA Coach of the Year twice (1978 and 1991).
