Although quiet by nature, Fred Harvey's accomplishments speak loud and clear. From humble beginnings as a paper boy, Nevada's rifle coach has come a long way.

Harvey was Named Coach of the Year in 2003 by the Collegiate Rifle Coaches Association. He led Nevada to a fourth-place finish in the NCAA Championship Tournament in 2003, and followed that up with a second-place finish in 2004, the Wolf Pack's highest finish ever.

Rifle is the only NCAA sport to have men and women compete against one another directly, and Coach Harvey has no problems finding qualified candidates from both genders. Fred has coached 24 All-Americans in his 16-year career at Nevada. Ryan Tanoue won the 2002 NCAA Individual Air Rifle title.

"Coach (Harvey) is the reason I chose Nevada," All-American Meghan Morrill said. "He and I just clicked; he is a true player's coach."

Coach Harvey's resume is quite impressive, having earned his bachelor's degree in National Security and Public Affairs from the United States Military Academy at West Point. Harvey earned a master's degree in Procurement and Materials Management from Webster University. He also graduated from the British Army Staff College as well as the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College with honors (Master's Equivalent).

Along with his coaching duties, Harvey serves as a Supervisory Buyer for the Nevada System of Higher Education's Business Center North and was a professor of Military Science at the University of Nevada.

Harvey is married to wife Sheri, and they have two daughters, Sarah and DeAdre.

Harvey's favorite anecdote: "If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there."

He began coaching the Wolf Pack in the 1995-96 season.
