A local product and University of Nevada graduate, Alec Drudi enters his second season on Nevada’s coaching staff and his first as the Wolf Pack’s offensive graduate assistant.
Drudi served as Nevada’s special teams quality control coach during the 2015 season, which culminated with a victory in the Arizona Bowl. Drudi helped analyze game film and prepare the Wolf Pack’s special teams units. The Wolf Pack boasted some of the best special teams play in the Mountain West last season, ranking second in punt return average and fourth in kick return average, while junior PK Brent Zuzo made 17-of-19 field goals and earned All-MW accolades.
Prior to Nevada, Drudi coached in the high school ranks. Drudi most recently worked as an assistant head coach and defensive coordinator for North Valley’s varsity team in 2014. He also served as a defensive coordinator for multiple seasons at his alma mater, McQueen High School.
Drudi was a multi-position starter at McQueen, playing as a defensive back, wide receiver and quarterback during his high school career. Drudi then graduated from the University of Nevada in 2013 with a bachelor’s degree in psychology.
