Former UH quarterback and offensive coordinator Nick Rolovich yesterday signed a contract to be Nevada’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.
Rolovich, who was not retained at UH after Norm Chow was hired as head coach, has worked the past month at UMass. But Rolovich, who is still under UH contract through March 31, never did sign a contract with UMass and was there on a “volunteer” basis.
Rolovich has a two-year contract with Nevada (UH limits assistants’ contracts to one year) and a significant raise from what he would have earned at UMass.
Rolovich traveled to Reno from Massachusetts yesterday, and signed last night. Nevada also hired an offensive line coach. There is one more vacancy on that staff, for a running backs coach. (C’mon, Nevada, Brian Smith is available.)
No word yet from Mouse Davis on Rolovich working for Chris Ault.
