Nick Rolovich to remain offensive coordinator for Nevada

USA TODAY Sports

Nick Rolovich took the offensive coordinator job at Temple over a week ago, but apparently had a change of mind.

The Pistol offense is looking like it will be staying in Nevada, as Nick Rolovich has changed his mind about taking the Temple offensive coordinator job just over a week ago.

The news that Rolovich switched course was first reported by Bryan Samudio of the NBC affiliate KRNV. The Reno Journal-Gazette also has multiple sources confirming that Rolovich will be back in Reno for the 2013 season.

The reasoning behind Rolovich is likely due to Nevada hiring Brian Polian away from Texas A&M to replace Chris Ault as head coach. Keeping Rolovich at Nevada is a big deal, because the Pistol offense is the equalizer that the Wolf Pack have against teams with more talent.

The one twist that Rolovich brings to the Pistol offense is the deep passing games, and that makes the Pistol offense even more difficult to defend. This is possibly the best news that Nevada could have, because Polian has never been a head coach. By keeping Rolovich around the school did not have to find an offensive coordinator late in the hiring process.

However, do not expect the 33-year-old coach to be an offensive coordinator for much longer, he could land a head coaching job within a few years.
