Texas A&M assistant Polian next Nevada coach

RENO, Nev. (AP) - Nevada athletic officials say they have reached an agreement with Texas A&M assistant Brian Polian to become the Wolf Pack's next football coach.

Nevada President Marc Johnson and athletic director Cary Groth said in a statement Monday that the deal is subject to approval later this week by the state Board of Regents. But they say they agree Polian is the man to replace longtime Nevada coach Chris Ault, who announced his retirement last month.

The 38-year-old Polian was special teams coordinator and tight ends coach last season at Texas A&M. He also has coached at Stanford, Notre Dame, Central Florida and Buffalo.

Johnson says they agreed to a 5-year deal that will pay $475,000 annually plus incentives. School officials say they anticipate the regents will approve the contract.
