In his last game on Saturday, the Wolf Pack defeated the UNLV Rebels 45-10. Polian was 14-18 in the Mountain West Conference.

“I want to thank Brian and Laura Polian for their work on behalf of Wolf Pack athletics and our community over the last four years,” athletics director Doug Knuth said in a statement. “I am proud of our team and couldn’t be happier for the way they ended a tough season. The future is very bright for Wolf Pack football and I’m excited to watch and cheer for the team as they hunt for a championship in 2017.

“This decision is about finding a new head coach who will help us win a championship, and who will continue to build and strengthen relationships within our department, our campus, our alumni and our great community. The support from those constituencies is vital to the success of building a championship program. “I will have no additional comment on the transition or search for a new head coach.”

Polian is the son of National Football League Hall of Fame executive Bill Polian. This was his first heading coaching job.
