Coaching Change at Nevada Although he has not commented on any off-season changes, rumors have it that Nevada's coach nrg_qbz might be departing at the end of the season. Under his watch, Nevada finished last year as a ranked top-25 team for the first time in over 65 years. They also avenged their only loss that season by beating Cal the second time around in a bowl game. Playing with a new QB and HB this season, the Wolf Pack were supposed to be in rebuilding mode. However, coach nrg_qbz has rallied his troop to a 6-5 record despite starting the season 0-3. More significantly, Nevada has lost only one conference game during the last two seasons. The following teams seem to be vying for his services: UCLA: The Bruins have been going through a tough stretch and it is only a matter of time before Slick Rick is fired. Having lived in California for a few years, could coach nrg_qbz be making a return trip along the West Coast? Cal: Once again, the California connection has Cal in the running. The Bears are plenty familiar with coach nrg_qbz, as his Nevada squad dismantled them during last season's Holiday Bowl. Northwestern: Interestingly enough, Northwestern is somehow in contention to lure coach nrg_qbz away from Nevada. Always known as a scholar, the coach has a soft spot for fine educational institutions. Kentucky: The Wildcats seem to be the frontrunners at this point. Coach nrg_qbz has always been fond of the SEC. What better way to prove one's worth than to play in one of the toughest conferences in the country?
