Good Commentary on Chris Ault from Helmet Stickers.

Helmet Stickers: Chris Ault: Chris Ault announced he was retiring today after 28 years as the head coach at Nevada. It is not clear if Ault has been planning on retiring...

Good op-ed about a good coach. The one thing that is glaringly obvious about Ault is that he never jumped ship at the first opportunity to make a more money. Professionalism and class is what the college football world has seen with this man. I hate to see him go.

Let us compare him to a whole host of others in the college football ranks. A whole slew of the classless, mercenary, coaches in the colleges ranks are not fit to carry his laundry to the cleaners and that would include both head coaches that will be leading teams in the  BCS "National Championship" game.

Well, on a small scale Rocky Long might deserve some small credit. He's done a nice job at SDSU and some bigger schools began showing interest in talking to him. He immediately made it known that SDSU is his home for the duration. Not in the Ault league, but we appreciated his attitude.

I am glad that Long chose to stay at SDSU. More often than not when a coach leaves for "greener pastures" it backfires on them. We will see where Brady Hoke is in a couple of years.
