Nevada's head coach Chris Ault is retiring, a source told a CBSSports.com reporter Friday.

The Godfather of the Pistol Offense steps down after 28 seasons as a head coach, with a career record of 233-109-1. Ault led the Pack to five consecutive winning seasons and only one losing season of conference play since 1982.

Ault is best known for his impact on college football, credited as the inventor of the Pistol offense that has spread all over college football and even made its way to the NFL this fall. Despite the popularity of the offense, opponents still struggled against Nevada; in the past four seasons, the Pack has ranked in the top 10 nationally for offense.

Ault, a former Nevada QB, was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame earlier this year.
