Chris Ault (born November 8, 1946 in San Bernardino, Californiamarker), is the current college football head coach of the University of Nevadamarker Wolf Pack. Ault, along with Joe Paterno, Bobby Bowden, and John Gagliardi, is one of four active coaches who have also been inducted in to the College Football Hall of Famemarker.

Ault won his 200th game October 9, 2009 when his Wolf Pack beat Louisiana Tech, 37–14.

The most successful coach in Wolf Pack history, Ault is one of six active Football Bowl Subdivision coaches to reach 200 wins, which include Penn State’s Joe Paterno, Florida State’s Bobby Bowden, Virginia Tech’s Frank Beamer, Ohio State’s Jim Tressel and Texas’ Mack Brown. He engineered the greatest comeback in NCAA Division I-AA history, when he erased a 35 point deficit to defeat Weber Statemarker in 1991. He has a reputation for making effective half-time adjustments, as he has engineered 25 second-half comeback victories.

Ault also served as the athletic director for the Wolf Pack but relinquished those duties upon re-assuming the head coaching job for his third stint in that position in the spring of 2004. The first was 1976–92 and the second was 1994–95. Ault, as the athletic director, was the one responsible for the termination of head coach Chris Tormey, and then named himself as the replacement three days later. A member of the university's faculty senate expressed concern at the perceived conflict of interest, especially since the salary of the head football coach exceeds that of athletic director.

Ault is the creator of the Pistol Offense. He installed at Nevada during his third period as head coach, and it has since been adopted by other teams. Among the quarterbacks who have thrived under Ault's guidance are Eric Beavers, Chris Vargas, Jeff Rowe and Colin Kaepernick.

Ault graduated from Nevada with a bachelor's degree in Education in 1968 and went on to complete an MBA in 1971. He is married to Kathy Ault, and has three children: Lisa, Chris Jr., and Amy.
