"I hate to see him go but hey, he talks to money, is not he?" Said Ron Semenko, who has been the owner of the season card since the Lawlor Events Center was opened in 1983. Semenko was on campus in Pecca Park to watch the Wolf Pack Baseball. the team of the San Diego State.

Scott Seamons, the father of Nevada outfielder Nick Seamon, said: "It's really sad to see, he has done so much for the program over the years. That will be a real loss for the team. But that is a great opportunity for him and I certainly understand him and I am happy for him and the rest of his family. "

Musselman, 54, has not stayed in one place for a long time. His four years with Nevada are his longest mandate on any of his coaching activities, including chief coaches with Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings, Reno Bighorns of D League and Assistant Coaches from Minnesota Timberwolves, Orlando Magic, Memphis Grizzlies and Atlanta Hawks .

He started to train at college level in 2012 as assistant coach with Arizona State and later LSU before taking over Nevada's job in 2015. He has won 110 games with Wolf Pack, winning or joining the Mountain West championship for the last three years,

"I want to thank Eric Musselman for four exciting seasons with the Wolf Pack package and the launch of the Nevada male basketball program at the top of the Mountain West conference," said Doug Knuth, head of athletics at Nevada. "We want Eric and Danyelle the best way forward.

"We will immediately launch a national search for the next leader of the male volleyball package and will not have further comments until it is completed."

"I'm worried that his departure could affect the status of some of our red shirts," said the long-awaited Seamons fan. "I hope Doug Knuth can provide someone with a good name."

Rex Walters is an obvious candidate for the next Nevada coach. He also joined the Wolf Pack employee before the start of the season 2018-1919. Former All American in Kansas and NBA player for 10 seasons, Walters has 10 years of experience with Division 1 Coaches in San Francisco and Florida Atlantic schools. He also trained for a year in the NBA D League with Grand Rapids.

"It's hard to see, but we'll go further and find someone else," Semenko said. "So far I've got used to all the noise."
