Washington State junior WR Kaleb Fossum transferred to Nevada.

In his Twitter announcement, Fossum indicated that he is transferring to Nevada for monetary reasons. He initially walked on at Washington State prior to the 2015 campaign. The 5-foot-10, 187-pounder's main contribution to the Cougars came in the return game. This past season, Fossum racked up 155 yards on 17 punt returns. His 9.1 YPR average was good for fourth in the Pac-12. In his shining moment for the 2016 campaign, he raced 75 yards for a punt-return touchdown against Cal in mid-November.

Alabama graduate QB David Cornwell transferred to Nevada.

Cornwell decided on a transfer in early December. He will have two years of eligibility remaining to his fair name come the start of the 2017 campaign. The 6-foot-5, 221-pounder was a four-star recruit in the 2014 class, but whiffed on opportunities to earn the starting job in 2015 and 2016, with Jacob Coker and Jalen Hurts beating him out, respectively. He did not attempt a pass during his three years at Alabama. With HC Jay Norvell and OC Matt Mumme in the fold and Cornwell transferring over, Nevada's offense could look starkly different in 2017 than it did under the now-terminated Brian Polian in 2016.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Nevada will hire LaGrange College HC Matt Mumme to serve as offensive coordinator.

Wolfpack HC Jay Norvell continues to build up his staff. Mumme has served as head honcho for LaGrange College (Division III) for three seasons. The Mumme name is a notable one, as Matt's father, Hal Mumme, helped create the Air Raid offense with current Washington State HC Mike Leach during the 90's. While this hiring hasn't been made official yet, the younger Mumme let the cat out of the bag somewhat when he tweeted that he felt "blessed by the new opportunity."

Former Texas and Arizona State position coach Jay Norvell will be the new head coach at Nevada, according to Football Scoop.

Norvell departed Texas prior to the season and joined Arizona State for one year. This is Norvell's first head coaching job at any level, but he has a wealth of offensive experience at big time college programs and in the NFL. Brian Polian went 23-27 in four seasons at Nevada.

Alabama redshirt sophomore David Cornwell will transfer.

Prior to last season, both ESPN and the Alabama-centric AL.com predicted that Cornwell would beat out Jake Coker to start for the Tide. That didn't happen, and Cornwell subsequently tumbled down the depth chart. Having already graduated from Alabama as a third-year soph, Cornwell is eligible to play immediately wherever he goes and has two years of eligibility remaining. A four-star 2014 recruit, Cornwell was ranked as the No. 4 pro-style QB in the country. Cornwell is the third Tide quarterback to transfer over the past few weeks, following Blake Barnett (committed to play at Arizona State) and Cooper Bateman (undecided). Last December, Tide QB Alec Morris transferred to North Texas. Looks like it's time for Nick Saban to go shopping for a few Jalen Hurts backups.

Nevada redshirt senior WR Hasaan Henderson (concussion) is questionable for Saturday's game against New Mexico.

While Henderson returned to the field on Saturday after missing two games, and while he had seven catches for 89 yards against Wyoming, he's been suffering with concussion after-effects. Head injuries tend to linger.

Nevada sophomore QB Ty Gangi will start for the remainder of the season.

With regular starter Tyler Stewart sidelined for the duration due to a shoulder injury, responsibility now falls to the 6-foot-2, 205-pound Gangi. In relief duty for Stewart against Wyoming on Saturday, he completed 27-of-43 passes for 300 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Those are fine numbers, but there is little fantasy intrigue, here.

Nevada redshirt senior QB Tyler Stewart is expected to miss the remainder of the 2016 due to a shoulder injury.

Stewart landed hard on his right shoulder after a scamper of 16 yards early in Saturday's loss to Wyoming. The resultant injury will require surgery and concurrently close the curtain on his Wolf Pack career. The 6-foot-4, 220-pounder finishes out having thrown for 3,550 yards (59% completions) with a 27/12 TD/INT ratio. In September, an NFL personnel executive deemed him to be the most underrated quarterbacking prospect in the 2017 draft class, so even with the shoulder injury finishing off his time at Nevada, his football journey still might have a ways to go. Sophomore Ty Gangi will start in his place for the remainder of this season.

Nevada and former Penn State redshirt senior RB Akeel Lynch decided to end his playing career after suffering two concussions in a short period of time.

Lynch transferred to Nevada this offseason after falling behind Saquon Barkley on the depth chart at Penn State. He missed four of six games this season due to the aforementioned head injuries.

An NFL personnel executive believes Nevada redshirt senior Tyler Stewart is the most underrated quarterback in college football.

"Stewart has good size and he's a decent athlete," the exec said. "He's more of a pocket guy. He wasn't a great fit for what they were doing last year. He needs some development but he's worth a pick." Stewart has a 5/1 TD/INT rate through four games but hasn't yet reached 190 yards passing.

Nevada redshirt senior RB Akeel Lynch (concussion) is expected to play in Saturday's game against Purdue.

A helmet-to-helmet hit laid Lynch low in Week 2's loss to Notre Dame and he subsequently sat out last weekend's showdown with Buffalo. Through one-plus contests this season, the 5-foot-11, 220-pound redshirt senior has carried the ball five times for 28 yards. There is no fantasy intrigue here.

Nevada redshirt senior RB Akeel Lynch (concussion) is questionable for Saturday's game against Buffalo.

Lynch was sidelined by a helmet-to-helmet hit in Saturday's loss to Notre Dame. He received just one carry for seven yards prior to being knocked out of the game. In the season-opener against Cal Poly he rushed for 21 yards on four carries. The 5-foot-11, 220-pounder transferred from Penn State to Nevada over the offseason.

Nevada junior RB James Butler rushed for 50 yards on 17 carries in Saturday's 39-10 loss to Notre Dame.

Butler averaged a paltry 2.9 YPC in the defeat, notching a long run of only 10 yards. The 5-foot-9, 200-pound junior is coming off a 2015 season in which he slashed his way to 1,345 yards rushing and 10 touchdowns. While he couldn't get things revved up on Saturday, Buffalo figures to allow him more generous running lanes next weekend.

Nevada sophomore QB Austin Kafentzis will transfer to a junior college.

This, according to Kafentzis' father, Kyle. "He thought it was best to take a step back, and then start the recruiting process over after this season. He’s worked harder than ever," the elder Kafentzis explained. "He’s got a smile on his face all of the time, and he just realizes this is his path." The 6-foot-1, 200-pounder initially joined Wisconsin as a three-star recruit in 2015, but transferred over to Nevada last summer after just one semester with the Badgers. He subsequently sat out the 2015 season due to transfer regulations.

Nevada redshirt sophomore LB Marc Ma is presumed dead following a paddle board accident.

Ma and several other Nevada players were out on a paddle board excursion at Lake Tahoe on Friday when they ran into high winds approximately 1.7 miles away from shore. The group had to turn around, but Ma was separated from the pack. Following a search-and-rescue effort, officials began to focus on recovery. Ma was not wearing a life jacket on the lake. In a statement, HC Brian Polian said, "We share in their devastation and will support them in any way we can. We are thankful for the courageous efforts of search personnel."
