Hufnagel resigned a day before the results of a review were to be released and amid an outcry over the university's handling of sexual harassment claims against high-profile officials. The school gave Hufnagel a termination notice last month.

The university launched the inquiry into Hufnagel last year after the female journalist covering the team sent head coach Cuonzo Martin a long email describing in graphic detail unwelcome advances from the assistant.

Hufnagel spent the 2013-14 season as Vanderbilt's recruiting coordinator and previously was an assistant coach at Harvard.

"I met Yann nearly a decade ago and his track record as an assistant at three high caliber academic institutions speaks for itself," Nevada coach Eric Musselman said. "He's a high energy coach and recruiter, and we're happy to have him in our program."
