The Reno Gazette-Journal reports (http://tinyurl.com/cm5maqu ) that Ault's agent, Bob LaMonte, confirmed the deal on Monday.
The 66-year-old Ault spent 28 years coaching and also served as athletic director at Nevada. He retired Dec. 28. He's best known as the architect of the innovative Pistol offense that became a mainstay at the college level and is making inroads in the NFL.
Ault will be joining the staff of Andy Reid, the new Chiefs coach formerly with the Philadelphia Eagles.
LaMonte also serves as Reid's agent.
Reid's new quarterback is Alex Smith, the former San Francisco 49er who last year lost his job to Ault's old quarterback at Nevada, Colin Kaepernick.
