UNLV assistant Gregorak will not be retained

UNLV football assistant coach Ty Gregorak was formally charged with a felony count of trespass of an automobile with intent to commit a crime and a misdemeanor theft count by the Boulder, Colo., District Attorney's office in Boulder, Colo., on Thursday.

The news prompted UNLV athletic director Jim Livengood to tell Gregorak, 31, that he could resign or wait until his contract was up on June 30. According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Gregorak has not yet resigned.

Gregorak was arrested in Boulder, Colo., last Friday after police said he took a loaded handgun and wallet from a bouncer at a downtown strip club.

Gregorak was turned away from the Nitro Club on Boulder's Pearl Street Mall after bouncer Joseph Benedetto determined Gregorak was too intoxicated to enter the club. Gregorak went to the bouncer’s car in a nearby parking garage, broke into it and took a wallet from the center console and a loaded .45-caliber Glock 36 handgun from the glove compartment.

Later that day, Gregorak went to Benedetto’s home to return the stolen items and apologize. Benedetto accepted the apology but took down the license plate number of Gregorak’s rental car and called the police.

Gregorak, who is the Rebels’ linebackers coach and recruiting coordinator, is a former Colorado football player and was in town for personal reasons.
