I don’t have to say. Later in the week, I’ll take a shot at predicting the outcome.


Bobby Hauck named UNLV Football Coach

Hauck, who coached the University of Montana Grizzlies from 2003-2009, replaces Mike Sanford who was fired last November 16th.

Incoming UNLV coach Bobby Hauck says he’s excited about generating enthusiasm for football and building a winning program, but he doesn’t know how long it will take for his team to reach his goals.

Hauck said Wednesday as he was introduced by the university that enthusiasm for his team will come if it’s worth watching.

The Board of Regents was set to approve Hauck’s contract in an afternoon meeting.

UNLV President Neal Smatresk says the three-year contract will pay Hauck $350,000 annually, with some pay deferred and incentives for winning, bowl games and helping student-athletes graduate.

Anyone familar with the history of football at UNLV knows Hauck faces a difficult task in making the Rebels competitive. No UNLV football coach has ended his tenure at the school with a winning record in over 30 years.
