Bobby Hauck returning home...

News out of UNLV is that AD Jim Livengood is retiring on June 30. Not that there wasn't already a lot of pressure on Bobby Hauck to win now, that only figures to up the ante so to speak. Have another 2-win season and odds are the new AD (depending on who it is) would likely let Bobby and the staff go. He signed a two-year extension through 2014, so it would cost about $350K to buy him out if that is what ultimately were to happen.

Hmmm, seems to me that UM might have a coaching vacancy at the end of this season.

Of course, odds of all of this happening are slim-to-none, but as Lloyd Christmas once said... "So you're saying there's a chance?!?!?!"
 
I'm not totally sure how I would feel about Hauck returning... he's a proven winner, but I think some of the cultural problems in Griz football can be attributed to his leadership.

I feel the same. Dude was a great coach, but I highly doubt Haslam or Engstrom would be okay hiring him again if he did apply.

Plus, he could probably make a lot more as an assistant in the Pac-12 or maybe even NFL.

I just don't see Hauck as coach of UM again any more plausible than Pflu being UM coach again.
 
Bobby wasn't a fan of the playoffs at all. I'd expect he would look to land a coordinator job somewhere in the Mountain West or Pac 12/Big 12 before he'd consider coming back to the FCS.

The chances of Bobby Hauck returning are about as slim as the chances of Tom Hauck returning...

There's a better chance of Pflu getting hired back than Bobby Hauck. :lol:

Disagree. Perhaps some of the problems might be attributed to him. Though the bulk of the problems are a direct result of the lack of strong leadership which followed Hauck.

I think it would be fair to say that each shares some culpability.
 
Is this a song?

Bobby is coming home ohh ...... Lord Bobby is coming home ohhhh .........my.

Not a chance. Alpha would veto this hire!

It's Grizzoola, thank you. I agree this will be a make or break season for BH. However, I believe he finally has the team he's been building for the last 3 years. I could not believe he lost to NAU, when at UM he beat them consistently, same coach, & all. But now, he has guys he brought in, matured under him, understand his system of football, have bought into it. Just like at UM.

I think UNLV's problem is not the coach: It's the UNLV culture, which is more invested in basketball. UNLV has brought in a variety of coaches, over the years, but UNLV"s record has not significantly improved. In fact, if BH blows this season, I'd suggest UNLV drop football entirely & concentrate on basketball, the program it and its fans truly love. If BH thought he could make a difference in that culture, he was mistaken. Live & learn.

As you all know, BH is a helluva hard-working coach, a good recruiter, altho some of you have questioned his game management. He's already got guys he developed invited to NFL spring camps. Altho I hate to say this, & many of you may disagree, but I do believe he brought in some talented but socially questionable kids at UM. At UNLV, when he came in, I'm sure Livengood put the kibosh on that. Witness the Ty Gregorak situation as an example. It could be or not be the reason for his lack of success, so far. I prefer to believe it is not.

I know you are a hack but seriously you lowered the bar with this post.

Even you should have been able to throw in more excuses in this post than you already did.........quit being half assed and do it right.
