Bobby Hauck, who was the winningest coach in Division I FCS, was hired as the 10th head coach in Rebel football history on Dec. 23, 2009.

Hauck (pronounced HOWK) immediately got to work building the UNLV program and guided his new school through some of the toughest schedules in program history. After UNLV posted a trio of two-win campaigns, all of Hauck & Co.'s hard work in Las Vegas last year produced a team that won more games than those first three seasons combined. In fact, the 2013 Rebels won five games in the Mountain West for the first time ever, hit the seven-victory mark for only the third time since 1984 and are appeared in the postseason for the first time since 2000 when they played on New Year's Day in the Heart of Dallas Bowl.

Before coming to the desert, Hauck had spent seven seasons as the record-setting head coach of the University of Montana where he compiled an overall record of 80-17, including leading the Grizzlies to three national championship games in the NCAA's Football Championship Subdivision (formerly I-AA). The winningest coach in Big Sky Conference history, Hauck earned at least a share of the league's title all seven years at Montana en route to compiling a record of 47-6.

Hauck, 49, was named Big Sky Coach of the Year in 2006, 2007 and 2009 and AFCA Regional FCS Coach of the Year in 2006 and 2009. He became the youngest head coach in modern Montana history when he was named to the post in 2002, and record-setting success soon followed as he compiled four more conference championships than anyone else in Grizzly history. A veteran of eight bowl games, Hauck also brought tremendous experience from stints coaching in both the Pacific-10 and Big 12 conferences. Previous to taking over his alma mater, he spent four years at the University of Washington (1999-2002) where he coached defensive backs and special teams and was considered one of the top recruiters in college football. Before that he was at the University of Colorado for four seasons (1995-98) where he was the special teams and recruiting coordinator while also coaching the safeties.

Before joining the Buffaloes, Hauck coached the outside linebackers and handled recruiting duties for Northern Arizona University (1993-94). He served as a graduate assistant at UCLA in 1990-91 and in 1992 served as the Bruins' on-campus recruiting coordinator. Hauck began his collegiate coaching career as a volunteer assistant for Montana in 1988-89, working with the secondary and then the inside linebackers. A native of the Treasure State, Hauck was a three-sport star at Sweet Grass High School in Big Timber, MT., and went on to twice letter in track and field at the University of Montana. His first coaching position was in 1987 as an assistant at his prep alma mater before joining the collegiate ranks.

Hauck, born on June 14, 1964, earned his bachelor's degree from Montana in 1987 and master's from UCLA in 1991. He and his wife, Stacey, have four children: daughters Sydney, Alexandra and Elise and son Robby. His late father, Robert Hauck Sr., coached high school football in the state of Montana for three decades and his brother, Tim Hauck, played 13 seasons as a defensive back in the NFL and joined UNLV as defensive coordinator last year after spending the previous season on the coaching staff of the Cleveland Browns.
