Hauck Shuffles His Coaching Staff

Rebels will have new coordinators on both sides of the ball in 2012.

Rob Phenicie (pronounced "FEN-ah-see") is in his fifth year on the UNLV staff and his second season overseeing tight ends as well as serving as associate head coach for academics. During his first three years on campus, he tutored UNLV's quarterbacks during what is actually his second stint at the school, as he spent one year assisting John Robinson's first Rebel staff in 1999. He also served as UNLV's offensive coordinator in 2010-11 after coming to Las Vegas from the University of Montana.

Previously, Phenicie spent three seasons coaching at MW member Wyoming from 2000-02. He oversaw the Cowboys' receivers and was the program's recruiting coordinator in 2001 before becoming co-offensive coordinator for one campaign. He was also offensive coordinator at Cal State Northridge from 1997-98.

Phenicie started his playing career at Nebraska as a tight end in 1984, then transferred to Orange Coast College for a year before transferring to the University of Memphis, where he completed his playing career. He earned his bachelor's degree in sociology from Memphis in 1989 and his master's degree in athletic administration from there as well in 1991.

Phenicie and his wife, Jennifer, have a daughter, Meghen.
