Hauck Completes Staff
Jan. 13, 2010
LAS VEGAS - New football head coach Bobby Hauck on Wednesday completed his first UNLV staff by announcing the hiring of Michael Gray as defensive tackles coach and Mike Gerber as strength and conditioning coach.
A veteran of the Pac-10 and SEC, Gray becomes the program's ninth and final full-time assistant coach for 2010. He most recently spent four seasons coaching the defensive line at his alma mater, the University of Oregon, from 2005-08. He joined to the Ducks after coaching two years at the University of Kentucky (2003-04). That was preceded by a six-year stint at Oregon State (1997-2002) during which the Beavers played in three bowl games, including the team's 41-9 rout of Notre Dame in the Fiesta Bowl.
Gray spent some time in the NFL as part of the staff of the Los Angeles Rams (1996), a year at Weber State (1995) and got his first coaching job with the Canadian Football League's British Columbia Lions (1993-94). The Baltimore, Md., native played two seasons at Oregon (1981-82) before turning in an eight-year career (1985-92) playing in the CFL for B.C. and Winnipeg, including a trio of Grey Cup Championship squads.
Gerber just finished his fourth season as the University of Montana's strength coach in charge of football. He joined the Grizzlies after being in private business in New York as owner of Mike Gerber Sport-Strength and co-owner and president of Strength in Motion. The University of Maine graduate served as the head strength and conditioning coach at Syracuse University from 1995-2000 after also making stops at the University of Maryland, Yale University and Middlebury College.
