UNLV Head Coach Bobby Hauck to resign

LAS VEGAS -- UNLV Head Coach Bobby Hauck is set to resign, according to UNLV Athletics Director, Tina Kunzer-Murphy.

In a press release, Kunzer-Murphy said Hauck will resign his position after coaching the team in Saturday's season-ending game against Nevada, Reno. That game will be held at Sam Boyd Stadium.

“Bobby Hauck submitted his resignation, effective Monday, and I have accepted it,” Kunzer-Murphy said. “No one has worked harder in trying to achieve consistent success with our football program than Coach Hauck and we thank him for his dedication and leadership. He and his staff have worked tirelessly in trying to achieve the results we all want to see but it unfortunately has not happened. We wish Bobby and his family the very best in their future endeavors,” Kunzer-Murphy said in a statement.

Hauck, who had two years left on his contract, will receive a one-time payment of $400,000 to complete the University's financial obligations.  

Hauck is finishing his fifth year at UNLV and his 12th overall as a head coach. The soon to be former head coach has a record of 15-48 with the Rebels, including 11-27 in the Mountain West Conference.

The 2014 Rebels go into Saturday's finale with a record of 2-10 overall and 1-6 in league play.

“We were given an opportunity to get it done here at UNLV and we simply did not win enough games,” Hauck said. “It's my responsibility to push the program forward and I wish we would have produced better results.

Hauck went on to say: “I would like to thank our University leadership for their support of our program; in particular, President Don Snyder, Athletics Director Tina Kunzer-Murphy and Board of Regents Chair Kevin Page. In addition, I would like to thank our student body, alumni and community leaders for their support of Rebel Football.”

Hauck's resignation will be effective Monday.
