Bobby Hauck Returning As UNLV Football Coach

From the LVRJ: Until now, Bobby Hauck has been given time to gradually build UNLV's football program.
The building phase is officially over.
Hauck and athletic director Jim Livengood said Tuesday they expect the Rebels to win at least six games next season and become bowl eligible for the first time since 2000.
Falling short of that mark doesn't necessarily mean a coaching change - "I don't believe in going with a hard line," Livengood said - but Hauck certainly hopes he doesn't have to find out.
"I would say in my mind, we probably need to be bowl eligible next year," Hauck said. "I think that's fair."
Getting to six victories won't be easy for a program that has ended with two wins in each of the past three seasons and seven of nine.  http://www.lvrj.com/sports/hauck-livengood-expect-significant-improvement-next-season-181120171.html
My guess is that if they fired Hauck, they could not find anyone better than him.   Further, a new person  would be willing to come to a program that pretty much sucks because of poor training facilities, a so-so stadium, a horrible fan base and a poor recruiting pool in Las Vegas.
So, welcome back to hell, Coach Hauck.
