Rocky Long and the people in the football department there loved Bobby. Personal knowledge goes a long way. They had Bobby and Brady on staff there, and preferred Bobby.
Ouch, that doesn't speak too highly of Rocky Long. Bobby didn't exactly prove that he's a coaching genius with his stint at UNLV, and we all know his personality flaws. Rocky must have dirt on somebody. :lol:

Not that I think Bobby is some great coach, but has anybody done well at UNLV?

Why are there so many non griz fans have man crushes, get a tingling feeling or experience some erectile dysfunction towards the dear leader in missoula #-o

Clearly, no. UNLV is a coaching wasteland. But I still think that if you put someone, say Urban Meyer, over there, he'd find a way to build a successful program. Obviously (despite the fact that personally, I think he's kind of a dirtbag) there are very, very few coaches who are that level of good. But the program actually got worse while Hack was in charge, I think even if he had been marginally successful at improving their W-L record while he was there, it would have been a job well done. I think Hack does well in Missoula because of the advantages they have built in over there with their facilities, not because he's some great coach. Put him in Sacramento or Pocatello and I don't think he'd even sniff a .500 record.

I was curious about the SDSU rumor so I went to their fan forum. Basically one guy had a man crush on Hauck but even he thought Hauck was a better position coach than head coach😳🤷‍♂️ As for Rocky Long, sounds like he got into a passing match with admin over his choice of assistants. He finally got fed up with the BS and started to look for a Power 5 job as a DC while he was still head coach. Admin got word of his job search and let him go.

Regardless, I didn’t look real hard, but very little talk about Hauck. That is a decent job, good location, fertile recruiting base and they have plans for a new stadium. Hard to believe that any Big Sky coach would pass that opportunity. It is even harder to believe that SDSU would look at Hauck when a proven head coach was already on the staff as a coordinator.

I really hate defending Bobby, but he has the best single season record at UNLV since 2000. Things fell off, but he's still a good coach.

That's fair, I know you're not saying that to be argumentative or anything. I just will agree to disagree. I don't think he left UNLV in better shape than he found it, and overall I would actually say a little worse. I think he's good at coaching special teams, and generally at UM his teams play hard & tough (with the glaring exception of Cat/griz this year, shockingly), but otherwise I don't think he's anything special. Seeing him on the opposing sideline doesn't scare me in the least as a Bobcat fan. He's awful in dealing with the press and other duties that a head coach has to do, anyone that doesn't drool in his lap and bend over for him, he treats with contempt and outright disgust - and that's a pretty important job for a head coach. His W-L record outside of Washington-Bobcat Stadium is actually not great, especially since his return. I'd be pissed and embarrassed if he were the head coach at Montana State, and I think Coach Choate is 10x the coach and 100x the man that Bobby is.

We know him and his family a little due to the wife’s friendship with his sis. He’s actually really funny and seems pretty great when I’ve been around him (just a couple times). He gave me hell for being a Bobcat but not in a way I took offense. I think he’s a good coach. He delivered the best performance UM has had in a decade in just his 2nd year back. I think he is going to do well there again. I’d take Choate like someone else mentioned but i think both know what they are doing.

Don’t know Hauck and don’t know how to post pics but though all could enjoy this.

You probably have more class.

Ok. Didn’t work. Was a pic of the Walmart toilet paper section full of griz apparel
