LAS VEGAS — The Las Vegas Review-Journal is reporting that University of Montana head football coach Bobby Hauck will interview for the University of Nevada Las Vegas job on Sunday.
According to the report, Dennis Franchione will interview with new UNLV athletic director Jim Livengood on Monday.
Hauck, 80-16, coached the Grizzlies in the Football Championship Series national title game Friday night against Villanova.
Hauck, a native of Big Timber, has been the head coach at UM for seven seasons and has guided the Grizzlies to three title games.
Livengood was hired Thursday as Rebels athletic director.
Franchione previously coached at Texas A&M, New Mexico and Texas Christian. He currently works for ESPN Radio.
The Review-Journal said that a coaching hire will be made soon. Approval of the new coach’s contract is on the agenda for the board of regents’ special meeting Wednesday, though that item can be changed.
UNLV is seeking a new football coach after Mike Sanford was told he would not be rehired after this season.
