New UNLV football coach Bobby Hauck is bringing a new brand of discipline and planning to the Rebels after seven successful years at Montana, who played in three national title games in the former I-AA. Anything close to that kind of success in the Mountain West Conference might make Rebels fans happy. But the very private Hauck is much more than an accomplished football coach.
