Taking UNLV to the Heart of Dallas Bowl earned head head coach Bobby Hauck a three-year extension and a $200,000 raise to give him an annual salary of $700,000. The contract is being presented to the Nevada Board of regents special meeting on Jan. 25, and it is assumed to be just a formality.
Hauck's base salary from $150,000 to $250,000, media appearance fee from $150,000 to $225,000 and public appearance fee from $50,000 to $225,000. He also well earn a one-time payment of $150,000 on July 1, deferred money from last season. His assistants are also going to be getting a pay raise.
Getting UNLV to their first bowl game since 2000, Hauck could have been entitled to anything that the school would offer for achieving the rare feat.
