UNLV coach search: And then there were two

While we don’t know who will be UNLV’s next head coach, we do know there’s a very small pool of candidates on which to speculate.

In fact, there are just two candidates who will be interviewing for a position that’s been vacant for over a month, ever since Mike Sanford was dismissed in November.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Dennis Franchione and Bobby Hauck are the only two candidates under consideration by new athletic director Jim Livengood.

Hauck, the Montana head coach whose school lost in the Div. 1-AA championship game to Villanova Friday, was slated to interview on Sunday, while Franchione is scheduled to interview today.

A hiring could come as early as the middle of the week as the Review-Journal reports that approval of the new coach’s contract is on the agenda for the Board of Regents’ special meeting Wednesday.

    Dennis freaking Franchione?!? Are they insane??
    Coach Fran left ‘Bama in a hurry and at the time, I was pretty angry about that. After seeing how he sold information to people about his players, I think that UA was lucky to have him leave.
    Franchione is a moderately good coach but a lousy representative for any university. Bleck.
