UNLV coach Bobby Hauck will step down after coaching the team's season finale against Nevada on Saturday.

Athletic director Tina Kunzer-Murphy announced Friday that Hauck submitted his resignation, effective Monday.

"He and his staff have worked tirelessly in trying to achieve the results we all want to see but it unfortunately has not happened," Kunzer-Murphy said.

The Rebels are 2-10 and 15-48 in five seasons under Hauck, including 11-27 in the Mountain West Conference.

UNLV had three straight two-win seasons under Hauck before he led the Rebels to their first bowl appearance since 2000 last year, finishing 7-6.

Before being hired by UNLV after the 2009 season, Hauck was 80-17 at Montana in the FCS from 2003-09.

Hauck had two years left on his contract and will receive a buyout of $400,000.
