Personally, having Head Griz Football Coach Bobby Hauck back in Big Sky country is like a breath of fresh air. And he sure hasn't wasted any time since he's been home, recruiting and making big moves in order to prep for the upcoming season.

I've got a special connection to Coach Hauck because he coached both my older brothers, and was one of the main reasons I decided to go to school at the University of Montana. His respected coaching style, with it's winning record and well recruited players, is what made going to football games in the blistering heat and freezing cold 100% worth it! Games like the Appalachian State playoff football game, with the snow storm and PACKED Washington-Grizzly stadium, that's a night no Griz fan will ever forget...

So I don't know about you, but I'm beyond excited to see what kind of magic Coach Hauck can come up with this year! Like always, we'll be rooting for him and our Griz!
