Mike Gundy will turn to Steve Hauser to lead Cowboys special team

Steve Hauser, who spent the 2013 season as a graduate assistant at Oklahoma State, will reportedly return as special teams coordinator and offensive graduate assistant.

Multiple reports including a notice on Football Scoop and a confirmation on his Twitter account indicate that former Cowboys quality control coach Steve Hauser is coming back to Oklahoma State as a graduate assistant coach and will take the role recently vacated by Robbie Discher as special teams coordinator and offensive graduate assistant.

Most recently, Hauser was in his second stint with the Cleveland Browns working in personnel. He had previously interned with the football equipment staff before coming to Oklahoma State. He has also coached tight ends and fullbacks at Mount Ida College.

Hauser worked with the Oklahoma State staff during the 2013 season and is pictured in the 2013 Oklahoma State Football Media Guide as a quality control coach on the offensive side. He worked with offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich. 

Hauser played collegiately at small religious-based college Wesleyan University in Middleton, Conn., where he was a wide receiver that in his best season as a junior caught 20 passes for 194 yards and two touchdowns. His senior season he only played in one game and had one reception for 21 yards. He graduated high school from Burrillville High School in Harrisville, Rhode Island. 

No word on when he will join the Cowboys program but it could be as soon as this week as a graduate assistant spot is open with the departure of Discher.
