Hawaii - Staff Tracker

After a state senate hearing where Todd Graham's leadership style was very publicly called into question, Hawaii decided to part with the second-year coach in January of 2022.

The quest for his replacement played out very publicly, as June Jones publicly lobbied for the job before then publicly turning down the job a few days later in a bizarre turn of events.

Hawaii ultimately decided to bring back former start quarterback Timmy Chang to lead the team. Chang spent the past decade coaching college football "on the mainland," most recently as the receivers coach for Jay Norvell at Nevada and Colorado State.

Here, on the Hawaii Staff Tracker page, we lay out the new staff and also provide some perspective by noting who coached the position on the previous staff.
