Hawaii #StaffTracker (2019-20)

Back on January 14th, Hawaii head coach Nick Rolovich was announced as the head coach at Washington State, where he would replace Mike Leach.

Rolo was coming off a 10-win season at Hawaii and had gone 28-27 overall in four seasons leading the program.

Hawaii vetted a number of quality candidates during their search that eventually led to the hire of former Rice, Tulsa, Pitt, and Arizona State head coach Todd Graham. Graham spent last few seasons away from the sideline since being let go in Tempe following their 2017 bowl loss.

Graham filled his staff with a number of guys he's worked with in the past, as well as some of his former players as well. Two defensive staff members were retained from Rolo's staff (Elimimian and Yoro).

On February 19th, Graham announced the official titles for his staff. See the chart for details, and we will add their salaries when they are made available.
