Norm Chow is back on the sidelines calling plays

Longtime college assistant Norm Chow has been named the offensive coordinator for the Los Angeles XFL franchise.

The team officially announced the move today (see tweet below).

Chow, who last coached in college football as the head coach at Hawaii from 2012-115 and has also served as offensive coordinator at BYU, NC State, USC, UCLA, Utah, and with the Tennessee Titans for a few years as well.

At BYU, Chow worked under the legendary LaVell Edwards and coached Steve Young and Jim McMahon, and at NC State he mentored Phillip Rivers among a host of other great players at each stop, but his time at USC under Pete Carroll is perhaps what he is best known for as he worked with guys like Carson Palmer, Matt Leinart and Reggie Bush - all of whom went on to win Heisman Trophies.

Chow is the latest former great college coordinator-turned-XFL addition alongside fellow former outstanding play callers in Hal Mumme and June Jones.
