recently he was followed on Twitter by Dave Matlin. Also supposedly had a meeting with players earlier today. Being reported he’s the QB and OC.

Huh. 31 years old. Three years coaching experience. Graduate assistant, offensive analyst, "offensive special projects". Now will oversee UH offensively. Quite the jump.

He will likely bring in a similar Offense to that which was run by Chad Morris

They are just reporting what Rittenberg said. Not much confirmation from their own sources

Same with Tsai (but he likely knew already lol) https://twitter.com/stephentsai/status/1223382499411124224

True, but at this stage of the year, most of the other coaches have jobs. Maybe the pickings were slim but he may work out just fine.

Not sure if he's a good coach or not, but I remember him being the QB at Tulsa who smashed us in the Hawaii Bowl. So, there's that.

Looks like coach Graham is bringing his friends in. I just hope they have the local connection in bringing recruits.

Yeah kinda like Chow type hires. But the pickings are slim.
Not doubting, not hating, not loving, just hoping because I am a fan.

Wyoming kicked our butts!

Well hoped a lot haschanged with Kinney for his play calling. He was young when called he the plays for smu in the Frisco bowl in 2017 and the offense rushed the ball well but well but the passing sucked. Smu also got blown out 51-10. He has to know hawaii needs a high scoring offense that constantly puts pressure on the defense and creates mismatches to be successful.

June, Mack and Rolo also hired friends and former coaches who worked with them

A flattering article from a writer for the Philadelphia Eagles.
https://www.bleedinggreennation.com/202 ... l-nfl-news
What Graham is doing is hiring people that he knows and believes they will help UH win. Graham has be able to get along with his assistants and part of a team. He didn't hire an offensive lineman to be offensive coordinator nor did he bring in a slot receiver to coach the quarterbacks. What I think they need in a hurry is a strength and conditioning coach so the athletes will develop some endurance over the off season.

Not much different from when Rolo was hired by McMackin.
