First-year Athletic Director David Matlin has announced that Chris Naeole will be the interim head coach to finish out the season. The Hawai’ian born Naeole has been serving as the Rainbow Warriors offensive line coach before his promotion.
“I’d like to thank Coach Chow for his dedication to our football program for the past four years,” Matlin said in a prepared statement. “Ultimately, we feel this decision is in the best interest of the university and athletic department and we need to move in a different direction.
“Coach Chow should be commended for helping our football program achieve all-time highs in APR scores and graduation rates.”
Chow, who is 69-years-old and closer to retirement, went 10-36 overall, and 4-25 in the Mountain West Conference. This season, under Chow, the team is 0-5 in the Mountain West.
Last season, the team went 3-9 overall and 1-7 in the Mountain West Conference. In 2013, the team was 1-11 and 0-8 within the conference.
His best season came in 2012, his first-year with the team, when the team went 4-9 overall and 3-5 within the MWC.
The UCLA Bruins was his next stop as offensive coordinator from 2008 through 2010, before returning to Utah in 2011 as its offensive coordinator. The Rainbow Warriors gig was his first collegiate head coaching coaching job.
