The Hawai’i Rainbow Warriors have hired Nevada Wolfpack offensive coordinate Nick Rolovich as its new head coach. He’ll be introduced on Monday, November 30th.

He’s no stranger to the program, as he was a former quarterback and assistant coach at the school.

“I’m pleased to welcome back Nick Rolovich to the UH ohana,” Athletic Director David Matlin said. “Nick is a Warrior at heart and someone I know our fans will support. He understands what it means to be a Warrior having played and coached here and what affect a winning programs with this community. I have no doubt we picked the right man for this job. The future is bright for Hawai’i football.”

Rolovich takes over for Norm Chow, who was fired at the beginning of November. Later today, the 2-10 Rainbow Warriors face off against the 1-10 Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks in the final game of the season under interim head coach Chris Naeole at Hawaiian Airlines Field at Aloha Stadium.

Chow went 10-36 in four seasons with the team. However, they never won more than four games under him and hasn’t gone to a bowl game since 2010.

He was a quarterback for the team in 2000 and 2001. He then coached on Greg McMackin’s coaching staff from 2008-2011. The final three years, he was the team’s offensive coordinator.

“Being raised a Warrior, there is a great sense of excitement and responsibility about bringing back a winning tradition to Hawai’i football,” Rolovich added. “I can’t wait to get started. I’m honored to be selected to run this program, which has made me into the man I am today.

With the Wolfpack, he’s been the team’s offensive coordinator for the past four seasons under head coach Brian Polian. He’ll coach his final game with the Wolfpack at the San Diego Aztecs in a few hours.
