The Hawai’i Rainbow Warriors have turned to their past for their new head coach. The school announced on Saturday that they have hired Timmy Chang to lead their football program.

Chang gets the job after June Jones declined the opportunity. Jones said that he wanted the job; however, the administration only offered him a two-year deal and wanted control over his coaching hires.

He returns to Hawai’i after spending several weeks as the Colorado State Rams wide receivers coach. He did not coach a game with the Rams, as he was hired by the school following the 2021 season.

Chang is taking over a program that had some controversy in recent weeks. More than 20 players from the Rainbow Warriors had entered the transfer portal.

After several weeks of dealing with allegations in the program, former head coach Todd Graham resigned on Jan. 15th.

The 40-year-old Chang spent the 2021 season on Jay Norvell’s coaching staff at Nevada. Norvell was hired to be the Rams head coach following the 2021 season.

Chang had been with the Wolf Pack since the 2017 season. He was the team’s inside wide receivers coach, tight ends coach, and wide receivers coach during this time.

Before joining the Wolf Pack, Chang was the Emory & Henry Wasps offensive coordinator in 2016. He also was the Jackson State Tigers offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2014 and 2015.

His first coaching opportunity came in 2012. He was hired as the SMU Mustangs graduate assistant in 2012 and 2013.

Chang played for the Rainbow Warriors from 2000 through 2004. He went 1,338 of 2,436 for 17,072 yards. The Hawai’i native had 117 touchdown passes and 80 interceptions.
