Nick Rolovich has been named Hawaii’s new head coach.
Rolovich was a record-setting quarterback for the Warriors in 2000-01 and was an offensive coordinator under former coach Greg McMackin. He's spent the past four seasons as Nevada's offensive coordinator.

"I'm pleased to welcome back Nick Rolovich to the UH ohana," athletic director David Matlin said in a statement. "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 program has with this community. I have no doubt we picked the right man for this job. The future is bright for Hawaii football."
Rolovich holds several passing records at Hawaii, including most touchdowns in a quarter (four against BYU, 2001) and in a game (eight against BY 2001). Rolovich, nicknamed “Rolo” as a player, replaced Timmy Chang in 2001 and went 8-1 as a starter. During that stretch, threw for 3,361 yards and 34 touchdowns. He was named the Most Valuable Player of the 2002 Hula Bowl.
