Nick Rolovich is no longer the head coach of the Hawaii football team. According to The Athletic’s Bruce Feldman, Rolovich is expected to become the next coach of Washington State.
Rolovich complied a 28-27 record during his four-year run at the helm for UH. leading UH to three bowl game appearances including the program’s first 10 win season since 2010 this past year.
Yahoo has reported that Rolovich will receive a five-year deal at an average of nearly $3 million per season.
On Monday night, KHON2 spoke to a handful of people associated with Rolovich’s decision. Tamatota Mokiao-Atimalala and Ezra Evaimalo, who signed with UH in December, remained solid in their commitments to the program.
Former Hawaii player and coach Rich Miano commented on the breaking news on Monday as well.
Lastly, Saint Louis Jayden de Laura, who committed to Wazzu under former coach Mike Leach, was previously mum on enrolling but will now stick with his decision. Rolovich was the first to offer him a scholarship.
