Late head coach Dick Tomey to be honored throughout Hawaii’s season opener against Arizona


When the University of Hawaii football team hits the field in their season opener against Arizona at Aloha Stadium on Saturday, the iconic presense of late head coach Dick Tomey will be felt.

Throughout the game, UH will honor the late Dick Tomey, who coached at both Hawai’i and Arizona. Tomey passed away in May after a battle with lung cancer.

Tomey coached UH for 10 seasons from 1977-86, compiling a 63-46-3 record, and spent one season as special teams coordinator in 2011.

He is a member of the school’s Sports Circle of Honor.

Tomey left Hawai’i for Arizona in 1987 and led the Wildcats to seven bowl appearances in 14 seasons and was the school’s winningest coach.

Alumni of both Hawai’i and Arizona who played under Tomey, will join honorary captains Rich Tomey (Dick’s son) and Nanci Kincaid (Dick’s widow) for the pre-game coin toss. Dick Tomey alumni sign-up and information click here.

A special halftime performance which will include local musician Henry Kapono will accompany a slide show of Dick Tomey.
