From Stephen Tsai; Hon.Adv. Columnist.
Our choice is ...
Call off the search committee.
Cancel the contract with the head-hunters.(That's how we got in this mess in the first place.)
The best candidate to succeed June Jones already is on the payroll, already has a third-floor office with 15-year-old carpet.
My pick is defensive coordinator Greg McMackin.
He's still in town.
Best of all, he knows the town.
He wears slippers to practice. He eats poke. He embraces the Polynesian culture.
He's been in the big time — Miami Hurricanes, Seattle Seahawks, San Francisco 49ers — but doesn't act big time.
He's a football genius. UH doesn't beat Oregon State in the 1999 O‘ahu Bowl without that funky defensive twist, moving up an outside linebacker to create a five-man front.
Last season's comeback victory over San Jose State, the one that spawned the "Believe" rallying cry? That was made possible because McMackin ordered Blaze Soares to heat-seek the running back.
McMackin offers the best chance for continuity in a program that desperately needs stability.
With McMackin, the staff turnover is minimized.
And the systems remain. Ron Lee can run Jones' four-wide offense.
Cal Lee can run the defense.
And two guys with head-coaching futures — Rich Miano and Jeff Reinebold — get to stay in Hawai‘i.
With McMackin, recruiting proceeds as scheduled. It might even improve. McMackin is a skilled recruiter who can work the living rooms. And he could turn loose the Lee brothers, Miano and Reinebold. Cal Lee can land most of the top local prospects.
Most of all, McMackin is a workaholic. That office carpet? Who notices. The floor often is covered with pages and pages of defensive concepts.
Not sure if he would even want the job. But it wouldn't hurt to ask.
Nero fiddled while Rome burned……………

We have all the discussions and decisions about who the next UH coach will be........WHO is talking to the new potential recruits for the next season at UH?? WHAT about the potential recruits that were previously contacted while June Jones was coach? Or will we loose these also!

we don't want an overpaid coach. UH football is deadly dull. The WAC is a minor league..pay the coach 56,000 and nothign more. JJ could not win the big games and he fled. he would not have won next year and he knew it.

alice, stop playing with yourself - it affects your ability to think straight. No wonder you sound looney all the time.

Okay I get your point but Jopa coaches in a state that has deep pockets. Isn't Pennsylvania like 6th in the nation in economic output. This means that PENN STATE is a state runned/land grant university that operates on a 1.4 billion dollar endowment. Some of that money is put to use by the athletic department to upgrade athletic facilities used by football players. Thus making Jopa's job alot EASIER when recruiting big time recruits that can give you all of the accolades he earned.
On the flip side Hawai'i has a limited budget with limited help from the state. Coach Jones is building him a program off table scraps and making due with what he got. He is making chicken salad out of chicken shit. The best will not come here if they don't have anything to come to. Geez, isn't part of his contract fundraised by Na Koa????!!!
I hope Coach Jones LEAVES Hawai'i for more money its bout time the state puts up or shuts up. This state is always looking for handouts, freebies, and a hard work for free attitude. You all know its true. So please do not grumble about UH football when we go back into the dumps when he leaves for greener pastures.
Very True!!!

You and "truth" have nothing in common.
