As the University of Hawaii football team opened training camp Friday morning, head coach Norm Chow announced that the book has been closed on offensive coordinator Aaron Price.
It was evident from the start that Price was not in attendance.
UH explained in a press release 50 minutes into practice that the first-year assistant is no longer with the team.
Price, who joined the Rainbow Warriors in February, was expected to help open the offense alongside Chow, while also serving as a receivers coach.
However, 27 days away from its season opener, things came crashing down.
Chow spoke to the media and did not hide obvious frustration over the apparent dismissal.
“It’s an unfortunate situation, but we have to worry about these 104 young men that are out here,” Chow said. “Situations, circumstances have arisen and we just feel like it’s the best thing to move on. I don’t think those reasons are important… we need to move on.”
Sources tell KHON2 that Price will earn his one-year, six-figure salary, and the unnamed reason for his dismissal is not purely football related.
