Just 48 days after accepting the positions of offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach under head coach Nick Rolovich at the University of Hawai’i, Zak Hill is leaving the Rainbow Warrior program to become the quarterbacks coach at Boise State.
According to sources, Hill will make more money with the Broncos than his contract with Hawai’i.
Hill had come to Hawai’i from Eastern Washington, where he spent seven years.
Rolovich, who is currently recruiting in Northern California, released this statement through the UH athletics department: “Zak made the decision in the best interest of him and his family and we wish him well. Our focus is now on finding a replacement and moving forward. We recruit coaches and players the same way. We want people who want to be here and who fit into the Live Aloha, Play Warrior mold.”
It’s unclear at this time whether Rolo will call plays himself in 2016 or find a replacement.
Now down a member, the Rainbow Warrior coaching staff has seven days to fill out the class of 2016 before the beginning of footballs signing period.
National letter of intent signing day is Wednesday, February 3rd.
Hawai’i will host Boise State this season at Aloha Stadium this season. The date and time of the game is TBA.
