Norm Chow dismisses Hawaii OC after just five months

And we have our first coaching casualty of the 2013 season — before the season even begins (beating Houston’s previous record of one game in 2012).

In a surprising, and untimely, move, Hawaii coach Norm Chow said Friday before the start of fall practice that offensive coordinator Aaron Price has been dismissed. Chow (pictured) did not go into specifics, saying only “some issues have arisen.”

Price, the son of former UTEP and Washington State coach Mike Price, came to Hawaii from El Paso in February after spending nine seasons with the Miners with his father. He served as OC and wide receivers coach for the Rainbow Warriors for a mere five months.

Team officials told the Associated Press that Chow likely won’t find a replacement for Price this year; rather, he’ll oversee Price’s old duties and expand the roles of two graduate assistants. Chow obviously has years of experience calling plays from his time at places like BYU and USC, but UH struggled offensively last year (just over 21 points per game) during a 3-9 season.

    He gets it honest.

    I think Chow is another Charlie Weis.

    Must have been pretty bad to dump him now. But the first real boss for a guy who has worked for nobody but his father before really doesn’t know what he’s getting.
