Posted: Updated:

Nevada Offensive Coordinator Nick Rolovich was named the head football coach at University of Hawai`i on Friday. 

“We were thrilled to learn today that Nick Rolovich has been named head football coach at the University of Hawai`i. This is a well-deserved opportunity for Nick and his wonderful family. We will miss him professionally, but even more so as a person. UH made a great decision.”

“Both Nick and UH have been transparent throughout the whole process and I appreciated that very much. I am confident that his candidacy did not affect our preparation for SDSU. We will handle any decisions regarding the staff internally and make those decisions known when the time is appropriate.”

From the University of Hawai'i in Honolulu:

Former University of Hawai‘i quarterback and assistant coach and current University of Nevada offensive coordinator Nick Rolovich has been selected as the program’s new head coach, Athletics Director David Matlin announced.

Rolovich will be introduced at a press conference, Monday, Nov. 30. 

“I’m pleased to welcome back Nick Rolovich to the UH ‘ohana,” Matlin said. “Nick is a Warrior at heart and someone I know our fans will support. He understands what it means to be a Warrior having played and coached here and what affect a winning program has with this community. I have no doubt we picked the right man for this job. The future is bright for Hawai‘i football.”

“Being raised a Warrior, there is a great sense of excitement and responsibility about bringing back a winning tradition to Hawai‘i football,” Rolovich said. “I can’t wait to get started. I’m honored to be selected to run this program which has made me into the man I am today.”

Rolovich starred for UH from 2000-01 and later joined the Greg McMackin’s coaching staff from 2008-11, the latter three years as the team’s primary play-caller. He joined Nevada in 2012 and spent the past four seasons as the offensive coordinator under head coach Brian Polian.

UH concludes its regular season tomorrow night against Louisiana Monroe. Rolovich will coach his final game at Nevada tomorrow at San Diego State.
