Former record-setting University of Hawaii quarterback Tim Chang is expected to be named to the University of Nevada coaching staff.

Chang, who spent the past season as offensive coordinator at Emory & Henry University in Virginia, would join the Wolf Pack as an inside receivers coach, according to several outlets.

FootballScoop.com was the first to post the report about Chang today.

The Star-Advertiser has been told an official announcement could come early Wednesday.

Under Chang, the Wasps averaged 33 points and 463 yards per game and finished 6-4 this season.

Nevada hired Jay Norvell as head coach Dec. 9.

Chang, who set several NCAA passing records during his stay at UH (2000, 2002-’04), previously coached at Jackson State for two seasons and was an offensive assistant at Southern Methodist. He was married Sunday on the Emory & Henry campus, a spokesman said.

A departure by Chang could open up a spot for Billy Ray Stutzmann to move up to offensive coordinator. Chang succeeded Stutzmann’s brother, Craig, as the Wasps’ offensive coordinator in February.
