A week after joining the Hawaii football coaching staff, Aaron Price has a job title.
Price was named the Warriors’ offensive coordinator and receivers coach, head coach Norm Chow announced Wednesday afternoon. Price will help craft the offensive game plans.
Chow will remain as the primary play-caller and quarterbacks coach. Chow also announced:
> Chris Wiesehan, who was the offensive line coach last season, now will be in charge of the running backs.
> Chris Naeole, a Kahuku High graduate who played 12 NFL seasons, will be the offensive line coach.
> Keith Uperesa, who coached the running backs in 2012, is the new director of player personnel. Uperesa will oversee academics and compliance.
> Phil Rauscher remains as tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator.
> Jordan Wynn, a former Utah quarterback, is the offensive graduate assistant who will work with the quarterbacks.
> Former UH receiver Ashley Lelie will remain on the staff, although his title has not been determined.
The assignment changes were prompted after Tommy Lee retired in December. He was the offensive coordinator in 2012.
UH then posted two openings — offensive coordinator and director of player personnel. The latter position was left open as a cost-saving measure last year.
