UH hires running backs coach

By Stephen Tsai

LAST UPDATED: 01:26 a.m. HST, Mar 29, 2014

The University of Hawaii football team hired Wayne Moses on Friday as assistant coach in charge of running backs.

Moses has worked at five Pac-12 schools in a coaching career dating to 1979, when he was at Cal State Fullerton. Moses and UH head coach Norm Chow were on the same coaching staffs at UCLA and USC.

Moses most recently was at Army, where he coached in 2013 under Rich Ellerson, a former UH defensive coordinator. Ellerson was fired in December.

Moses fills the UH position vacated when Chris Wiesehan resigned to become Temple's offensive line coach.

Moses is expected to join the Rainbow Warriors in time for Tuesday's opening of training camp.

The Warriors have one coaching vacancy remaining. They are expected to wait until this summer to replace Phil Rauscher, who was not retained as tight ends coach.

Actually the best move for UH would be a subtraction - Chow.

Great running back? What makes you think that? Are you the same guy who said Chow is fantastic because he coached great quarterbacks?

Surprising that there's no Utah/BYU/Mormon connection! What's wrong with Chow?

Would have been WAY too obvious. Besides, Chow has very limited options on coaches willing to come here. Unemployed ones are probably the only options open to him. This guy comes from an offense that is far removed from Chow runs so it's obvious Chow didn't have much to pick from.

Unfortunately he's working under a clueless head coach.

And your coaching experience consist of what? Somehow I'm sure that your low-paying job performance would have invited a lot of criticism if anyone actually cared about anything you did and your job was actually important enough to matter to anyone. That's okay, you keep on envying everyone who has a better life and has achieved far more in their lives than you ever will. So sad.

I'm enjoying my retirement - suggest Chow does that too.

Ok that's nice but when are they going to recruit offensive linemen who can protect the QB. The past two seasons UH QB's have been running for their lives. Literally running for their lives. It starts and ends in the trenches on the line of scrimmage.

Probably never under Chow, he probably got no decent players in his last recruiting class.

Not one peep out of Chow? Spring training starts already and Chow is MIA. Hoping he goes AWOL.

When it was announced that Phil Rauscher stepped down it was stated that it was for "Personal Reasons". This article is saying he was "not retained". What is the real reason, anyone out there know ?????
