Run-and-shoot offense legend Mouse Davis will be announced as receivers coach for the University of Hawaii football team Friday, according to several sources.
Davis, a record-setting passing game pioneer as head coach at Portland State, replaces Ron Lee. Lee resigned last month after 11 seasons as receivers coach and two as offensive coordinator.
This will be Davis’ second stint as a Warriors assistant. He served on the staff of his protege and former quarterback, June Jones, as running backs coach and special teams coordinator.
“There’s a strong possibility … you know, Hawaii is one of those places you like to get to,” Davis said last month, when asked if he would be a candidate for the opening.
No other candidates emerged.
Davis, 77, is also one of the co-founders of arena football.
