“I want to thank Chris for his hard work and dedication to our football program,” said Head Coach Nick Rolovich. “He was critical in holding this program together in the transition from Coach Chow to myself. We wish him well in his future, and we will meet this challenge head on, because that is the Warrior way.”

Athletics Director Matlin says Naeole has had a tremendous impact on the program.
“Chris will be missed and he will always be a member of our Rainbow Warrior ʻohana,” said Matlin

Naeole spent the last four-plus years on the UH football staff, three under former head coach Norm Chow and the last one-plus under Rolovich. He also served as interim head coach after Chow’s departure.
