Norm Chow enters his second season as head coach in Honolulu. Chow was a very respected offensive coordinator in the NFL but it remains to be seen whether or not he can be a winning head coach. Chow and the Warriors have a bevy of returning starters including veteran wide receiver Billy Ray Stutzmann who caught 35 passes 447. Ohio State transfer quarterback Taylor Graham provides a strong arm that can put ball on target. Defensively, the Warriors return senior strong safety Marrell Jackson who had 58 stops a year ago.
