Time for UH to Get a Clune

Hawaii finally hires a defensive coordinator, Kevin Clune from Utah State. Hopefully he's better than the guy he's replacing.

Big news today as Utah State linebacker coach Kevin Clune has been named the Rainbow Warriors' defensive coordinator. Thom Kaumeyer, who served as DC the past two seasons, was told last month his one-year contract would not be renewed when it expires in March. Clune completed his fifth season with the Aggies, who ranked 12th nationally in total defense this past season.

I really do like that UH poached an assistant from a familiar school, although I do wish that he had a little more experience with running an entire defense. I guess if UH was gonna get a great coach, they were going to have to take a bit of a risk, like they are doing here. The next one? Joey Porter, who was an assistant at Colorado State this past year. Bringing him on will do wonders for the program, at least as far as having him be a legit NFL connection. I wonder if that's what they'll do?
