Souza joins men in black

According to several published reports, Kamehameha High's football head coach Kanai Souza has been hired by Oregon State as the new offensive graduate assistant. Souza still has to fill out and submit the appropriate paperwork before it becomes official.

"Kanani brought this OSU program to our attention earlier this year as something he really wanted to do," Kamehameha High School Principal Tony Ramos said in a news release Tuesday. "It's a great opportunity for him to learn more about the game at the college level, and to exchange ideas he has with other coaches and players.

"We're very supportive of him taking this time to increase his knowledge."

The 59-year old coach has compiled a 79-25-2 record in nine seasons at Kamehameha while helping lead his team to the 2004 State Championship. It was the Warriors first league championship since 1979 and their first State Championship.

Souza has worked in the college ranks before as a assistant at the University of Hawaii and University of Colorado.

He is expected to work with the tight-ends at Oregon State.
