Hawai'i names former Utah QB Jordan Wynn their quarterback coach

Stephen Dunn

Former Utah quarterback Jordan Wynn will be Hawai'i's quarterback coach starting in January.

The Hawaii Warriors have made a new hire to their football staff, and it is former Utah quarterback Jordan Wynn. Wynn's football career ended after yet another shoulder injury earlier this season, and the latest injury forced him to retire from the game.

Wynn has been spending the season as a player coach for the Utes, and he already has his economics degree, so there is nothing more he needs to accomplish at Utah. The connection here is that Hawaii head coach Norm Chow was Utah's offensive coordinator for the 2011 season, so he is familiar with Wynn. Plus, Chow has seen him in action as a coach of sorts, due to Wynn missing most of last season with an injury.

Chow liked his time he had with Wynn as his coach this past season:

"The time we were together, I enjoyed it immensely," Chow said. "He is going to take our quarterbacks and be our quarterbacks coach, and I'm really excited."

Chow made the move to hire a quarterbacks coach after he has found it difficult to handled that position in addition to being the head coach. Wynn is just a 22-years-old, and will not have served as a graduate assistant, or any other official capacity as a coach. So, this move is very interesting for Hawaii to hire such a young person who lacks experience.

Who knows if Wynn will succeed, but if he does struggle he has one of the best offensive minds college football has ever seen to step in and help if things get too difficult for Wynn.

He will join the Hawai'i staff in January, and not a bad gig right out of college.
