Hawaii OC Zak Hill reportedly taking same position with Boise State

Reports surface that after just 48 days with the program, Zak Hill, will leave the Rainbow Warriors.

Just 48 days after being brought in by Nick Rolovich to run the Hawaii Warrior offense, reports have surfaced that Zak Hill will leave the sunny isles for the cold weather in Boise, Idaho, for the same offensive coordinator position.

This developing story, not officially announced by Boise State or Hawaii, leaves a lot of questions to be answered; most of which will be directed towards Hill.

It isn't known what happened from the time he signed on to coach the 'Bows until now but clearly something made him second guess his decision. The departure of Hill will no doubt hurt the recruiting efforts of the Hawaii program, which isn't going very well to begin with for this 2016 cycle.

To read one of the initial reports on the situation in Boise check out Chadd Cripe's article in the Idaho Statesman. Dave Reardon trusts his reporting as stated in his quick take on the matter but until something gets announced officially we are mostly in the dark.

Rolovich does have experience as he himself second guessed a job when he accepted the Temple offensive coordinator job but then two weeks later returned to Nevada.


Rolovich did comment on losing Hill.

"Zak made the decision in the best interest of him and his family and we wish him well. Our focus is now on finding a replacement and moving forward," Rolovich said in a released statement. "We recruit coaches and players the same way. We want people who want to be here and who fit into the Live Aloha, Play Warrior mold."
