The Navy coaching staff has strong ties to the University of Hawaii with head coach Ken Niumataloloho being from Laie and played quarterback at the University of Hawaii and offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Ivin Jasper also being a former UH quarterback.

A possible invitee to the Hawaii Bowl is Southern Methodist University who is bowl eligible for the first time since 1984.
