HILO (HawaiiNewsNow) - Good news for one of the good guys in local sports. Tino Reyes lost his job as the lead assistant on the UH men's volleyball team when Mike Wilton stepped down as head coach. But tonight, Reyes has a new gig.

He's been hired as the new women's head coach at UH Hilo. It's a homecoming of sorts for Reyes. He went to Hilo in the late 70's, played on the Vulcan basketball team and now returns to lead the women's volleyball program there.

Reyes takes over for Bruce Atkinson who left UH-Hilo last month to coach division one volleyball at Towson State in Baltimore.

There are rumblings Reyes may hire Wilton to be his assistant.
