MANOA (HawaiiNewsNow) - Darrel "Mouse" Davis is back with the University of Hawaii football team. Friday Hawaii head coach Greg McMackin introduced Davis as Hawaii's new receivers coach.
"We're very fortunate to get the architect of the run-and-shoot to come back to Hawai'i and coach our wide receivers," McMackin said. "He taught the run-and-shoot to me, June (Jones), Ron (Lee), and everyone else in the country who runs this offense. He's been the single, most influential person in the passing game from high school to the professional level, in my opinion."
"Its fun to be back at UH and I'm excited for the prospect of helping out the Warriors this season," Davis said.
Davis was a member of the UH staff under June Jones from 2004 through 2006. In 2006, the Warriors averaged 559.2 yards of total offense, 46.9 points per game and finished 11-3 record. UH also led the nation in passing offense (441.3), total offense, scoring offense and pass efficiency (185.95).
New Hawaii offensive coordinator Nick Rolovich said he is eager to learn all he can from Davis.
"It would be pretty stupid pretty stupid of me not to use him for all his knowledge, all his history, all his stories, all his examples. I think that opportunity for me is something a lot of people would kill for," Rolovich told Hawaii News Now.
The Warriors open the season September 2 against USC at Aloha Stadium.
