Jake Thomas, who worked with the offensive line as a graduate assistant, is returning to his alma mater — Azusa Pacific — as the offensive line coach. Thomas is a former APU offensive lineman and assistant.
“Jake is a great pickup,” said APU head coach Victor Santa Cruz, a former UH linebacker. “He played O-line for us. He got his coaching break at Azusa. We appreciate all he’s been able to learn at Hawaii.”
UH coach Nick Rolovich said landing a full-time coaching job is one of the reasons graduate assistants and interns “put in the hard work.”
