Catching on to coaching


Former UH receiver Billy Ray Stutzmann will be joining the Western New Mexico coaching staff.

Stutzmann said he will be working with the defensive backs.

The school is located in the Silver City, N.M. The Mustangs are members of  NCAA Division II Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference.

Stutzmann completed his UH eligibility after the 2013 season. He earned his bachelor’s degree in December. He did not participate in UH’s pro day in San Diego in March.

His brother, Craig Stutzmann, a former UH receiver and coach, is the offensive coordinator at Emory & Henry College, a Division III school in Virginia.

    Congratulations Billy Ray!

  4. jimmy the lock June 17, 2014 8:47 am

    Wonder what his coaching responsibility is and title?

    Good luck.

    So no news on any possible transfer quarterbacks?

  6. ponojr June 17, 2014 9:26 am

    Regarding QB transfers, is it realistic to think they would be able to come in and compete for a starting job?

  7. d1shima June 17, 2014 9:37 am

    Great Morning All!

    Good Luck Billy Ray. One door closes, another one opens.

  8. boya_jr June 17, 2014 9:42 am

    Good luck Billy Ray. Thanks for being a Warrior – you and your brother.

  9. al June 17, 2014 10:01 am

    congratulations billy ray!

    mahalo for representing the state so well.
    from kapahulu raiders to hawaii warriors to giving back to the youth of our country.
    wow, what a legacy for both stutz1 and stutz2. (although i always contend that papa bill is stutz the first.)


  10. al June 17, 2014 10:02 am

    6…it could happen and if it does then you know you got something special going on.
    after all, this year “we need a hero!”

  11. boolakanaka June 17, 2014 10:03 am

    Aloha All–Good luck to Billy! My father-in-law is born and bred from Silver City, which is a small mining town on the foothills, bordered by the Gila Forest and just east of the continental divide. Beautiful and quaint, albeit, very isolated….I’ll have to drop brudhha off some fish and poi, when I am there next.

  12. boolakanaka June 17, 2014 10:03 am

    3 one peong now??

  13. al June 17, 2014 10:04 am



  14. al June 17, 2014 10:05 am

    11…i’ll take some of that too.

  15. al June 17, 2014 10:06 am

    which brings to mind…
    what is your favorite thing to put into the poi bowl?

  16. Inyoface June 17, 2014 10:21 am

    Anyone can compete and have a successful season at qb without previous starts, even freshmans. Look at Manziel, Hundley & Mariota to name a few.

  18. C-Pop June 17, 2014 10:34 am

    Usually Redshirt freshmen have better chance for success

  19. Stephen Tsai June 17, 2014 10:47 am

    It’s all going to depend on the o-line, anyway. We’ll see how that works out. I am impressed with Kaiwi Chung. He’s a natural center.

  20. SteveM June 17, 2014 11:02 am

    Good morning everyone!

    Congrats and good luck to Billy Ray Stutzmann!

    Great win for USA over Ghana. Wish we spent less time on our half of the field, but glad we’re able to score the winning goal.

    We had the opportunity to have former Notre Dame’s Mens Soccer Coach, Mike Berticelli, here around the year 2000 to coach our son’s team during Easter vacation. He shared his view that soccer wouldn’t be as creative in US until the kids just play. Too often with organize soccer, that’s all the kids have and don’t learn to problem solve by just playing around. They need to be more like basketball where you go one on one in a pickup game, or just play catch in football and baseball. Until kids in US grab a friend to go outside and kick a soccer ball, we’ll never move on.

    Here’s a poem he wrote about a youth soccer coach…

    #21 Chopsueyboy. Great poem.

    As a kid I learned soccer by playing. What I learned from four years of being coached in high school was nothing compared to the five years of having fun playing before that.

  24. Bulla aka Rev Bu June 17, 2014 1:21 pm

    aloha and GOD-Gratulations to Billy Ray,

    great opportunities who work hard, both Craig and Billy Ray are proof of that. must have got that from somewhere…hmmmmm, just kidding Mr. Stutzmann

  25. Da Punchbowl Kid June 17, 2014 2:01 pm

    Good news for Billy Ray. It will be fun to follow the coaching accomplishments of all our ex-Warriors. Manao DNA in another kind of way.

    Work hard in the summer Warriors. First game will be here before you know it!


  26. Da Punchbowl Kid June 17, 2014 2:31 pm

  29. Boolakanaka June 17, 2014 6:17 pm

    fried portuguese sausage

  36. ponojr June 18, 2014 7:45 am

    Corned Beef straight out of the can with onion is da winnah! Lomi Oio with limu kohu and opihi (if get) is also a nice treat.

  37. tommui June 18, 2014 7:53 am

    #37 – the corn beef with onion got to be with white rice – brown rice doesn’t cut it.

    And good morning Hawaii! Guess ST is down at Waikiki Beach this AM!

  38. C-Pop June 18, 2014 7:57 am

    Poke & Vienna always Ono pupu.

  39. Buffoman June 18, 2014 8:00 am

    #28 and #33. If you get neighbor island family or good friends who can hook you up then try this for the “side” with your day or two day old poi. guess got to be one diver and know where this stuff stay. Dry Kala strips (box dry, not oven) then throw on one old school hibachi so get that burn marks (little papaa marks). get some enenui, some limu kohu, inamona, chili pepper, onion hawaiian salt and make poki (this one will taste like the ocean). Some chili pepper water. All pau.

    When I go home to neighbor island, get this from the family. Got to admit that the enenui poki is something you had to have grown up with as it is very chewy and does not taste like the store bought ahi poki. They do lot of gathering from around the reefs.

  40. Inyoface. June 18, 2014 8:17 am

    Where’s the new post?

  41. 3-Prong June 18, 2014 8:30 am

    ……..sardines (in da oil) and maui onions.

  42. Shoko June 18, 2014 8:43 am

    Spam, Vienna sausage, and corned beef. Only in Hawaii where a mystery meat can be seen as a delicacy.

    I remember my uncle would dry his own aku using a wooden frame enclosed with a protective screen. Also remember the huge amount of flies that would accumulate on the screen during the dehydration process. But, when you put that on a Hibatchi and eat it when its hot, oh man, that was ono!
