Greg McMackin reportedly received his $600,000 severance check the past week, thus putting an official end to his working association with UH.
His tenure will be remembered for developing Alex Green, Greg Salas, Corey Paredes, Mana Silva, Vaughn Meatoga, etc.; giving coaching jobs to Nick Rolovich, Dave Aranda, Brian Smith and Tony Tuioti; starting the summer camps; implementing the summer bridge program; improving the APR scores; and introducing phrases such as “This ain’t P.E. football.”
Best wishes to McMackin and his family.

It’s the dead period again while coaches head to the football convention this weekend. UH is paying for members of the 2011 coaching staff to attend.

Norm Chow, who has been recruiting on the mainland, is expected back in town Monday night. He will be finalizing a couple of hirings early this coming week.
Meanwhile, assistant coach Lewis Powell, who will not be attending the convention, has been busy. Yesterday, he recruited in both California and Utah.
