Former UH head coach Dick Tomey is returning to the television booth as color analyst for OC Sports’ pay-per-view telecasts of Rainbow Warrior football games, the Warrior Beat has learned.
Tomey, 75, succeeds Darnell Arceneaux, who is now quarterbacks coach at Occidental. Tomey will partner with Robert Kekaula, who is the play-by-play announcer.
Tomey was a football analyst during KFVE’s telecasts in 2001 and 2002.
Tomey was UH’s head for 10 seasons, through 1986, compiling a record of 63-46-3. He also was head coach at Arizona for 14 years, and at San Jose State for five years.
Tomey returned to UH as special teams coordinator in 2011. He served as an occasional consultant to UH the past year.
There are expected to be seven PPV telecasts of UH football games this year.

Dr. Greg Chow (no relation to you-know-who) was the orthopedic surgeon who performed the operation on quarterback Sean Schroeder’s back.
It was after the 9/11 attacks that Dr. Chow enlisted with the Army Reserves.
The day after performing Schroeder’s surgery, Dr. Chow was summoned to the Middle East to provide medical help.

Speaking of those who serve the public and this country, happy birthday to Mark Takai.
