Stutzmann will join Portland State staff

Craig Stutzmann is joining the Portland State coaching staff.
Stutzmann, who is in charge of UH receivers, told PSU head coach Jerry Glanville he will accept the offer, which must be finalized by the school president.
An announcement is likely to be made tomorrow.
Stutzmann’s younger brother, freshman wideout Billy Ray Stutzmann, will remain with the Warriors.

Very happy birthday wishes to Rob25.

    Craig Stutzman – Good Luck.

  3. ai-eee-soos August 2, 2009 2:07 am

    This is a great opportunity for Craig –

    He gets a coaching job title, with an appropriate salary.

    At UH, he will have to wait for a position to open up.

  4. ai-eee-soos August 2, 2009 2:14 am

    Brought this over – yeah, I’ll do my part.

    top ten, can he make a living on $30K in Oregon…no sales tax, better if if was no income tax

  8. Garret August 2, 2009 4:26 am

    Best wishes to Craig Stutzmann. A full-time coaching position is important for his career and Portland State would be lucky to get him. I hope that his loss doesn’t hurt the Warrior program too much in the long run…but he’s got to look out for his career. Maybe someday he can come back to coach at UH.

  9. Garret August 2, 2009 4:27 am

    Regarding #4, I sent an e-mail of support for Mac yesterday afternoon. Hopefully getting support e-mails from Warrior fans will help him realize that we are behind him.

  10. Garret August 2, 2009 4:29 am

    Pisa must have enjoyed his first practice in full pads with the Bears…and he definitely announced his presence.

    With players in full pads after practicing in shells and shorts Friday, the Bears conducted an inside run drill that was highlighted by linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa’s crunching hit on running back Kevin Jones.

    “It was a pretty clean hit,” Tinoisamoa said. “I think we woke each other up though.”

    “Second-year quarterback Colt Brennan is one of Jim Zorn’s pet projects. And, while Brennan does have an unorthodox throwing motion, Zorn is looking elsewhere to try to improve his performance.”

    ““He’s trying to rhythm up my footwork and that’s what he’s been harping on,” he said.

    Repeating what could be a new Zorn-ism to go along with “stay medium”, Brennan said, “Today he was getting my feet to rhythm up.”

    It’s not second nature for him yet. “Hopefully after two weeks, three weeks I’m doing what he asks me and he’s happy with what I’m doing.”

    So the bottom line is that if Colt Brennan wants to move up on the depth chart he will need to rhythm up.”

  18. Bulla August 2, 2009 7:24 am

    Congrats to Craig Stutzmann !!!

    He has to take care of his family, and you can’t pay bills on broken promises. Take care of #1 and advance your career. ‘The Beast’ looks forward to seeing you on 9-26-09 when the Wildcats come to town.

    You are a class act Craig, and you WILL do well. PSU is very lucky to get such a dedicated coach; you were a great inspiration to Ryan, and taught him that ‘hard work does pay off’. He has you to thank for a lot of his success, and as a parent, I truly appreciate you teaching the young men at Kalaepohaku about Respect, Responsiblity and Resilience.

    Good luck Coach, see you soon 🙂

    Nothing is given to anyone in life, everything must be earned. It appears he didn’t put in the effort last season that coaching requires.

  22. Stretch August 2, 2009 8:26 am

    Good Morning Tsaikos!!

    Good Luck to Stutz.

    Whoever comes in to coach the receivers, it’s going to have to be a grad assistant again since I don’t belive there are any full time positions available?? Or they may move coaches around?? Timing is not good with camp opening shortly.

  23. Pomai August 2, 2009 8:27 am

    Go Stuz, good move, learn a lot and come back home when you can.

    It appears he didn’t put in the effort last season that coaching requires.

    From where was your vantage point to evaluate said “appearances”?
    In the cot next to him sleeping in the dance hall as a monitor during camp last year? In the film room with him all the hours breaking down video? In countless coaches’ meetings before, during and after the season? At all practices and meeting with players before and after practice? Attending classes with him while working on his Masters? Attending PR events to promote the team? Away from his family on road trips? Attempting to construct a family budget with a wife on maternity leave with a GA stipend?

    Just wondering?

  40. A-House August 2, 2009 9:39 am


    Maybe Coach Ron Lee can work again with the receivers as he did with JJ.

    Or, Coach Mack can transfer Timmy Chang to coaching the receivers.

  41. Maynard G. Krebbs August 2, 2009 9:47 am

    As for Ah-Yah’s remarks, all I can say is “ah-yah” which of course is Chinese for “good grief”.

  42. Garret August 2, 2009 9:50 am

    To be a graduate assistant at UH, the coach has to be admitted into graduate school at UH…it could be hard to get anyone admitted before the Fall semester starts, which would mean that Ron Lee may just have to pull double duty as WR coach and offensive coordinator.

  43. Garret August 2, 2009 9:53 am

    Mac cannot just pick who he wants to be a graduate assistant because of the requirement that the coach has to be admitted to a graduate program. That really limits the choices that can be feasibly suggested.

    I would say that being one GA short this season would save UH money…but graduate assistants really don’t make much.

  44. Kazz August 2, 2009 9:59 am

    Best of luck to the elder Stutz!!! :mrgreen:

  45. Kazz August 2, 2009 10:06 am

    I may have missed the daily countdown from “them”, but where the hell was Dr. Dan Robinson DDS?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

    Besides, I think they should have kept picking the Top 5 with their panel of “experts and consultants” as opposed to letting the Top 5 be chosen via online polls.

    I do believe Colt should be #1, but that is my generational bias, but at the same time no one can deny what he did for us.

    However I have to agree with Papa Leahey in that I also believe that the Warriors that came before like Al Noga and Tommy Kaulukukui didn’t get too much of a fair shot at #1 because the on line voting caters to a certain demographic more (a young demographic) and it is not quite indicative of where they truly should be in the scope of UH football lore as a whole.

    It was a daunting task to try to do justice to the thousands of past Warriors by ranking 100 of them, but if they went with one formula of naming 100-95, they could of gone with 5 more right?

  46. Committed Road Warrior August 2, 2009 10:17 am

    Best of luck to Craig Stutzmann at Portland State. I do agree with Garret that the graduate assistant position being vacated by him might end up going vacant. Perhaps he makes a comeback in several years time…..

  52. Ai-Yah August 2, 2009 10:48 am

    I know about the opprotunity that was given to Stutz to be a full time coach. He didn’t take that opportunity, instead, sat back and thought it would happen automatically.

  53. d1島 August 2, 2009 10:52 am


    If not for the entire context of Bulla’s post, that may be possible.

  54. d1島 August 2, 2009 11:02 am


    To you “sat back” is doing all the things a GA would normally do PLUS what a full-time coach (which is what Mac said he considered Stutz to be) does?

    But again, apologies, Glanville certainly does see it your way.

    Hmmm…I wonder who brought up his name to begin with?

  55. wafan August 2, 2009 11:05 am

    d1 . . .

    I agree.

    I thought the time difference might have been a cause for “overlapping” posts. But they are separated by 32 minutes.

    An issue of contextual miscues?

    ST- I was delighted to see Lelie back home in Hawaii. He is my pre-Colt favorite Warrior! Do you think there’s a chance that he would be interested in coaching?

  60. lava August 2, 2009 11:46 am

    Lelie should go back to the NFL. He’d be a great fit with the Colts and Manning playing on fast turf in Indy.

  61. Ai-yah August 2, 2009 11:51 am

    d1 & Bulla – Are you guys trying to say that Coach Mac is not a man of his word?? If Stutz did what he should have done last season, his new title would be UH assistant coach, not at PSU.

    I know you guys have a St Louis connection with Stutz and will back him up, but this one’s all on him

  62. LizKauai [iMac] Unite and Conquer! August 2, 2009 12:00 pm

    “The quarterback play was very shaky this morning. Jason Campbell was under constant pressure, even in the 9 on 9s, when the defense was only rushing two. For the most part, he still appears to be holding on to the ball too long, which led to two interceptions, one by Chris Horton, one by Byron Westbrook. Todd Collins did not perform any better, getting picked off by Michael Grant. Colt performed relatively well against the third and fourth teams, and the fans love him for it.”

    And then…

    “The quarterbacks also looked relatively sharp as well. With that being said, there was no offensive line or defensive line involved.”

    “CB: He got less of a chance today. In team drills, CD came in before CB. Colt got the reps yesterday, Chase got the reps today. It does say something that they are alternating giving Chase and Colt reps.

    He played average. Had a few pretty good throws, some bum throws. Footwork is what I said yesterday, much improved from last year, but not good. Ploddy and mechanical is how I would describe it. He went through read progressions. He had a few very good throws, but none that were as good as the ones he had yesterday.

    He tripped over his own guy once, and dropped a snap during drills throwing to RBs against air. Neither of these things is good.”

    Re Chase Daniel:
    “Look out for this guy. I think he’s going to push Colt for that third spot if he keeps playing the way he’s playing.”

  63. Garret August 2, 2009 12:09 pm

    I don’t see how Lelie could get admitted to UH in time for this season. Plus, since he left early did he get his degree yet? If not, he’s not eligible for a graduate assistant spot.

    Nate Ilaoa would be an excellent choice since he’s already in Hawaii and he was trained as a slotback when he first came to UH.

    Article about how BSU dominating the WAC is bad for the conference.

    The respect is well-earned. The Broncos have won six of the last seven conference titles, five of them outright. Boise State is 54-2 in league play in the past seven years.

    That reign is expected to continue this season, and possibly beyond. The Broncos were a unanimous preseason pick among league coaches and three votes shy of unanimous in the media poll.

    But the dominance since 2002 – which may have been the best thing for the new-look WAC in gaining a national foothold – has reached the point of diminishing returns for the Broncos and the league.

    No matter how many victories and how many points Boise State puts up in league play, the national media basically shrugs. The low-standing of the rest of the teams contributed to Boise State ranking behind Utah despite both teams going undefeated in 2008.

    The Pac-10 faces this same problem. No one doubts USC’s brilliance. But because the Trojans have so thoroughly controlled the league for the past seven years, the rest of the Pac-10’s teams – fairly or not – are considered inferior. The conference has not placed two teams in the Bowl Championship Series, a regular occurrence for the SEC, Big Ten and Big 12, since the 2002-03 bowl season.

  66. Garret August 2, 2009 12:15 pm

    The Idaho Statesman Columnist puts in a not-too-subtle plug for the MWC to end his column.

    I can’t help thinking, however, that the Broncos would be better off if, instead of eight puppies chasing at their heels, they got to mix it up with other big dogs.

    Penn State is taking some criticism for their nonconference schedule, but they say they are taking it easy out of conference to win a national title.

    But the Nittany Lions’ soft non-conference schedule — ranked second-worst among BCS schools by The Sporting News — could make it hard for them to contend for the national championship.

    Penn State’s four non-conference opponents, all of whom will visit Beaver Stadium, were a combined 18-30 last season with no bowl appearances.

    Only Mississippi has a worse non-conference schedule than Penn State, according to The Sporting News. Two of the Rebels’ four non-Southeastern Conference games are against I-AA foes.

    “It could hurt us, but, the way we look at it, it will be hard to keep us out of the national championship,” said center Stefen Wisniewski from Central Catholic High School. “Our goal is to win them all.”

    The Lions open the season with non-conference games against Akron Sept. 5, Syracuse Sept. 12 and Temple Sept. 19. The last non-Big Ten game is Oct. 10 against Eastern Illinois.

  69. Derek August 2, 2009 12:21 pm

    Consideration for receivers coach. Darrack Branch. He’s available right now. You have to be a good teacher. Another good one might be Dane MacArthur but I don’t know where he is.

  70. Garret August 2, 2009 12:22 pm

    According to this depth chart, Bess is starting training camp as the backup to Camarillo. That is how they started the season last year, with Bess use at slot receiver and the top backup at WR. Unfortunately, the way that Miami runs its offense (lots of sets with 2 TE or a TE and FB), Bess’ stats at slot receivers were MUCH lower than when he was a starting WR.

  71. Ralph August 2, 2009 12:23 pm

    I thought it was mentioned here that Nate is back to finish up his B.S. or B.A. degree, if so, he is not eligible for the GA position.

  72. Garret August 2, 2009 12:24 pm

    Another Florida paper has a report from Miami’s practice today.

    Wide receiver Greg Camarillo, coming off a ACL tear, lined up with the first-team offense, along with Ted Ginn Jr.

    Camarillo made one of the day’s nicest catches, on a ball thrown a bit behind him by back-up QB Chad Henne.

  73. Garret August 2, 2009 12:25 pm


    I was hoping that Nate finished up his degree this summer…if not, then he’s not eligible for the GA position either.

  76. Garret August 2, 2009 12:29 pm

    The trouble of hiring a WR coach without having a spot on the coaching staff available is that you need someone who can work a full-time job (coaches actually put in well more than 40 hours per week) but work basically for free with no health coverage or other benefits. That rules out a lot of people.

    The other problem is that there is no guarantee that someone making that sacrifice will have a spot open up for them next year…what if none of the other coaches want to leave?

  77. djmitcho August 2, 2009 12:30 pm

  78. Willie August 2, 2009 12:31 pm

    Good news on Wie getting her wish to make the Solheim Cup team, shot a great 3 under today.

    If they replay the news conference announcing the captain’s picks take a look at Paula Cramer in the back when Daniel announces Wie. Again focus on Cramer’s facial expression & body language when Wie gets the microphone. Two times & same reaction by Cramer, is it just me or is there something there?

  79. Garret August 2, 2009 12:33 pm


    Thank you for posting #56 and #62. It sounds like Colt’s hope to have a shot at the #2 QB spot are over before the preseason even started. Plus, it sounds like Zorn likes Chase Daniel a lot and is trying to give him enough reps by taking reps away from Colt! It will be hard for Colt to improve if he doesn’t get practice reps.

    If Zorn tries to alternate preseason games for Colt and Chase, that would mean that neither would get enough valuable preseason experience to maximize their development. Then the winner (Colt) would be the #3 spot without reps during the season, so losing out on preseason and training camp reps will really set him back significantly!

    Some Colt comments are starting up on his “official website”.
    Day two started rough with a 5 a.m. wake up call for a random drug test, but I was able to get another hour of sleep or so. The morning practice was long, I felt bad for the receivers!!! The fans were awesome and were in full force and watched us go hard for two hours. Besides one dropped snap and one play called wrong, not a bad day. It was a better day today than yesterday; let’s hope that doesn’t change. They’re predicting heavy rain for the afternoon practice.”

  82. whitey August 2, 2009 12:54 pm

    Good afternoon tsaikos. Congrats to Coach Stutz and hope he gets the PSU job. Ashley is a great receiver, but his work ethics are questionable, so I would not consider him for the GA position.

  83. PowderPuff August 2, 2009 12:56 pm

    Happy Sunday, Tsaikos. And HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Rob25. Woo hoo!

    Best of luck to Stutz in Portland.

  84. Garret August 2, 2009 12:57 pm

    David Veikune was praised in this practice report.

    Rookie LB David Veikune has spent the vast majority of the practice sessions as an ILB and done well. Veikune has an endless motor, plays the game with aggression, and is explosive. Late in the Sunday session, Veikune was lined up over RT George Foster as a rusher off the edge, but a Kurt Quarterman penalty stopped the action before it started and the staff lost the opportunity to see this potential pass rusher in action off the corner against an experienced lineman.

  85. LizKauai [iMac] Unite and Conquer! August 2, 2009 12:58 pm

    COLT WATCH- another opinion:

    “- CB looked better, which knowing me, is a pretty high compliment. His release point is generally higher, I say generally because he still has a tendency to drop and throw sidearm…he did it at least twice today during drills. He has a stronger arm than I’ve been giving him credit for, though his deep passes have a tendency to wobble. Had at least one gorgeous deep bomb that he dropped right in Malcolm Kelly’s lap, over the shoulder, perfect.

    Oh, and for those who care, during one drill, not full team, Colt was playing safety. So if he doesn’t supplant JC, the cult can still live on.”

    So THAT’S what it’s called? 🙂

  87. Garret August 2, 2009 12:59 pm

    I found 3 articles that mentioned the Ingram-Hodel battle for the long-snapper spot.

    Eight-year veteran Nathan Hodel would appear to have the edge over rookie Jake Ingram on paper. But as Belichick reminded everyone on Sunday, what happens on paper doesn’t always translate to the field.

  88. Garret August 2, 2009 1:00 pm

    New England’s kicker talked about working with their new long-snappers.

    In yet another respect, this summer will be a learning process for the fourth-year kicker as well. With veteran long snapper Lonie Paxton’s departure for Denver, free-agent acquisition Nathan Hodel (Arizona Cardinals) and sixth-round draft pick Jake Ingram (University of Hawaii) are competing for that role.

    “There are going to be days when you feel like you’re in rhythm with them. There are going to be days where you’re not,” said Gostkowski. “The hardest thing sometimes is going from one to the other, but it’s about being patient. You can’t come out and think you’ve got it one day. You’ve still got to work at it.

    “It took a while to get used to Lonie. It’s going to take a while to get used to Nate or Jake. Take it a day at a time, and you can’t think if you missed a couple of kicks one day it’s because of them. You’ve just got to be patient and try to find that rhythm so when that first game comes you feel comfortable. That’s what we’re working toward – feeling comfortable in that first game.”

  89. Garret August 2, 2009 1:01 pm

    Bill Belichick discussed Jake Ingram today.

    Q: Can you talk about the importance of getting the rookie long snappers in rhythm with Chris Hanson and Stephen Gostkowski?

    BB: Jake’s [Ingram] an experienced snapper. He’s done it in college, but it’s still basically the same skill. It’s just working against better competition and trying to refine it, make it even sharper, more accurate, faster and all those things. We’re going through our protection things. Adjustments, we did that yesterday [and] we’ll go back and hit that again tomorrow. Different rush looks with twists and things like that and the long and short snap accuracy as well as the coverage stuff. I think Jake’s … He’s working at it. Like every rookie, he’s got a long way to go, but his skills are a little more specific. He’s probably further along in terms of reaching the top level at his skill than most of the other rookie players are because they have a lot more skills to master. But I think the competition between Jake and Nate [Hodel] is good. I think they’ve both done a good job. [Those are] two guys that are competing well against each other.

  98. J-Dog August 2, 2009 1:31 pm

    re: #69,

    Not sure about Darrick Branch or Dane McArthur as WR coaches for this team. I think it would be better to bring someone that knows and played in JJ’s run-and-shoot offense.

  99. Ralph August 2, 2009 1:38 pm

    too bad the Solheim Cup doesn’t include the Asians and South Americans. Maybe the South Americans would be short handed though, not as many to pick from as compared to the Europeans, Americans and Asians.

  100. Ralph August 2, 2009 1:44 pm

    Willie the American golfers, Creamer, Pressel and Lincicome have had their moments with negative comments toward Wie in the media. Wie got a lot of money and exemptions that the girls ego couldn’t accept, they sulked, fumed and made their views known to the golf channel. Once Wie wins her first tourney the “monkey will be off her back” and more wins will come sooner than later. “monkey will be off her back” is a cliche, not in reference to anyone or any group, etc.

  101. d1島 August 2, 2009 1:50 pm


    It’s been over 5 hours since I presented a list of things he was doing and you only keep saying there are things he “should have done.”

    For the sake of the program, please list things that the next GA “should do.”

  104. Ethan Rom August 2, 2009 2:40 pm

    Did Lelie retire? Or is it because no NFL team wants him? I say he still has a few more years left in him.

  105. BG August 2, 2009 2:46 pm

    Although it’s probably moot because he’s not in a grad program, I would not have favored Lelie despite all the great things he did for UH. He really didn’t have a lot of time in the RnS at UH and didn’t experience it in the NFL. Also, the great athlete often is at a disadvantage trying to teach less athletically talented young men how to do what he did because what he did was a product of his athleticism. I prefer the less talented person who became a good player because of a great work ethic, attention to detail, and lots of time spent watching tapes. I believe this kind of person has historically done well as coaches. Craig Stutzmann was a great get for receivers’ coach. We’re less well off with his departure, but..dang…nothing but well wishes for his future success.

  106. Jason August 2, 2009 2:54 pm

    I was just thinking of Britton Komine as a candidate, since he knows both the slot and wideout positions, but then I saw he’s in the Air National Guard.

    Hmm, what is Ross Dickerson up to?

    Happy birthday Rob25!

  107. KonaGold August 2, 2009 3:11 pm

    bulla…”you can’t pay bills on broken promises” WTF… are we now kicking people when they are down? And why is Billy Ray remaining with the Warriors if what you say is true? I sure as heck wouldn’t stay with a program if someone “lied” to my brother. All in all…good luck to Craig.

  108. BG August 2, 2009 3:12 pm


    Thanks for coming up with the names I was trying to remember! Do you remember that Komine had an ROTC scholarship instead of an athletic scholarship? I’m sure he’s doing great things for the Air Guard.

  109. d1島 August 2, 2009 3:13 pm


    IIRC Dickerson joined the USMC

  110. PSUVikings August 2, 2009 3:14 pm

    The Viking fan base is grateful to land an experienced R&S Coach! Looking forward to him giving Drew and the boys another view on this complicated offense!

    How about a little good news?

    Yesterday’s HI-5 SOS Drive for Kaimuki & McKinley High Schools’ athletic departments to help with their budgetary cutbacks brought in $650+ in actual redemption fees plus nearly $350 in cash contributions put in the little jar we made available for folks who wanted to give money.

    Tomorrow, each school will get a cashier’s check for $500 apiece for their athletic programs.

    Mahalo to several nearby bars for donating their bottles and to Slugger & Curveball for dropping off theirs.

    Stayed tuned for similar drives in other O`ahu communities through the end of 2009. And, of course, don’t forget the mini-drives at the T-Gates throughout the football season to benefit PIAA, the after-school cross-country program at Dole Middle School, and the Dave Shoji 1000 Win Scholarship Drive.

    Happy Birthday Rob25.

    COLT WATCH!…g__2_45208.jsp

    “QB Drill

    Jim Zorn’s wacky quarterback drills are back. These are perfect for training camp–they are a great attraction for fans.

    Zorn gathered his quarterbacks midfield. As the QB dropped back to pass, he faced a barrage of pads.

    Jason Campbell was tripped up as pads were thrown at his feet. At the last minute, another pad hit him in the back, and Campbell fell to the ground.

    Todd Collins had his footwork impacted as he dropped back to pass. He stumbled, and his pass was off the mark.

    Colt Brennan dropped back and did not have his mechanics interrupted at all by the barrage of pads. He maintained fluidity and completed his throw.

  115. Ai-Yah August 2, 2009 3:32 pm

    d1 – everyone goes to work but you and I know there is a difference in the way people work. Some will put in the extra effort, some will do only what’s required. He didn’t take the extra step to prove he was worthy, he only performed as a GA.

    Like KonaGold says, if Mac lied to Stutz, why would Stutz2 stick around?? He still young enough and has a lot of time to move to another program.

  116. KonaGold August 2, 2009 3:39 pm

    Ai-Yah…let’s agree to disagree on Craig….my opinion is that he did not get the position, because Coach hired two new coaches to address the team’s immediate need on the O line and Special teams.

    now that Mouse is retired I’m wondering if Glanville changed his offensive scheme/philosophy or is someone in place to teach the run and shoot.

  142. whitey August 2, 2009 8:14 pm

    anytime a young coach leaves, it is not easy, but if he or she wants to be a coach at a higher level, you got to go. this being coach stutzman’s first official asst coach job, he has a long way to go, but this is an excellent step for him. wish him and his family well and sometime in the future, he may return to UH. go gettum stutz!!!!!!

  143. Garret August 2, 2009 8:18 pm

    Congratulations to Coach Stutzmann. I wish him well at Portland State and think that Jerry Glanville is lucky to have him.

    JD’s chat this month on SportsHawaii really comes at a good time. With the press conference ending last week and the WAC hopefully announcing nothing to add on to the punishment, plus with all of the other things going on, I’m sure that there will be a lot of great questions for him to answer.

    In spite of his busy schedule, Jim Donovan will be holding his monthly chat with Sports Hawaii on Monday, August 3rd at 10:00 am.

  148. Garret August 2, 2009 8:27 pm

    A couple of notes relevant to Bess on this long stream of news from Miami’s practice:

    Greg Camarillo (ACL, meniscus surgery) ran with the Dolphins’ first-team offense on the first day of training camp.

    Camarillo’s recovery from knee surgery has been ahead of schedule, and he’s ahead of Davone Bess on the depth chart. It doesn’t mean Camarillo will repeat last year’s production, but he’ll keep Bess in the slot as long as he’s healthy.

    Davone Bess is a lot bigger.

  155. d1島 August 2, 2009 8:35 pm

    it’s a four-wide formation, but there will be more running plays.

    Makes sense esp. now that Strasser is gone. Glanville had Strasser selected as WR coach/pass game coordinator and last season’s OL coach, Jim Craft as the QB Coach/run game coordinator. Now Craft is the OC and Stutz will be the WR coach.

  156. Stephen Tsai August 2, 2009 8:36 pm

    Ron Lee had nice things to say about Stutzmann.
    He said Stutz worked “his tail off,”and that he will be missed as much for his work on the field as for ability to break down videos and plays.

  157. Slugger August 2, 2009 8:39 pm

    Happy birthday, Rob25!!!

  158. d1島 August 2, 2009 8:39 pm


    Once Mouse Davis left there was no one who could teach the R&S; that’s what makes Stutzmann a great fit there.

  159. d1島 August 2, 2009 9:02 pm

    On a brighter note for the Warriors, one thing that made it hard to leave was that Stutz was really excited about the group of receivers with which he was working. So much more speed!

  160. Ralph August 2, 2009 9:04 pm

    now if Glanville has an Earl Campbell on his roster his offense will be in high gear. How about a white shoes Johnson at wr, that will definitely make the offense rock.

    Sad to see Stutz leave. From what I observed at practice and at the Hawaiʻi Bowl, I thought he was a heck of a coach for such a young guy. But he has to do what is best for himself and his family. I hope he’ll get a chance to return soon, cause he’s got loads of potential.

    (I’m kidding, of course.)

    nostalgia brings out Al..Campbell was the man in Texas, surprised he decided to retire early, he must have lost the desire

  172. Jason August 2, 2009 10:34 pm

    Campbell was pretty beat up by then, wasn’t he? Took a lot of hits, RBs don’t last long when you take a beating like that.

  173. royal crown August 2, 2009 10:39 pm


    What I like about Stutzmann is that for such a young man he speaks very well. And to me it was like listening to a veteran coach. When I’ve heard him on Bobby’s Show and even here on the WB he comes across as speaking with such authorization and knowledge that it is impressive listening to him. If he can capture the audience listening to him, like myself, then I can imagine he has no problem capturing the attention of the kids he’d be coaching. He should do really well up there coaching in Portland.

    The transition from Hawaii to Portland in regards to living conditions, mostly the unkind weather, is not going to be easy, though. And I’d bet that Stutzmann knows this in advance and it’s a testament of how he’s eager to get his foot into the coaching door.

    Like everyone else here at WB I, too, wish him the best.

  174. Ralph August 2, 2009 10:50 pm

    now we’ve got another recruiter to worry about. Rather than the JC route, PSU could be a good alternative for the locals for fb and an education.

  177. SJ Bobkins August 3, 2009 2:41 am

    I have to take a moment and compliment you all. I have long been impressed with how well you all know the players as individuals and how you support them in an unusually positive way. Today with the news on a GA moving onto a staff position at Portland State, I saw an outpouring of gratitude and support for the coach. I’ve read about the meetings of the ST board group and I think it’s wonderful that you enjoy each other. Your enthusiasm and the very personal way you support the team are incredible. I have been a lurker from Phoenix for a couple of years, posting once in a while when I have something to say. I have followed the Rainbows since the early 70’s, and I’ve seen most of the road games while they were in the “big” WAC, prior to the split, and a few since. I played at ASU, but I love football and find myself spending more time keeping up with Hawaii than any school. Many of the reasons are due to you all.
    I have been treated with respect and have had other posters get back to me asking questions about my life and background, I appreciate the interest. This group differs from any I read or have been part of, you are very kind to each other, and your support for the coaches and players is unconditional. My hat’s off to all of you. SJ

    No Ginlack this season!

    Brysen Ginlack, who started five games last season at guard and tackle, will redshirt this season to focus on personal matters. After that, he will have one season of eligibility remaining.

    Good Morning Tsaikos!!

    Can’t wait for practices to start, only a few days away.

    Read the article on Bryson Ginlack. I hope he is able to take care of his personal business then come back next year.

    good note about the sept 26th weekend. the truth shall set you free is all i can say for everyone else out there.

    we wish coach craig the best of luck; i have known craig for years, and he was one of the most respected coaches that the beast ever played for. he is a class guy and Glanville and company are getting a steal.

    regarding my earlier comment, it is what it is……life goes on.

    happy bday to Rob25, enjoy!

    Sorry to hear about Brysen Ginlack. Can’t afford to take too many hits on the offensive line.

  186. djmitcho August 3, 2009 5:56 am

    WAC reprimands Coach Mack:

    The Western Athletic Conference has reprimanded University of Hawai’i head football coach Greg McMackin for comments he made last week during the WAC’s annual football media preview in Salt Lake City. His comments included a gay slur that he used while discussing the University of Notre Dame football team.

    In addition to the reprimand, McMackin has been warned that any further violations of the WAC Sportsmanship Code will result in an automatic one-game suspension, at the minimum.

    Aloha Kakahiaka!

    SJ Bobkins- thanks for the good vibes!!! Please post more often – nice to have another perspective here.

    Mahalo for the info Tombo Ahi.

    btw- I got a very nice email reply from Coach Mack.
    One snap a clear…
    Let’s go, Warriors!!!!

    Bess is one of the punt returners in Miami’s camp.

    Davone Bess, Brian Hartline, Ted Ginn Jr., Chris Williams are the guys fielding punts. Surprising Anthony Armstong isn’t getting work there.

    Davone Bess just made a nice one handed catch during position drills. He’s bigger but hasn’t lost much range.

  191. Garret August 3, 2009 6:44 am

    Another nice mention of Bess.

    Davone Bess made a nice one-handed catch of a poorly thrown pass. Might Bess actually have better hands than Greg Camarillo?

  192. Garret August 3, 2009 6:46 am

    Nice mentions of UH in CBS Sports’ review of the decade in college football.

    If someone told you at the beginning of this century that Hawaii would soon play in New Orleans, in the Sugar Bowl, led by a Heisman finalist, you would have said they had one too many Hurricanes.

    • In 2004, Timmy Chang became the game’s all-time leading passer.

    • In 2005, he was succeeded by the game’s No. 4 leading passer, Colt Brennan.

    Brysen “Bula” ( Fijian for Hello) Ginlack,
    is already working hard @ practicing daily with the team, and @ Football camp, credits are good to go and he is excited about next year.
    It’s a good year to reflect, rejuvenate and re-group for “Bula”…
