Norm Chow said he won’t be hiring any new coaches until the new year.
He said he has interviewed some interested candidates, as well as spoken with a couple of members from the 2011 UH coaching staff. But he said he won’t make any decisions until after speaking with more coaches and reviewing formal applications.
Chow arrived in El Paso yesterday to coach Utah’s offense in Saturday’s Sun Bowl. He said he hopes to have the “majority” of his staff in place by the second week in January.
One coach who will not be on his staff is Rich Miano, who served as interim head coach after Greg McMackin reached a release agreement with UH. Miano is a former UH coach who played 11 seasons in the NFL and coached 13 years at UH. The Warriors’ 2011 coaching staff is on contract through March 31, 2012. The exception is Mouse Davis, who appears to have retired from UH.
