It is fitting that for the new chapter in Warrior football, there will be, well, new chapters.
When the Warriors report to training camp on Aug. 1, in addition to playbooks, they will receive a notebook of guidelines. The material was culled from guidelines used at other colleges and in the pros, as well as head coach Norm Chow’s preferences.
To be sure, there will be standards — and non-compliance punishments — focusing on behavior, appearance and attitude. But it won’t just be about law and order. There also will guidelines on setting team and personal goals, as well as an emphasis on academics.
UH already has a code of conduct, and the athletic department has a student-athlete handbook. But the UH football guide book is expected to be more specific.
