The University of Hawaii announced some changes to their football coaching staff on Monday. Kurt Gouveia was hired to be the team’s new defensive assistant coach in charge of outside linebackers, and former Utah Utes quarterback Jordan Wynn was promoted to quarterbacks coach.
Hawaii head coach Norm Chow issued a statement about the moves:
I’m awfully excited that Kurt and Jordan are now apart of our full-time staff. Jordan was put into a very unusual circumstance last year as a graduate assistant and he responded like an experienced coach. He did a terrific job call most of the plays during the latter half of the season and he did a terrific job. He has a great relationship with our quarterbacks and has a bright future. He understands the game beyond his years. Kurt has a tremendous history with the state as both a player and coach and the experience he has gained at the highest level will no doubt help our defensive staff (Hawaii Athletics).
Gouveia spent 13 seasons in the NFL. Wynn joined the Hawaii staff last season, helping quarterback Sean Schroeder throw for 2,960 yards and 28 touchdowns.
