It appears that Norm Chow will finally get a chance to run his own program.
Chow, presently the offensive coordinator at Utah, is expected to be named Hawaii's next head coach, according to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.
It would be a homecoming for Chow, 65, a native of Hawaii who has interviewed many times for positions but never been a head coach.
Before coming to Utah last spring, Chow was the offensive coordinator at UCLA, the Tennessee Titans, USC, North Carolina State and BYU.
The Utes' defensive coordinator, Kalani Sitake, also interviewed for the job, as did Oregon State defensive coordinator Mark Banker.
