Nevada coordinator Nick Rolovich takes over at Hawaii

Hawaii has hired Nevada offensive coordinator Nick Rolovich as its new head coach.

The former Rainbow Warriors quarterback will be introduced at a news conference Monday, according to a release from the school.

"Nick is a Warrior at heart and someone I know our fans will support. He understands what it means to be a Warrior having played and coached here and what affect a winning program has with this community," Hawaii athletic director David Matlin said in a statement. "I have no doubt we picked the right man for this job. The future is bright for Hawai'i football."

Rolovich has been Nevada's offensive coordinator since 2012, and was Hawaii's offensive coordinator prior to that.

"Being raised a Warrior, there is a great sense of excitement and responsibility about bringing back a winning tradition to Hawai'i football," Rolovich said. "I can't wait to get started. I'm honored to be selected to run this program which has made me into the man I am today."

Nevada (6-5) finishes the season at San Diego State on Saturday. Rolovich's Wolf Pack offense ranks 73rd in the nation this season at 388 yards per game.
