Sad End To A Great Coach

By Brad Hubbard | @bradhubbard

Norm Chow's last PCNorm Chow was relieved of his duties last week as the head football coach at Hawaii after a 58-7 loss at home to Air Force. He finished with a record of 10-36 in just under four seasons with the Rainbow Warriors. It’s a sad ending for a man who has had so much success.

Fox Sports Bruce Feldman probably said it best when he sent the following tweet the day Chow was fired:

Chow is a legendary coach at the collegiate level. He helped develop quarterbacks like NFL Hall of Famer Steve Young, Heisman Trophy winners Ty Detmer, Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart. He won multiple awards and three National Titles during his assistant coaching stops. It’s hard to see such a good coach not succeed during his first (and probably only) collegiate head coaching job.

The reason we bring Chow up is because he was the subject of the first ever post on this blog. We believed that his offensive philosophy was a bad fit for Hawaii and that theory proved to be correct. We wish it wasn’t but it was.

We wish Norm Chow the best. We’re sure he’ll be back coaching (if he wants) somewhere out west where he has had so much success.
