Nakamura officially in as KSM head football coach
April 11, 2013 - Robert Collias
Here is the start to my story on Cody Nakamura, 26, getting the job as Kamehameha Maui head football coach (we have already received several letters on the subject since this story was in Wednesday's paper):
Cody Nakamura's first call after being told he will be the third head football coach in Kamehameha Schools Maui history was to his lifelong friend Kaluka Maiava.
"He was very excited, he knows what I have planned," the 26-year-old Nakamura said Tuesday of his conversation with his former Baldwin teammate who recently signed with the Oakland Raiders. "He always had my back in everything that I tried to do as far as coaching, so he's excited. He set a few goals for me, a couple challenges. And, of course, he's going to be helping out, so I look forward to working with him."
Nakamura, a 2005 Baldwin graduate who was a standout tight end at Weber State before graduating in 2010, has plenty in mind for the Upcountry school.
