Maui’s Morimoto named UH Director of Football Operations

Jimmy Morimoto, a Baldwin High School graduate and former head football coach, has been named Director of Football Operations for the University of Hawaii.

Morimoto confirmed that today is his first day on the job. He has held similar positions for Nevada-Las Vegas and most recently Fresno State.

Morimoto said his duties would include “daily operations of the team, you’re kind of the coach’s right-hand man. He’s going to make decisions and you have got to make it happen.”

Morimoto was Fresno State’s first director of player personnel for the last two seasons after he held a similar position at UNLV, where he started as an assistant video coordinator when he left Baldwin in 2007.
