Kauhaahaa appears headed to Wisconsin; O'Brien, Rivers are both done in the MIL
December 20, 2012 - Robert Collias
While former Baldwin head coach Chad Kauhaahaa is reportedly headed to Wisconsin, where he will rejoin good friend and coaching buddy Gary Andersen, two football head jobs appear open in the MIL.
Kauhaahaa and Andersen coached together at Utah State, where Andersen just led the Aggies to an 11-2 season that ended with a win over Toledo on Saturday in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. Andersen is taking over at Wisconsin for Brett Bielema, who is moving to Arkansas. Kauhaahaa has spent the last couple seasons at his alma mater, Utah. He is expected to be the new defensive line coach at Wisconsin, the same position he has held with the Utes.
These coaching moves will have effects on a trio of MIL alums, Elvis Kamana-Matagi, Mitchell Loewen and Pasoni Tasini, a Utah commit who spent his freshman season at Snow (Utah) Junior College and plans to take a two-year Mormon mission. Kauhaahaa not being around any more could complicate things for Tasini, when he is ready to join the Utes.
In semi-related news, sources have told me that Kamehameha Maui coach Kevin O'Brien told his players two days ago that he has resigned. That is not surprising considering new AD Blane Gaison, who takes over Jan. 2, will probably want to hire his own guy. Also, Clarence Rivers' job after one season at King Kekaulike was listed as available in the Sports Bulletin Board in Sunday's paper.
