Coach walking the sidelines
Nick Rolovich

University of Hawaiʻi head football coach Nick Rolovich has received a two-year extension to his contract, running through the 2022 season. Rolovich’s initial contract expires following the 2020 season.

If UH qualifies for a bowl game under Rolovich in either the 2019 or 2020 seasons, another year will be tacked on to the extension, running through 2023.

“We’re very appreciative of what Nick and his staff have accomplished in his first three seasons,” said UH Mānoa Athletics Director David Matlin. “Nick has elevated our football program with two bowl appearances and this season with the most wins since 2010. He is a great representative of our university and his ‘Live Aloha, Play Warrior’ slogan has resonated throughout the community. We are thrilled to be able to extend his contract and look forward to the next few years of Rainbow Warrior football.“

Rolovich said, “It’s truly an honor to coach at my alma mater, it’s a privilege that many coaches aren’t able to do. I’m thankful to David Matlin and the University of Hawaiʻi administration who gave me my first head coaching opportunity and now to extend my time here. I realize Rainbow Warrior football means a lot to the university community and the state of Hawaiʻi and my staff, student-athletes, and I will continue to work hard to maintain a successful program.“
