Record-setting former University of Hawaii quarterback Timmy Chang is joining Southern Methodist as a graduate assistant coach in July.
Chang who was a star at Saint Louis School and also played professionally in the NFL and CFL, will be reunited with his UH head coach June Jones and quarterbacks coach Dan Morrison. Jones is now the Mustangs head coach and Morrison an assistant.
“Last year when I got my bachelor’s degree I let Coach Morrison know that I’d be interested if something became available there,” Chang said in a phone interview Friday night. “I got a message from him last week and talked with him and Coach Jones.”
Chang said he’s excited about the opportunity, but also has some mixed feelings because he was set to be the offensive coordinator at Mililani High School this season, and had already begun working with the Trojans. Chang said he will continue his youth clinics until he leaves for Dallas in July
