EMORY, Va. – Emory & Henry football coach Curt Newsome has settled on a recruiting coordinator and appears to have found a new offensive mastermind, but the offseason makeover continues for the veteran coach.
On Tuesday afternoon, Newsome announced that he has offered the job of offensive coordinator to former University of Hawaii quarterback Timmy Chang.
“We still have to get everything approved, but I couldn’t be any more excited to have Timmy join us,” Newsome said. “He’s a very bright young coach with a great reputation.”
The 34-year-old Chang, who holds several NCAA Division I passing records, attended the same high school in Honolulu (Saint Louis School) as 2014 Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota, former E&H offensive coordinator Craig Stutzmann and current major college prospect Tua Tagovailoa.
After tryouts with three NFL teams, Chang played in NFL Europe and the Canadian Football League before serving under offensive innovator June Jones at Southern Methodist University and working as the offensive coordinator at Jackson State University the past two years.
