UH coach Jones has decided on QB

Associated Press

HONOLULU – University of Hawaii football coach June Jones has decided on a

starting quarterback for the Sept. 9 season opener against Portland State.

But Jones said he won’t announce the decision until next week – even to

his players.

There were eight candidates for the job when Hawaii entered

training camp two weeks ago. The list appears to have been trimmed to Mike

Harrison, Nick Rolovich and Timmy Chang.

Harrison was Dan Robinson’s

backup at quarterback last season. Robinson graduated in December.

Rolovich is a transfer from City College of San Francisco and Chang graduated

from St. Louis School in June.

Jones said Monday he’s delaying his

announcement because the Warriors do not play this weekend. They were scheduled

to open against Texas on Saturday, but the Longhorns backed out of the game

earlier this year.

Jones said experience and reputation did not factor

into his starting quarterback choice and the job was awarded solely on “who

completes” passes.

The Hawai’i quarterback list appears to have been

trimmed to three players

Mike Harrison, So., 6-1, 206


Rolovich, Jr. transfer, 6-1, 197

Timmy Chang, Fr., 6-2, 190
