HONOLULU – University of Hawai’i head coach Timmy Chang announced the hiring of Jeff Reinebold as director of player development.
Reinebold returns to Mānoa with four decades of coaching experience both collegiately and professionally, including more than 20 years in the Canadian Football League. He spent three seasons with the Rainbow Warriors from 2005-07 coaching the specials teams and defensive line.
Reinebold earned a reputation as a top-notch recruiter and developer of talent in his first stint with the Rainbow Warriors. Two of his proteges – Ikaika Alama-Francis and Melila Purcell – were selected in the 2007 NFL Draft while another – Lawrence Wilson – earned a free agent contract. He was named among Rivals.com Top 20 recruiters and was the only non-Power 5 coach to make the list.
