Ron Lee resigns from UH; Mouse will apply

May 24th, 2010

Ron Lee said he has resigned as a UH assistant football coach. The resignation goes into effect June 15.

He actually made his decision in February, but was asked to remain on the staff through spring practice, which concluded April 30.

Lee said he has some "options,"and expects to still continue coaching in the future.

But he said that after nine years under June Jones and two years as Greg McMackin's offensive coordinator "it was time to move on. I'm going to miss it."

Lee said his decision was not based on his reassignment, from offensive coordinator to assistant coach two months ago, or ceding the play-calling duties to Nick Rolovich early last season.

"Nothing to do with that," he said, adding the adjustment was what "I went through last year, kind of."

McMackin said: "He's a legend in Hawai‘i, and he's done a great job here We wish him well."

Mouse Davis, the father of the modern run-and-shoot offense, told the Warrior Beat he is  "absolutely"interested in rejoining the UH coaching staff. Davis said he will apply after the job notification is posted.

Coach Greg McMackin gave the Warrior Beat a tour of the new UH football offices today (the unveiling was earlier this month.)

As one coach noted, it was amazing that after a three-year wait, it took, perhaps, about a couple of months to complete the offices and meeting rooms.

The conference rooms — for the offensive and defensive meetings — are straight out of an expo: shades that offer privacy; screens that descend from the ceiling, high-tech projectors.

I took photos, but I forgot the connector at home, so I can't post them until tonight.

Today was the first day of volunteer weight training for the football Warriors.

As part of the domino effect, Rainbow Wahine basketball coach Dana Takahara-Dias inherited  Coach Mack's old office.

Happy birthday to Allen Allen and C.J. Allen-Jones.
