Some of you surely think Dick Tomey’s too old to be a productive assistant coach for the University of Hawaii football team at age 72.
But I’m here to tell you he’s a young 72. He’s physically fit, and he’s very sharp mentally.
Special teams is a great spot for him … when Tomey was UH’s head coach in the ’70s and ’80s, special teams were a consistent strength of the team. Half the battle of coaching special teams is motivation, and Tomey’s an outstanding motivator.
