Timmy Chang to SMU

May 18th, 2012

Record-setting former University of Hawaii quarterback Timmy Chang is joining Southern Methodist as a graduate assistant coach in July.

Chang who was a star at Saint Louis School and also played professionally in the CFL, will be reunited with his UH head coach June Jones and quarterbacks coach Dan Morrison. Jones is now the Mustangs head coach and Morrison an assistant.

“Last year when I got my bachelor’s degree I let Coach Morrison know that I’d be interested if something became available there,” Chang said in a phone interview Friday night. “I got a message from him last week and talked with him and Coach Jones.”

Chang said he’s excited about the opportunity, but also has some mixed feelings because he was set to be the offensive coordinator at Mililani High School this season, and had already begun working with the Trojans.

Chang said he will continue his youth clinics until he leaves for Dallas in July.

    Still remember when Timmy was the QB here and at St. Louis. Interestingly, Timmy came very close to being Iolani’s QB when Iolani tried to recruit him out of St. Louis in 8th grade, saying that Timmy would take Iolani’s FB and BB teams to new levels (Timmy was also a star basketball player at St. Louis and would’ve played three or four years at Iolani).

    Good to hear. The all time interception leader can impart some of his valuable choking knowledge at SMU.

    Seriously? June, as an alum I can’t express how disgusted I am still having you on our campus let alone bringing another one of your flunkie friends

  6. Kaneohe Resident:

    Just wondering.

  7. Kalani:

    Sounds like mana is just another hater Good Luck Timmy!!!

    Mana you probably was just a water boy all your life that’s why you just hate no love for real athletes!!!

  8. K-Bay:

    Actually you got to be pretty good to be on the field enough to throw that many INTs (along with catches, yards, TDs, and Wins…) but half and full-empty types might never know …

    Tim, Good Luck turning all those hours of studying and prep (class and football) into a good to great career — and enjoy the impact on so many young lives …

    At least @ SMU you’ll get to see more of what it looks like when people back up their talk with effort (and money and facilities, etc.)
