Oregon State defensive coordinator Mark Banker is interviewing for the head coaching job at Hawaii today, according to the Honolulu Advertiser.
Texas assistant head coach Duane Akina and Baylor associate head coach Brian Norwood are scheduled to meet with the six-member search/advisory committee. They were scheduled to arrive in town Saturday.
Jacksonville Jaguars offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter will interview by Skype. Utah offensive coordinator Norm Chow has been invited to interview.
Banker was quoted in the article: “It’s like we never left. I really like people and culture here.”
Banker was an assistant coach at Hawaii in 1995 and has been the OSU recruiter for Hawaii, so he’s familiar with the area and people.
He also promised entertaining offense, saying “We’re in the entertainment biz.”
