Chad Kauha'aha'a hired as Utah's DL Coach

Feb. 3, 2011
Former Utah defensive end Chad Kauha'aha'a (pronounced cow-ha-a-ha-a) is returning to his alma mater as the defensive line coach. Kauha'aha'a, a second-team all-Western Athletic Conference selection as a senior in 1996, has spent the last two seasons as the defensive line coach at Utah State.
His hiring coincides with some other moves within the Utah staff. Head coach Kyle Whittingham announced today that new offensive coordinator Norm Chow will also coach the tight ends, while Dave Schramm takes over at running back--a position he managed during his first four years at Utah (2005-08). Aaron Alford, a Ute assistant since 2007 and the running backs coach for the last two seasons, moves into an administrative role as the director of high school relations. The rest of Utah's offensive staff has Aaron Roderick beginning his seventh year with the receivers, Brian Johnson coaching the quarterbacks for the second year and Tim Davis taking over the offensive line.
"Chad Kauha'aha'a was a very tough, physical football player and he brought that mentality into the coaching profession," said Whittingham, who was the defensive coordinator during Kauha'aha'a's last three years at Utah. "He has developed into a very good coach with a passion and energy for the game of football."
As for the position moves on the offensive side of the ball, Whittingham had this to say: "We took our time re-positioning the offensive staff and made sure that we got everybody into the roles we felt were best for the program. Aaron Alford did a nice job with our running backs, and the cornerbacks before that, but as the director of high school relations, he will fill a critical role for us in our move to the Pac-12."
