In 2000, Thomas' last year in Lubbock, he worked with current Hawaii head coach Greg McMackin, who was the Red Raiders' defensive coordinator from 2000-2002.

Inoke Funaki - former Hawaii QB, Funaki signed on as a graduate assistant with the Warriors for the fall. No experience and just finished his playing career, but at this point in the year, options are relatively limited.

Following his playing career, Margerum spent three years as an assistant coach at the Hawaiian Prep Academy, then coached the wide receivers at Hawaii in 1996 before becoming head coach at Menlo College.
