Several former University of Hawai’i
football players lamented the direction of the Warriors’ program
under head coach Todd Graham, who was hired
in January 2020.

KHON’s Christian Shimabuku reported RJ
Hollis, Leonard Lee, Darryl McBride Jr., Derek Thomas, Justin Uahinui
and Rod York were among the speakers at a Hawai’i State Senate hearing
on the topic Friday:

“Every single person who provided on-the-record testimony via Zoom on Friday all shared concerns about the
direction of the program under Graham and how the culture of the
program has been gradually lost during his tenure due to how players
have been treated by the current regime. Common themes include a lack
of respect towards players and not seeing eye-to-eye with Graham and
his methods.”

Hawai’i athletic director David Matlin
defended the coach, saying not all of the comments made about him
during the session were true, and Graham answered questions from
state Senators about issues within the program, per Shimabuku.
