Hawaii’s coaching search isn’t over yet. Former UH head coach June Jones has reportedly turned down an offer to coach the Rainbow Warriors again.

The news comes from college football insider Brett McMurphy.

The news comes as a surprise after Jones expressed interest in coaching at Hawaii again.

“It’s heartbreaking to see what the condition of the program is right now,” Jones recently told KHON-2. “That’s why I’m interested in talking with Dave (Matlin) and talking with whoever is making the decisions. Hopefully, I get that opportunity to do that. It’s a unique situation that I’ve done one time, and I know I can do it again. We’ll see what happens. Hopefully, I get an opportunity to do that.”

Jones is Hawaii’s winningest coach in program history, going 76-41 before leaving for SMU.

It will be interesting to see where Hawaii turns as the search continues. Bruce Feldman previously identified Timmy Chang, a former Hawaii quarterback currently on staff at Colorado State, as a top candidate for the job.
