Hawaii’s Chang a SMU Graduate Assistant


Under the tutelage of then-Hawaii head coach June Jones and his “Run and Shoot” offense, QB Timmy Chang set a host of FBS passing records in the early 2000s. These days, Chang is back under Jones’ wing as he tries to forge a career as a coach.

Now 31, Chang is entering his second season as a graduate assistant on Jones’ staff at SMU. This comes following a four-year pro career spent in the NFL, NFL Europe and CFL (2005-2008), after which Chang retired from playing and returned to Hawaii to complete his bachelor’s degree.

With the Warriors, Chang was a four-year starter (2000–2004) and spearheaded the program’s resurgence after several down years. Upon leaving school, he held since-broken FBS records for career completions (1,388), yards (17,072) and passing TDs (117). He still holds the FBS records for pass attempts (2,436) and interceptions (80).
