UH WR coach Craig Stutzmann is expected to leave for Portland State

HA Note: “Hawai’i assistant receiver coach Craig Stutzmann is expected to accept a football coaching job at Portland State. Stutzmann has an in-person interview with PSU head coach Jerry Glanville today in Portland.”

HA Note: “As a standout slotback, Stutzmann is eighth on the UH career list with 177 receptions in 46 games. Although he is classified as a graduate assistant, Stutzmann is in charge of the Warrior receivers.”

About how he will have to leave Hawaii to take the Portland State opportunity, Stutzmann said:
“I love Hawai’i, and I love the program, but at this time in my life, it would be beneficial for me to take this opportunity.” (HA)

HA Note: “Stutzmann and his wife, Briana, have a 2-month-old son. A graduate assistant receives tuition and a small stipend. The PSU coaching job pays about $30,000 annually. But the position comes with benefits — a UH graduate assistant does not receive medical benefits — and Oregon does not have a sales tax.”

About how he cannot turn down the opportunity for a full-time coaching position, Stutzmann said:
“It’s a fulltime position. I have a family. This would be a way to get my foot in the door. The ultimate dream would be to start off at UH. Unfortunately, there’s nothing available right now.” (HA)

About how his brother Billy Ray Stutzmann will remain at UH, Craig Stutzmann said:
“I talked to my brother. He’s going to stay. This is a great fit for him.” (HA)
