The University of Hawaii Rainbow Warrior football team has parted ways with offensive coordinator Aaron Price.  His departure comes on the first day of fall camp and less than four weeks before Hawaii's season opening game against national power USC.

A source who asked not to be identified told KITV about Price's departure.

Price was hired in February to fill the vacancy left when Tommy Lee retired after the 2012 season.

Price joined the the Rainbow Warriors in time for spring practice in April.  In addition to his duties as offensive coordinator, he served as wide receivers coach.

According to the source, head coach Norm Chow does not plan to fill the vacancy immediately.  Instead, Chow intends to serve as offensive coordinator throughout the 2013 season.

First year graduate assistant coach Luke Matthews, a former wide receiver at Utah, will assume the responsibility of coaching wide receivers.

Fellow graduate assistant Jordan Wynn, in his second year with the Rainbows Warriors, will coach quarterbacks.  Chow will oversee both Matthews and Wynn.
