Dennis McKnight, the former University of Hawaii assistant football coach, confirmed Thursday that he applied for the vacant Moanalua High head coaching job.

McKnight said he is also going to apply at Kamehameha for the Warriors’ vacant head coaching job when the school begins accepting applications from candidates in the near future.

Moanalua athletic director Joel Kawachi said Thursday that his job search is down to several candidates who are finalists, but he did not name them. He also did not confirm that McKnight was a candidate.


An anonymous source said that one of the Moanalua candidates is former Na Menehune tight end Savaii Eselu.


Former Kahuku coach Reggie Torres and former Kaiser coach Rich Miano both told Hawaii Prep World that that they did not apply for the Moanalua job.


Miano did not rule out a bid for the Kamehameha position.

McKnight played guard for San Diego, Detroit and Philadelphia in the NFL from 1982 to ’92 and was an assistant coach under June Jones at UH in 1999 and 2000 and again in 2006 and 2007. He spent last season as an assistant under departing Kamehameha head coach Doug Cosbie.

    I would hire Coach Reggie Torres. I would not touch Rich Miano with a 100 foot pole.

    Shows how educated you are, the article specifically said that they both told HPW that they both did NOT apply for the job. I’m pretty sure Miano wouldn’t touch you with his pole either.

    Idiot, here is a direct quote from the story, “Miano did not rule out a bid for the Kamehameha position.”

    Where in my post did I say I was referring to the Moanalua job? I said I would not touch Miano with a 100 foot pole. In the story it says Miano would not apply for Moanalua. But the quote above says he did not rule out a bid for the KS job.

    So based on common sense, understanding the English Language, and being able to make a first grade inference, it’s clear I am referring to the Kamehameha School’s position.

    I apologize! I didn’t know that this site had anyone who was so dumb they couldn’t make a first grade inference, so I will reword.

    “SINCE THE STORY BOTH TALKS ABOUT THE MOANALUA FOOTBALL JOB AND THE KAMEHAMEHA SCHOOLS FOOTBALL JOB, AND RICH MIANO IS ONLY INTERESTED (POTENTIALLY) IN THE KS JOB, MY COMMENT SOLELY HAS TO DO WITH THE KS JOB, NOT THE MOHS JOB.”

    Are you that dumb? Did you even read the entire post? The best is when people try to act smart, then point the finger at others for being dumb, but in reality, they are really the dumb one, haha.

    Man, you are so dumb! No wonder you have to copycat my name. You just showed the world (once again) how dumb you are. You are only able to identify that the article talks about Moanalua! HAHAHAHA.

    I guess everytime you visit ESPN or FoxSports and you look at the title of the article, you think it only talks aboute information about the article.

    I guess when you saw the Hue Jackson article on ESPN the other day saying he was interested in coaching Cleveland and the TITLE OF THE ARTICLE said “Jackson Interested In Cleveland”, you probably didn’t notice he also made reference to coaching in New York and Philadelphia. But that article only could be about Cleveland since only the word Cleveland was in the title? HAHAHA

    HAHA, you thought I was talking about Moanalua! Talking about someone being an idiot, then trying to show the word how smart she is, then have it totally backfire in their face, haha!

    Nice one buddy! Now go and finish my laundry before I don’t send you payment this month!

    Thank for making my day, haha.

    Hahahaha, where would you hire Reggie Torres to coach when the article specifically says HE DIDN’T APPLY FOR THE JOB.
    The only idiot here is you. Go get a life and stop living on these boards and acting like so smart. Everyone knows you’re just another idiot that spends all his energy trying to prove your point on a meaningless high school thread. Oh and thanks for the reply, now I’m positive you got some deep issues, but stay positive and keep taking your meds and everything will be fine. Aloha.

    Once again you are unable to make any inferences since you are an idiot. I said I would hire Reggie Torres. It is implied that he isn’t coaching, but I would hire him. And it is noted that I wouldn’t hire Miano.

    Man every time I encounter you I become more dumb. It seems you are like a weed that spreads and everyone in your path gets dumber by the second. Unfortunately, you are so dumb, you cannot get any dumber. I guess that makes you lucky?

    I do have issues, I have to deal with losers like you. Funny thing is I spend like 1-2 mins writing, then you take 1-2 days to reply. And while I am laughing, you are wasting your time. And I will continue to write cuz losers such as yourself will reply. LOL….

    #winning.
