When the late J.D. Morgan chose Terry Donahue to be the football coach at UCLA in the spring of 1976, it was a close call. He narrowed the field to a handful of candidates, and then he went with his instincts. Among the final candidates was Dick Tomey, who was then on the Bruin staff. Tomey stayed at UCLA one more year, serving as Donahue's defensive coordinator, then became the coach at the University of Hawaii.
