In this episode our special guest is Rich Miano! Rich is the executive director of the Hula Bowl. Rich gives us great information on the Hula Bowl and the future of the game on live TV! The Hula Bowl is a post-season college football all-star game held annually in Hawaii, usually in January. First played in 1947, it was held annually until 2008. It was revived following the 2019 season, with the first Hula Bowl in 12 years played on January 26, 2020, at Aloha Stadium in the Halawa district of Honolulu. During its history, the game has also been played at Honolulu Stadium, and at War Memorial Stadium on the island of Maui. Miano was a walk-on for the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors college football team in 1981, and became an all-Western Athletic Conference defensive back in 1983 and 1984. Miano was selected in the sixth round of the 1985 NFL Draft by the New York Jets, where he played five seasons. After missing the entire 1990 season with a knee injury, Miano went to the Philadelphia Eagles where he played four seasons. In 1995, his final season in the NFL, he played for the Atlanta Falcons. Miano accrued a 19–4 record in two seasons as head coach of the Kaiser Cougars, including leading them to a state championship in 2013, when the team defeated Kauai in the D-II final, 17–7. In July 2014, Miano was hired as a color analyst for Hawaii football games broadcast on OC Sports. He was named the executive director of the 2020 Hula Bowl.
