Former junior varsity coach Guy Kaniho has been named varsity boys volleyball coach at Kamehameha, athletic director Erv Kau announced yesterday.

"I'm extremely excited and ready to accept the challenges that come with the job," Kaniho said in a statement. "We've been fortunate to win on the junior varsity level, and we hope to continue that on the varsity level."
Kaniho is a former University of Hawai'i volleyball player and a 1986 Kamehameha graduate. He earned a bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of Hawai'i. He is a safety coordinator for The Queen's Medical Center.
