About Harvey Hyde

Harvey Hyde graduated from the University of Redlands, began his coaching career at Pasadena City College in 1970 and was head coach (1979-1981). He then transitioned to head coach at UNLV (1982-1985) where his record was 26-19-1. The Rebels had unprecedented success in 1984 with star quarterback Randall Cunningham. UNLV went 11-2, won the Big West Conference title and defeated Toledo in the California Bowl.

Hyde, at one point, was a candidate for a head coaching position at Oregon State.

In 1990, Hyde was George Allen’s associate head coach, recruiting coordinator and running backs coach at Long Beach State. Hyde recruited future NFL star Terrell Davis.

Hyde does a sports radio show for KSHP-AM 1400 in Las Vegas, KDWN in Las Vegas, and KMET in the Inland Empire, that originates from Brad Otton’s Settebello Restaurant (in Pasadena). He is also part of the pregame show for USC and broadcasts USC Review at 7 PM Wednesday nights on KLAA-AM 830.

Quarterbacks’ Brick at Rose Bowl

Did you know that your Pasadena Quarterbacks purchased ‘a brick’ as our contribution to the Rose Bowl upgrade? Here’s what it looks like:


You can check it out in person: The brick is located at Gate “A” (the main south entrance to the stadium), at the northwest corner of the brick garden. Look for the City of Pasadena section. Our brick is in the bottom row, and under the word City.

A fitting tribute to the City, Rose Bowl, and our presence in both.
