Daboll was recently given the role after an internal promotion, but Hoomanawanui said that he has already done a good job with the team so deserves the position.
"For us having a new position coach in Daboll, he's done a great job," Hooman told the club's official website. "It's a little different style than I'm used to, but very energetic, very in-your-face.
"He's going to get the best out of you. He's been around for a long time and coached a lot of great players, so we're all excited about having him."
Hoomanawanui started 10 games for the Patriots last season.
