No review of applications yet for UH Manoa Athletics Director

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The search for a new Athletics Director at UH Manoa continues.  However, the university has still not begun the process of reviewing applications for the position.  According to the school's online employment page, review of applications was supposed to begin on September 21st.

A university spokesperson told Hawaii News Now review will begin "as soon as [a] contract with [the] external search firm has been approved and executed."

The reason the search advisory committee cannot progress is because "initial culling [of applications] will be done by the external search firm, once a contract has been approved and executed."

However, the school is expecting the reviewing of contracts to begin within days.

The university is still "hopeful" that the deadline of early November to present a finalist or finalists to UH Manoa Chancellor Tom Apple can be met.

The total number of applicants is now over 95.
