New UH Athletics Director to be announced Friday

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

After months of searching for a new Athletics Director, the University of Hawaii is prepared to announce a selection. 

The Chancellor's office notified the media that after meeting with the two finalists for the position, UH Mānoa Chancellor Tom Apple "is in the process of performing due diligence on this very important decision."

The University stated it is hoping to make the announcement of a selection Friday December 7th.

No press conference is planned.

The two finalists are Ben Jay and Solomon "Solly" Fulp.

Jay, the Ohio State Senior Associate Athletics Director, is also the Chief Financial Officer in Columbus, overseeing a budget of more than $100 million per year.

Fulp is the Deputy Director of Athletics at Cal-Berkeley and currently oversees marketing and business development efforts at the school.

Apple will name either Jay or Fulp as the replacement for Jim Donovon who was reassigned in July following a botched Stevie Wonder concert.
