Shoji says future at UH hinges on new AD search

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -  In most jobs, success usually equates to security.

And when you talk job stability at UH-Manoa, no one should feel more secure than Women's volleyball coach Dave Shoji.

But that's not necessarily the case.

After wrapping up his 40th season with the Rainbow Wahine over the weekend, Shoji said Wednesday the instability within the Manoa athletics department concerns him.

Many fans of the volleyball program have wondered if this would be Shoji's final season as the Bows head coach.

But, Shoji says there are unforeseen personal reasons that have kept him from walking away.

Some of the indecisiveness is centered around who UH hires as athletics director.

"I think all coaches have a little bit of well, 'let's take a wait and see,' when a new AD comes because ADs like to have their own people," Shoji said. "So that's often the case and I'm not so worried about that. I'm worried about other people in this department and someone to come in and clean house would be something that I wouldn't want to see, but that's something I kind of want to wait and see."

Current AD Ben Jay announced yesterday he'll be resigning from his position.
