MANOA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The search committee for the next University of Hawaii Athletics Director has officially submitted its recommendation to UH Manoa Chancellor Robert BleyVroman and said an announcement will be made by the end of the month.
BleyVroman started the search for a new Athletics Director in January after the resignation of current AD Ben Jay. Over the past two months, the 18-person committee has reviewed applications, checked references and interviewed candidates.
"I would like to thank the search committee members for their hard work and dedication," said BleyVroman.
"I appreciate their efforts in evaluating the candidates for this extremely critical position, not just for UH but for the entire state. I'm confident that we will be able to name an athletics director that possesses the right combination of executive leadership skills and vision to guide and grow the program through these challenging times."
BleyVroman is now reviewing the information provided and is scheduling interviews. A formal announcement on his selection for Athletics Director will be made by March 31. It will then go before the UH Board of Regents at the April 16 meeting for final approval.
The names of the finalists have not been released.
