Hawaii AD resigns after tough 2-year tenure
HONOLULU (AP) Hawaii athletic director Ben Jay resigned Tuesday after a two-year tenure marked by failed efforts to stop the university's athletic department from losing money.
Jay cited family reasons for resigning at a news conference with University of Hawaii interim Chancellor Robert Bley. The resignation will be effective at the end of June.
Bley said he'll have a process in place by the end of January to begin looking for a replacement.
Bley said Jay was not being forced out.
Before he announced his resignation, Jay announced that football coach Norm Chow would be retained after a 4-9 season.
