Hawaii AD resigns after tough 2-year tenure

BY foxsports • December 9, 2014

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.
