Today’s column is about the University of Hawaii’s crazy way of doing things, including its habit of rewarding employees it is dissatisfied with by giving them lots of money. There’s a twist this time, as Jim Donovan is “cleared of wrongdoing” but moved from athletic director to another job that will pay close to the same six-figure annual salary.
Now that it’s official that Donovan will no longer be the athletic director it’s time to find a new leader for the state’s largest intercollegiate sports program.
When Donovan got the job in 2008, he was chosen over other interviewees including Carl, Clapp, Rockne Freitas, Marilyn Moniz-Kahoohanohano and Bob Wagner.
Who should be considered this time around?
