Fred, Don’t know if it’s posted as associate or assistant caoch. Shoji said it was going to be up Friday but I don’t see it.
May be up Monday. They will have it up for 3 days. He said he didn’t have any calls about the position as of 4 p.m. Friday.
Ah Mow-Santos seems to be the leading candidate. She would be a terrific get. Someone asked about her being vocal enough. She wasn’t on 3 Olympics teams by being quiet. She speaks when she needs to and if she is part of the recruiting … 3 time Olympian and All-American setter. pretty good credentials.
Jen Carey told me she is happy at Cal and won’t be applying but thinks it’s a great job for anyone who gets it. said UH molded her for where she is today.
Allen Allen may throw his hat in the ring. he applied for the men’s top job that Wade got.
But my feeling is the Wahine would need a female … hate that it might come down to gender .. for this spot.
Asked Shoji if he had any directives about hiring a female and he said he hasn’t. Of course, it would be illegal if he had.
But I do think for a women’s sport they likely would be looking for a female on staff. just my opinion
Since it has to be a quick hire I’m guessing they go for someone on island … or someone who has ties here that could afford to make the move back. S. Wong is a prime example. having a home here and local ties.
Ryan Tsuji said he isn’t applying. Think he’s going to be working with Hawaii News Now. Someone asked about Tita Ahuna. Another qualified candidate with really good credentials. but she’s been out of coaching for years and really happy with her virtual school.
I’m expecting a hire by Friday.
