UH convenes search committee for women's hoops coach

By Ferd Lewis


The University of Hawaii said it has convened a four-member "search advisory committee" to begin the screening process for selecting a new head coach for the women's basketball team.

UH said Gay Satsuma, Al Chee, Marilyn Moniz-Kaho'ohanohano and Carl Clapp will assist athletic director Jim Donovan in the search for a successor to Dana Takahara-Dias.

Takahara-Dias was fired March 7th after three years on the job.

Satsuma is the associate director of the Center for Japanese Studies at UH while Chee is chairman-elect of 'Ahahui Koa Aneunue, the athletic department booster club, and a Chevron executive.

Moniz-Kaho'ohanohano and Clapp are associate athletic directors at UH.

No timetable for the selection was announced.

Where are students during games? If you don't support during season you don't get a seat at the table during the offseason.

unless we are hiring a coach from Japan, what the heck does Gay Satsuma know about basketball. these committees are ridiculous. JD should just pick someone on his own. that way he owns the hiring and the responsibility of the coache's performance.

I think JD will choose on his own in a sense. But mind you Norm Chow wasnt his choice it was pushed by the regents(finally one decision i agree with). This Asian studies teacher is there just to justify the their had been a board put together for this decision.
