Rockne Freitas, the University of Hawaii's acting athletic director, said he will not be a candidate for the permanent position.

"I'm not going to apply," Freitas said today. "Definitely not."

Freitas, UH vice president for student affairs and university and community relations, has been serving as acting AD since July 11 when Jim Donovan was placed on indefinite paid administrative leave. UH announced Sunday that Donovan would move to an as-yet-unamed position attached to the Manoa Chancellor's office. Tom Apple, the chancellor, said Monday that UH will conduct a national search for Donovan's replacement.

Freitas said, "the (AD) job is a challenging position and I like challenges, but I'm a vice president. I want to (remain) a vice president."

Freitas, a former All-Pro NFL lineman, had sought the AD job in 2008. He served as an associate AD at UH in the 1980s
