Advertiser Staff

University of Hawai'i-Manoa Chancellor Virginia Hinshaw will chair a nine-member search committee to recommend a new athletic director, the school announced today.

The previous AD, Herman Frazier, was dismissed last month.

In addition to Hinshaw, the other members are: Debra Ishii, assistant to the chancellor; Mitchell Kaaialii, assistant vice president, First Hawaiian Bank; Dee Jay Mailer, CEO Kamehameha Schools; Don Murphy, owner Murphy's Bar & Grill; Peter Nicholson, English professor and UH faculty representative; Dave Shoji, women's volleyball coach; Christina Stidman, president, Associated Students of UH-Manoa; and John Tsui, chair of Towne Realty Development.

Kaaialii is a former UH offensive lineman (1989-91).

"The committee will recommend the best possible candidate to serve as our director of athletics," Hinshaw said in a press release.

The committee's first meeting is next week, the school said.
