Ulima Afoa out as Saint Louis AD, school president Kirimitsu confirms

Advertiser Staff

Saint Louis School president Walter Kirimitsu confirmed this morning that Ulima Afoa will be replaced as the Crusaders' athletic director.

"We are going to make a change and hope to begin the (hiring) process as soon as possible," Kirimitsu told The Advertiser, adding that exact details of Afoa's exit are still being finalized. "Ulima is a good guy; he is a gentleman, he is my friend, and the reason (for the change) has nothing to do with his performance or wins and losses. This is just about the management and administration wanting to go in a different direction."
Kirimitsu said the status of all existing coaches, including football coach John Hao, will be determined by the new athletic director.
Afoa, a former standout football player at Saint Louis and San Diego State University and a longtime college and high school coach, has been the Crusaders' AD since June 2008.
