85 people apply to be Univ. of Hawaii Women’s basketball coach

Darn! I am not one of them. From the Honolulu Advertiser-

The University of Hawai’i has received 85 applications for the position of head women’s basketball coach, athletic director Jim Donovan announced yesterday.

The job became vacant when UH released Jim Bolla, its coach the past five seasons, on April 6 citing cause. He had two years remaining on a contract that was believed to pay approximately $120,000 per year.

Bolla filed a wrongful termination suit April 13 and is seeking reinstatement and damages.

Meanwhile, April 24 was the deadline for applications for the position. Applicants will be screened by a five-member search committee chaired by UH’s senior woman’s administrator, Marilyn Moniz-Kaho’ohano-hano.

A decision is expected this month. April 15 was the first day that schools could begin signing recruits.

I haven’t heard of a Division I school filling a job position in this fashion before. How about anyone else?
