Hawaii Fires Athletics Director

University of Hawaii athletics director Herman Frazier has been fired after failing to re-sign football coach June Jones.

The university issued a brief statement saying the move was made "in the best interest of the athletics program." It came a day after Jones, the winningest coach in school history, accepted a five-year deal to become SMU's head coach

The details of the termination agreement with Frazier must be finalized and require the approval of the Board of Regents.

Associate athletics director Carl Clapp will serve as acting director until Frazier's replacement is hired. Clapp will handle the day-to-day operations, as well as work with administrators to secure a new head football coach.
