Hawaii officials announced Tuesday that starting July 1, all the school's men's teams would be known as the Rainbow Warriors, while all the women's teams would be known as the Rainbow Wahine.

That backtracks from a previous plan announced in February for the men's teams to be known as simply the Warriors - the current name for the football team.

Athletic director Ben Jay says the change comes in response to public reaction to dropping the term Rainbow from all men's teams.

Jay says the issue is emotional, with the only consensus that the teams should share a nickname.

Hawaii's men's teams currently use three different nicknames.
