HONOLULU (AP) -The University of Hawaii fired athletics director Herman Frazier on Tuesday after he failed to re-sign football coach June Jones.
In a brief statement, the university said 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 worth about $2 million a year to coach at SMU.
Frazier was unavailable for comment.
Under provisions in his contract, Frazier will be paid $312,510, which includes a year's salary, plus 90 days of pay. The contract was set to expire July 31, 2010.
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.
