University of Hawaii athletics director Herman Frazier is gearing up for the task of whittling down the list of applicants for the vacant associate athletics director position.
Frazier said he received 89 applications for the job, giving him an eclectic pool of potential candidates to choose from.
"They come from all sorts of places," Frazier said. "There's laywers, there's athletic directors, there's people from the Olympic committee, there's people from other governing bodies, associate athletic directors -- I've got the whole gamut. Even people from private business and people from fundraising companies.
"We'll go through it and hopefully we can start the interview process within the next two weeks."
The associate athletic director position, second in command to Frazier in the department, has been vacant since Tom Sadler left in August for a job as vice president of Global Entertainment Corporation in Phoenix.
Sadler worked at UH for two years and his duties included overseeing the day-to-day operations of the athletic department, along with overseeing the men's volleyball, softball, baseball and cross country programs.
Frazier has been away from his office for much of the past month accompanying the UH football team on road trips to Michigan State and Idaho and fulfilling other obligations on the mainland.
Another AD's meeting scheduled for this week was canceled, giving Frazier a chance to catch his breath and devote more time to the search for Sadler's replacement, though a timetable for naming a replacement hasn't been set.
"I gained four days of my life back, so we're working as expeditiously as we possibly can," he said.
