Donovan hired as AD at Cal State Fullerton

HONOLULU (AP) - A former University of Hawaii athletic director has a new job.

Jim Donovan on Thursday was named athletics director at Cal State Fullerton.

He was introduced during a press conference in Fullerton, Calif., on Thursday.

"I am very honored to have been offered the position of athletic director of California State University Fullerton," Donovan said in a written statement.

Donovan was reassigned from his role at Hawaii after a bungled Stevie Wonder concert this year, which was supposed to be a fundraiser for the athletic department.

Donovan, who replaced Herman Frazier, was the UH athletic director for 4 1/2 years.

Last week, the university's Manoa chancellor, Tom Apple, appointed Ohio State's Ben Jay as Donovan's replacement.

In a statement, Donovan said he was grateful for the opportunities provided to him by the University of Hawaii, as a student-athlete, graduate and athletic director. He called the university a great institution and called on Hawaii residents to support Jay, saying the athletics program deserves the "unwavering support of the Hawaii community."

Donovan played offensive line for UH in the 1980s.
