June Jones said for the record Friday he is not interested in being University of Hawaii athletic director.
“I won’t be applying,” said Jones, who was at Waialae Country Club following rookie Tony Finau at the Sony Open in Hawaii’s second round.
Jones did say, however, that he would possibly like to coach football at UH again. He was the Warriors head coach from 1999 to 2007, taking the program to unprecedented heights.
Sources had said in recent weeks Jones might be interested in the AD job, as well as coach. Potential local candidates for AD include Keith Amemiya, Rick Blangiardi, Mufi Hannemann and John McNamara.
A search advisory committee was announced earlier this week and interviews of finalists are expected to be conducted in March.
