Ben Jay lands in PacWest

Former University of Hawaii athletic director Ben Jay will be announced Friday as athletic director at Academy of Art, a Division II school in San Francisco, according to sources.

Academy of Art competes in the PacWest conference, which includes Hawaii Division II schools Brigham Young-Hawaii, Chaminade, Hawaii Pacific and Hawaii-Hilo.

Jay was unavailable for comment Thursday.

Here’s a column I wrote when he was forced to resign from UH.

    Anyone need tickets to the game in Tucson, AZ on Sept. 17; I just bought a block of 30 seats at the 50 yd line behind our UH team bench @$48 each.

    Or tickets to the game at San Jose St. on Oct 8; I got priority seating right behind our UH team bench at the 50 yd line ($30 each).

    And to the game in Michigan Sept. 3?
    Got a group of 35 going–$65 for end zone.

    Wishing Ben Jay success. Sincere, nice guy, but he was learning on the job.

    Taking orders for the San Diego State road game on Nov. 5 ($28 each)–two years ago, we had 300 fans sitting in our group at the 50 to 20 yd line behind the UH bench. Email: or text me at 415-324-0585.
