Bolla out as UH coach

UH today made official what was known for a while: Jim Bolla will no longer coach the women’s basketball team. The process was extensive while UH tried to go through “due diligence” steps. A search/screening committee for Bolla’s successor is being formed, but the timeline certainly will hinder recruiting.

* * *

• In the past 10 years, UH’s four-wide offense had a basic alignment: if the ball is in the middle, there are two receivers on the left and two on the right of the formation; if it’s on the right hashmark, there are three receivers to the left; if it’s on the  left hash, there three receivers on the right. But this spring, the Warriors are mixing it up. And that’s where receiver Greg Salas fits in. Last year, the Warriors tried to motion Salas into the slot. “Now, if we want, he can start off there,” coach Greg McMackin said. “We have a lot of options.”
• Salas saved the best for last today, making a diving catch off a long pass from Greg Alexander. After that, the horn sounded, signaling the end of practice. Really, there was no need to continue.
• Running back Inoke Funaki is expected to be the holder, succeeding Tim Grasso. But quarterback Shane Austin worked out there today.
• Safety Kenny Estes, a former All-State soccer player, practiced his field-goal attempts today. “I don’t want to jinx anything,” said Estes, who declined to elaborate on his audition.
• Vili Nauahi is looking more comforable as an outside linebacker. Even though he sometimes makes the wrong reads, his effort is very good.
• Coaches continue to gush about running back Leon Wright-Jackson’s workouts and play in practices. Wright-Jackson deflected the  praise, saying, “I’m just trying to have fun.”

We’ll miss our ad guru, Tia Ward, who is leaving the islands at the end of the month.

    Is there any procedure to expedite the process? Other state universities seem to be able to do it (Kentucky with Calipari, Arizona almost with Floyd). Is UH just backward?

    Howzit Everybody,

    I gotta say “It’s about time”. Now we can build a solid foundation for our womens program again.A foundation that we had with Vince Goo. Vince Goo you ready to come back. Eh Big Wave interesting candidate with the former Iolani Coach.

  21. al ™ April 8, 2009 11:13 am

    well no surprise about bolla
    and yes, due diligence is and was necessary.

    yeah, i’d like to see vince goo back at the helm. his old staff is still around, i mean, they were all at nearly all the games huddled up there in the rafters.

    there’s one automatic recruit coming regardless, according to the coconut wireless, that being shawna-lei kuehu former poy of this state.

  22. d1島 April 8, 2009 11:14 am

    A productive season outta LWJ would be awesome!

  23. warriorfanny2 April 8, 2009 11:18 am

    how did Nevada hire a bsktbl coach within 24 hours without a blue-ribbon screening committee comprised of business execs with little or no basketball experience?
    Shame on the wolf pack administration for lacking the application of due dillegence.

  24. al ™ April 8, 2009 11:18 am

    muguishi…..nah, he has too much on his plate already. time for him to make some serious money before he retires. he probably did forego 1 or 2 hundred thousand a year, each year that he coached at iolani. all for the love of the game and the kids.

  25. d1島 April 8, 2009 11:19 am

    Need to make a trip out into the area of the ceded lands…

    Kekoa… hungry?

  26. Pauoa Boy April 8, 2009 11:21 am

    LWJ needs to play with confidence when the lights go on. I am pulling for him to break out already. He has the tools to be a very good back, if he can put it all together and run with confidence he’ll be very productive for us this season.

  27. YpoWarrior April 8, 2009 11:22 am

    It’s good to hear that they’re exploring with different alignments. I think it’s good to have the opposing D see different alignments/formations & even different personnel “packages”. That may cause them to re-adjust their play-call at the line of scrimmage. Any type of confusion can only help the O.

  28. Ralph April 8, 2009 11:22 am

    UH has to change its hiring process for coaches…it’s not like hiring the chancellor, dean or we watch until a search committee is assembled, then they place an ad that is put out for a month, the committee narrows the search to 5, then submits to JD who picks one to submit to the bor for approval…can we say in about 2 months, and isn’t recruiting starting this month….

  29. SteveM April 8, 2009 11:22 am

    Good morning everyone!

    Good news about Bolla departing.

    #1 Tommy — are you a new here or are you the “Tommy” from the 2007 football season? Sorry, hard to tell with only first names…in any event, welcome!

  30. al ™ April 8, 2009 11:23 am

    wf2…..different strokes for different state university’s.

    what we speak of due diligence is in reference to the separation process of the former coach.

    now the hiring process is another animal. unfortunately, the state of hawaii’s hiring process is not like nevada’s. therefore, they can move faster than we.

    these hiring policies are ingrained in to the system and there is nothing we could do about it unless the laws/regs, etc. are ammended in the next session. it also is probably due to the union contract pertaining to hire and fire.

  31. letsgowarriors April 8, 2009 11:23 am

    breakout season from lwj would be nice.

  32. whitey April 8, 2009 11:25 am

    wf2, just for info, but hawaii is the worst state to do any business and anything that is tied to the state is dictated by politics and micromanagement. plus you have to deal with the unions. look at how many of the old kamaaina businesses either moved out of hawaii or just folded.

  33. Tommy April 8, 2009 11:26 am

    Thanks. I haven’t posted much. Not sure what the 2007 football season means.

  34. warriorfanny2 April 8, 2009 11:28 am

    One Greg continues to impress with his sticky.
    The other Greg needs to release more quickly.

  35. (Jesse)James April 8, 2009 11:29 am

    Son of Tsai sounds like a guy who used to stalk the NY nights during the 70s….oh, wait, that was the Son of Sam…

  36. July Jones April 8, 2009 11:32 am

    Once the game slows down for LWJ he will do great. But if he continues to hesitate and not hit the whole hard just as weve seen in the past he will be a waiste of talent. It needs to be instilled that he is a powerback at least in his brain. Then you will see his running style and production change.

  37. YpoWarrior April 8, 2009 11:32 am

    Didn’t they hire Mack in a week last year? I thought they expedited the hiring process for him.

  38. wafan April 8, 2009 11:34 am

    What is it with Hawai’i and the length of time it takes to replace people? Is it that difficult to find good people to step in? Or, is it a political backwater that must cater to some sort of antiquated bureaucracy?

    Sometimes it feels as if someone sitting in a darkened room in some far-off land must nod his head in silent and mysterious approval following sufficient and appropriate monetary offerings.

  39. homey ℞ April 8, 2009 11:38 am

    The Nevada AD already knew who to hire. Just a different approach and procedure in the hiring process. It is what it is.

    Lunch is calling…

  40. homey ℞ April 8, 2009 11:40 am

    I don’t even think the Nevada Board of Regents approved the hiring yet but obviously it is a slam dunk.

  41. warriorfanny2 April 8, 2009 11:46 am

    al, thanx for the technical description of the obvious problem–my dad used to call it the david trask syndrome.

  44. mctruck April 8, 2009 11:51 am

    I wonder if the coaches where impressed with LWJ’s blocking and taking hits, or just his running?

  45. al April 8, 2009 11:52 am

    wf2, roysan16…..

    its time that we put a face to your collective insights here on the blog lately. let’s do this tsaiko style and begin with a cattle call?

    you boys game?

  50. al April 8, 2009 12:00 pm


    we are all pulling for his breakout season. no one could be more frustrated than he.

    a lot of competition will come this spring and then some come fall. i suggest that lwj go watch some of the great ones. ones that are more suited to his abilities.

    for example, herschel walker, eric dickerson, bo jackson, and the like those type who had world class speed, size, and not so much shake and bake but, the sort that ran for ten yards faster than any linebacker alive. that to me is his style of running; see hole… quick….run through em or around em.

  51. warriorfanny2 April 8, 2009 12:03 pm

    Unfortunately if you don’t have a process in place it can become too easy to abuse the system. The process slows things down and makes things a real pain sometimes but on the other hand I think there is an overall benefit to transparency.

    This is women’s BB as well — lower profile with candidates lower on the radar screen.

  61. Piper's son April 8, 2009 12:37 pm

    AL: Vince Goo would be well-received by many as the women’s basketball coach. There is also a certain assistant BB coach in place right now who seems to have the confidence of the wahines and won when Bolla was not around. She also had head coaching experience if I recall correctly.

    Yes – a CC is definitely in order!

  62. YpoWarrior April 8, 2009 12:38 pm

    Instead of “The Art of Vball”, how about “The Tsai-ence of the Tserve”?

    “ceded lands” as referenced to d1’s post = the ceded lands whereupon the venerable kekoa resides.

    next, there shall never be a quarterback ever as he, the colt brennan. thus, no one shall ever don the jersey number 15.

    so what about a cattle call brother. are you game?

  65. warriorfanny2 April 8, 2009 12:41 pm

    Now transparency is an interesting word per se and is often a word manipulated and bantered as a theme of righteousness and cause.
    Yet, it too, can be abused.
    As an example, our President talked feverishly in pre-election speeches about transparency in legislation and in his hour of office passed the omnibus bill with over 8,000 earmarked clauses and bailout fiascos that included 11th hour bonuses to AIG execs, et al.that congress was not adequately informed.
    How about his nominating 6 to important cabinet positions whom had IRS issues, including his Treasury selection.

    Yes, transparency, is a noble thought, but is equally problematic in an environment fraught with self-agenda and bureaucratic apathy.

    We have seen our wahine basketball program slip beneath the waters in titantic proportions–all in full view of our community.
    What we do need is program integrity, quick action and stout leadership and like the fateful Titantic, Im afraid that the wahine bb controversy is merely the tip of an iceberg that threatens the salvation of an entire program.

  66. Loa April 8, 2009 12:48 pm

    nice to hear lwj is turning heads, we sure need him healthy
    was it the unlv game in 07 when he blew by all the defenders

    also, is kekoa a dhhl-homesteader?

  68. LizKauai [Believer] April 8, 2009 12:50 pm

    Our hiring “processes” are usually works in progress and get adjusted when there are abuses. As long as people remain self-centered, laws must protect the innocent. Some day, self-discipline and spirit will mature in our population and laws will be understood and exercised on a higher level. As in “spirit of the law”.

    Until then, I guess “letter of the law” will just have to keep revising as people keep finding loopholes.

  87. Stephen Tsai April 8, 2009 1:16 pm

    Re: Vince Goo.
    When this whole mess headed toward this conclusion, Goo offered to serve as interim coach, at no pay.
    Hey, he built the program, and look what happened.
    It’s not just the mutiny or the losses. There’s no booster club.
    There’s no connection with the community.
    Nobody asked him to do it, but JB kept saying he would raise money. He didn’t. It wasn’t in his job description, but, sheesh, he did go on and on about it.

  88. Stephen Tsai April 8, 2009 1:17 pm

    I know Bolla complained that he was short-staffed.
    But, hey, he agreed to take one less coach if it meant pumping up his assistants’ salaries.
    And this year, they had better contracts and he got to hire his wife.

  89. YpoWarrior April 8, 2009 1:18 pm

    I say we get Goo for an “interim” basis. Gotta stop the bleeding right away or else…..

  90. Stephen Tsai April 8, 2009 1:19 pm

    As for the process in hiring coaches, that’s the price of fairness.
    Of all of the problems before in bidding for contracts, the extra steps to ensure fairness are a small price.

  120. curveball April 8, 2009 2:39 pm

    It was a good practice today at Ching Field..concentrated on the DB’S and Safety”s…The #1 unit appears to be Davis, Hopkins, Smith, and Bryant. Mana Silva looks really good as does Kenny Estes. The DB’S intercepted 4 passes during the drills with the receivers. They were very impressive today. I still say this team is practicing much better than last year. The 2 new coaches are doing a hell of a job so far…..The catch by Salas at the end of the day was unbelievable. Stretched out and a one handed reception for 35 yards going full speed with a DB all over him….

  121. duffer April 8, 2009 2:43 pm

    WOW, I need to watch myself. A few people, some I know, a few I don’t approached me and asked if I was duffer. Nah I’m homey!

    Re: Hiring Process

    Agreed with expat #54 and ST #90.

    It gives all qualified candidates an opportunity to apply. When I hear someone say they should “make a quick decision on a replacement”, my mind correlates that as “Oh, they’re just gonna pick favorite(s), even if they aren’t the most qualified.” That’s just me, YMMV.

    IMO, I would rather the UHAD methodically consider all of the candidates who express interest in the job, even if it takes longer to do, than to simply select someone in short order so as to appease the emotions of its fanbase.

    Hey, maybe they might find someone with good credentials who they wouldn’t have otherwise considered…..

  124. warriorfanny2 April 8, 2009 2:53 pm

    curveball, thanx for sharing.
    we need solid improvement at safety and we do look better with tank, davis and smith–agree.
    i too, like tormey on the backside.
    ? marks at CB–we need a physical, shut-down corner to make our blitzing schemes effective….dont expect it in 2009 but the way MAC n staff r recruiting–it wont be long.
    got to root 4 our 2 out-isle boyz who were recruited by coach miano….pivotal years for both….best wishes to estes and silva.

    Hey, really enjoyed the Warrior Beat show w/Rich Miano yesterday. Highlight videos, good inside info on the players and system, an articulate coach, a pretty girl and, well, Stephen. Watched the whole thing. Great job. Miano was such a good tackler at UH. He’d run up from safety, whack the guy, the guy would go straight down. Those, were the days.

  137. Duster April 8, 2009 3:26 pm

    Stephen, I’m not altogether sold that the issue of fairness applies to the hiring of a head coach in the same way that public contracts are advertised for bid.

    YpoWarrior pointed out that Mack was hired a week after JJ left. What a memory! UHAD’s 1/16/08 announcement of Mack’s hire:

    The situation is similar – coach leaves after end of season and a little before the signing period for the recruiting class. Uncertainty for the program. Should women’s basketball be treated any differently? Does expediency only apply when hiring from within (since Mack was already associate head coach) but not someone outside of UH?

    I dunno. Hiring a head coach seems to be more effective through the use of a headhunting type process than a classified ad process to me. You still will be trying to identify and pursue the candidates who are the best fit for the program.

    funny thing about the coaching profession. irregardless of what sport, if you go to enough meetings, clinics, competition, etc. you will know who can fit into your program and do a good job. i agree many are good coaches, but are in the game for ego and money. nothing wrong with that, but uh cannot afford that kind of coach. there are many coaches who will not move because they love the school, players, alumni, etc. so looking around may not be the best, but you do need to look and meet as many coaches and learn about them. keep them as friends and it makes it much easier to find good coaches for your program. in other words, hoomalimali is good.

  154. al ™ April 8, 2009 4:23 pm

    again, the due diligence has to do with termination or separation process as they like to kindly call it these days.

    the hiring process also has its rules, though most have to do with time frames regarding number of days the job vacancy must be posted. thus, the so-called delays in hiring.

    After watching an exciting conclusion to todays practice, it called for French Toast made from Sweetbread to celebrate the play of the day.

    The defense sometimes had their way with the offense, it was a final statement made by Salas that he was not having anymore of it!

    the field that the team will scrimmage on this sat is a george toma special. he is responsible for the field. toma is the turf guru for the kc chiefs. my friend who worked with toma on the field says that he does not appreciate mediocrity and let go some of the workers because they cannot do the job. since the hula bowl left, toma has not returned, but the field should still be in good condition. grass, not turf, so speed will be slowed as compared to turf.

    Re: the Women’s BB team, I agree with Whitey if he’s talking about Pat Charity?
    Can somebody let me know if I’m butchering her correct name. I like her style & the girls seem to respond to her coaching with the exception of that blow-out
    near the end of the season. As for the football team, I’m chomping at the bit already. The addition of the the 2 veteran coaches (Shaw & Tormey) along with
    a Grad Assistant that was a tough & legitimate NFL player just gives me a great vibe & I expect this development to pay dividends very soon. I seriously doubt many teams will be laughing at UH this season.

  171. koakane™ April 8, 2009 4:58 pm

    hey there al agree with your pick of chico and nani. they would be good coaches only thing is if they are compatible coaches. another supa assistant would be dennis agena has many local ties. had a great clinic while at kalakaua but moved it to kalani where their program is going well.

  172. warriorfanny2 April 8, 2009 4:58 pm

    whitey, good of u to mention toma.
    just sharing….
    during its construction, a friend and i would bust-out brewskis and pupus from our cooler by the wahine softball stadium after george was pau and he would share how he started his apprenticeship with his dad during the depression years in the mid-west. They would spruce up fields and diamonds to bring back pride to the community and work for free. It was hard-times for all and george started early learning about giving from the heart for a good cause.

    Kinda of like Kevin Costner did w his Iowa corn field in the movie, Field of Dreams.

    I admired the guy. Indeed, george toma is a rare individual and he loved JJ, he said so, many times, but this guy was a genius with dirt and had so much passion and heart for his profession.
    Hawaii lucked-out and got a million-dollar gem for a dime.

    Everytime i am at the grassy-fields george built i think of this man.
    its a crime they dont name it after him–Toma Field.
    It represents a genuine spirit of pure heart, a trait we need not to forget.

    Jim Mills talked about making the Canadian Football Hall of Fame:

    Mills, 47, a Vancouver native, played his college football at the University of Hawaii before being drafted in the ninth round of the 1983 NFL draft by the Indianapolis Colts. The offensive tackle spent two seasons with Indy before joining the B.C. Lions in 1986 before signing with Ottawa as a free agent 1994. But he returned to Vancouver to finish his career with the Lions in 1995.

    He was named the CFL’s outstanding lineman in 1990 and 1991 and earned league all-star nominations in 1988, 1990, 1991. Yet Mills said he was genuinely surprised when given the news of the induction.

    “I haven’t played in 14 years so I was quite shocked when I got the call,” he said. “As a kid you grow up dreaming about playing in the CFL or winning championships or getting trophies.

    “The Hall of Fame is beyond my dream so it’s a great day today.”

However, I won’t do that anymore for this blog if the Advertiser’s software will put spam because I link to this blog.

    I haven’t hit the tables yet today…I’m going in about 10 minutes. The drive went well–I drove the whole way and traffic was surprisingly light, even in Vegas!

    We hit the “Feast” buffet here–not nearly the greatest buffet in Vegas but at least it was free for my entire family. Thank you to 702WarriorNation for the reminder that there is a 2-for-1 coupon in the Las Vegas newspaper for that buffet! Part of the problem for us may have been that they had a special spread for passover, and that food isn’t what we were looking for.

    Anyway, I did have 5 plates and then dessert and the meal was free so I cannot complain too much…

    Interesting review of the Warriors on Yahoo…this guy does these early assessments for all teams and I thought I should post when he did UH’s review. He goes over everything pretty completely, but makes some basic fact-checking mistakes (David instead of Greg, Aloha instead of Hawaii).

    The most glaring improvement was on the scoreboard: Hawaii averaged 19 points in the first seven games — that’s including a 36-point effort against mighty Weber State — and 30 points in the last seven, after Alexander took over. Alexander is a towering, strong-armed guy in the pocket with his two best big-play receivers, Greg Salas (14.6 yards per catch, three TDs) and Malcolm Lane (17.5 per catch, 6 TDs) at his disposal. The preseason All-WAC love will be split between Boise State’s Kellen Moore and Nevada’s Colin Kaepernick, but there’s no reason Alexander won’t be right in that mix.

    Best-Case. September should be very nice with four winnable games — Central Arkansas, Washington State, UNLV and Louisiana Tech — right away, and the November lineup consists almost entirely of the conference cupcakes. The crucial stretch will be in the middle, during a four-week span in October that includes Fresno State, Boise State and Nevada. Perennial WAC king Boise will be a substantial favorite, even on the island, but if the Warriors can split the FSU and Nevada tilts and close strong with a win over visiting Navy before Wisconsin calls for an early December holiday, 10 wins is there for the taking.

    NFL teams are using phony Facebook profiles to try to get players to reveal more about themselves in order to evaluate them for the draft.

    The woman in the Facebook picture is attractive, with auburn hair and icy blue eyes. She is flanked by several other women, each armed with an inviting smile and curvy features. Along with the photo is a hopeful note from the female “fan” asking to be added to a player’s personal networking profile.

    The twist? These women don’t actually exist, at least not in the way that some unsuspecting NFL prospects are led to believe. Indeed, they are a figment of one NFL team’s imagination – a phony Facebook profile, used as a tool by one franchise in the pre-draft vetting process. A Trojan horse that, when used effectively, unlocks a door to a world of Internet pictures and information which most NFL teams are now consistently compiling to help polish their dossiers on draft picks.

    “It works like magic,” said a personnel source that was familiar with his team’s tactic of using counterfeit profiles to link to Facebook and Myspace pages of potential draft picks. The source directed Yahoo! Sports to one of the team’s “ghost profiles” – a term he coined because “once the draft is over, they disappear. It’s like they were never there.”

No need to push things tonight since I need to take the girls swimming tomorrow and also to Circus Circus, plus Lori and the girls want to see Luxor (they have never been) and the gardens at Bellagio. Busy day…then I can gamble tomorrow night after they are all exhausted.

    Feature story on Chris Tormey and Gordie Shaw.

    “I think they’re great teachers, both of them are outstanding, that’s why they’ve been so successful, they’ve really upgraded our staff,” said McMackin.

    “I see a lot of great effort, and they’re really picking up the changes we’ve made protection wise and as you can see we’re giving out quarterbacks a much cleaner pocket to work in and throw the ball down the field with,” said Shaw.

    “We’re (the secondary) really inexperienced right now, but the good news is we go against one of the best offenses in the country in terms of throwing the football and we know if we can play well against our offense, we can play well against anybody,” said Tormey.
