Not so fast

May 25th, 2014

Let's suppose you're a UH head coach and you want to hire an assistant coach, graduate-assistant coach or, even, an administrative assistant.

UH rules require the position to be advertised for 11 working days. Because tomorrow is Memorial Day, the advertising period would begin on Tuesday. The 11th business day would be June 10. But the next day is Kamehameha Day, a state holiday. After that, about five finalists must be interviewed. That can be done through telephone interviews on Thursday and Friday, June 12 and 13. After that, background checks, which take about five business days, will be performed.

If a coach wanted to begin the search today, under the current format and barring any complications or red flags, the position would not be filled earlier than June 23.

Just sayin' …
