Hawaii places athletic director on leave

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) The University of Hawaii is placing Athletic Director Jim Donovan on indefinite leave while it investigates the bungling of a benefit concert promoted as featuring Stevie Wonder.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported Wednesday university vice president Rockne Freitas will serve as acting athletic director until the investigation is finished.

KHON reports Donovan will be paid while he's on leave.

The university on Tuesday announced it was canceling the concert after learning the event wasn't authorized by Wonder or his representatives.

The university is trying to get back $200,000 from its athletic funds that it paid as a deposit for the concert.

The school is also putting Stan Sherriff Center manager Rich Sherriff on paid leave.
