UH athletic director and staff spent donations

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) A records review shows that University of Hawaii athletic director Jim Donovan and his staff spent large amounts of money from private discretionary donations.

The Honolulu Star Advertiser reports that in the nearly five years Donovan headed the university's athletic department, he and his staff spent more than $800,000 in private discretionary donations.

The Star Advertiser obtained the records through a request and reviewed them Tuesday.

The records indicate that the money was used on a wide range of goods and services, including taking staff members to the NCAA Final Four basketball tournament and paying for dinners to entertain donors and corporate sponsors.

Donovan headed the department from 2008 until about two months ago when he was removed as athletic director.
