UH athletics announces cuts to address red ink

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) University of Hawaii sports programs are again projecting a deficit and will cut spending on operational budget items by 5 percent.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports the UH athletic department projects a deficit of $1.48 million for the fiscal year that closes June 30.

That may be optimistic.

Athletic director Ben Jay tells regents that the department's projected $31.28 million revenue target is ambitious and the deficient could reach $3 million.

The 5 percent reduction will not affect salaries or benefits.

The department oversees 21 teams and has run up a deficit in 11 of the past 13 years.

Ticket sales could help.

The budget projects an 8.3 percent increase in football ticket revenue. Jay says a strong start Aug. 30 against 25th-ranked Washington would win back fans.
