AD, Alexander, Spring, Etc

An AD search update from Ferd Lewis.
The University of Hawai'i expects to "soon" announce a search committee to aid in the process of picking a new athletics director, according to a spokesman for the Manoa chancellor's office.
Stephen Tsai writes that safety Kirk Alexander has retired from football.
Safety Kirk Alexander has retired from football because of personal reasons, coach Greg McMackin confirmed.
As a member of one of the great UCLA football families, it was hoped Alexander would have a prosperous career at UH. And while he showed promise, he never managed to ascend high on the depth chart.
Best of luck to him.

Dave Reardon follows up on his blog post from yesterday about spring practice.
The finale of Hawaii's spring football practice will be much more like an actual game this year.

"We're going to let them go," new head coach Greg McMackin said. "We probably won't hit the quarterbacks and we don't know the exact format yet."
And Rich Miano talks about the walk-ons trying out.
Close to 20 new walk-ons will be trying to make the Warriors roster this spring.

"Three to seven of them may make it to fall camp," associate head coach Rich Miano said. "They have to keep up their grades, make it through our eight-week conditioning program and do well in the spring. It's always hard with the numbers. We have 130 right now and are going to have to cut some guys."
Ferd Lewis writes about three people being inducted into UH's Circle of Honor this week.
Charlie Bessette, Ma'a Tanuvasa and Bob Wagner, three prominent figures spanning nearly 45 years of University of Hawai'i bowl game history, will be inducted into the school's Circle of Honor this week.
Cindy Luis has an article about them as well.

Back to work!
