Hawaii's athletic director told the school's Board of Regents that the football program could be "going away," according to multiple reports from Hawaii.
Jay said athletics has been running a deficit in 11 of the last 13 years, including a $2.1 million deficit in the most recent fiscal year.
"Not been a matter of spending, it has really been a matter of not achieving enough revenue to support ourselves, " Jay told the board. "What we have now is a bare bones operating budget that is limping along and has hurt our competitiveness and our ability to recruit and people want us to win. It raises, I think the entire state, by what we do. And, I think we are worthy of the investment."
