Kurihara was also named the senior women’s administrator in the BYU-Hawai‘i athletic department. Wagner will continue to serve as the head coach of the men’s basketball team where he has compiled a 250-130 record in 13 years, and has taken the team to the NCAA II Regional Championships in three of the last four seasons.
Kurihara will continue in her current position as head trainer in the athletic department where she is in her tenth year for the Seasiders.
