UH appreciates the WAC’s quick response to the controversy over Mac’s comment

Appreciating the quick response the WAC made to Mac’s comment, JD said:
“I really appreciate Karl Benson’s quick response. Coach McMackin will follow through with the things he volunteered to do with the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) community on campus and doing the public service announcement. The athletic department staff and student athletes will undergo awareness training, which we have done on a regular basis in the past.” (HA)

“I appreciate Karl and the WAC moving quickly with the decision. There are still things Coach McMackin has volunteered to do, and the athletic department will continue to make sure the staff and student-athletes receive awareness training, which we’ve done in the past regularly.” (HSB)

Looking forward to the start of training camp, Kealoha Pilares said:
“I’m ready for it. From spring to now, it’s been way too long.” (HSB)

About how the team cares about Mac, Inoke Funaki said:
“I think we can hopefully take it and use it in a positive way. A lot of us, we love him a lot and we care about him. I heard about (Friday’s gathering) through text messages. Just everyone calling each other up that the guys on the team are going to meet up to support Coach and be there for him, because he’s been there for a lot of us. We can say Coach has been good to us and taken care of us as players and people and we definitely wanted to be there for him.” (HSB)
