Tom Apple has been dismissed as chancellor of the University of Hawaii at Manoa, his attorney, Big Island lawyer Jerry Hiatt, said Wednesday night.

He was offered a tenured faculty position in the chemistry department for an 11-month salary of $299,000. The university is also offering him a total lump sum payment of $100,000, including attorney’s fees.

Rumors surfaced last weekend that Apple, who was hired in 2012, was being dismissed as chancellor — three years before his employment agreement was set to expire. He made about $439,000 a year overseeing the university’s flagship campus.
