I am deeply saddened by the recent turn of events at Cabrini
College, not necessarily because YOU decided to go in a different
direction with the Men's basketball program, but because of the
timing and the manner it which it was handled.
I have taken the opportunity to privately tell Coach Dzik what he
has meant to me as a recruit, a student, a co-worker, and ultimately
a friend. Since your actions show you are not concerned about John
as a person, I am not concerned with sharing my feelings with you.
What I would like to share with you is the financial consequences
this fiasco will have on YOUR institution. The yearly monetary
contributions that I have been providing Cabrini College will end
immediately. My participation in alumni events as well as the
support of the current athletic teams will cease immediately.
However, the worst part of your decision, is Lindsey (class of 2018)
and Ryan (class of 2020) will not have the Cabrini College education
and experience that I enjoyed. Having worked in the Cabrini
Admissions department under your leadership, I know how important
family and friends are to the recruiting process, I am sorry to say
Cabrini will no longer be receiving my support.
Maybe this is not a big deal to you, as I am only one alum, but
judging from conversations I have had and the letters that I have
read, I am not the only one with these feelings. As of right now,
there are approximately 5 weeks left in Coach Dzik's career at
Cabrini due to your decision. (which no so coincidentally
corresponds to the length of my further affiliation with the
college) You are the one that started this and the only one that can
fix it. It's up to you!
