Ms. Moll,

As a member of the graduating class of 1999 and a former representative of the athletic department of Cabrini College as a player and coach, I am deeply saddened by the news of the administrationís decision to not renew the contract of my friend and coach, John Dzik.

I am utterly disgusted by this administrations action. Unfortunately, it speaks volumes for an institution that could treat a person who, for 25 years, has been the epitome of the Cabrini spirit. Look at the development of the school over the past quarter of a century and see how many times this mans name is attached in one way or another. It must be a terrible thing to wake up in the morning and enjoy your job the way he enjoyed his career at Cabrini. Itís one thing to talk about it and another to make it happen. John Dzik made it happen. Period. The fact that this administration has decided to merely disregard John Dzik and his accomplishments is just disrespectful.

John Dzik is more than just a coach, or athletic director, or administrator. He has become synonymous with Cabrini Collegeís development as a fine educational institution as well as its nationally recognized athletic programs. More importantly, he is a friend and mentor touching the lives of so many students and alumni. Iím among the fortunate student-athletes that had the opportunity to play under his leadership. My life today, and every day, is positively affected because of the time I spent with John Dzik.

Simply put, if John Dzik is not reinstated as Head Menís Basketball Coach at Cabrini College, I wish to be removed from any and all future communications and solicitations from the college. I am only one heartbeat. There are many others. Please reconsider your decision.
