John Dzik

Sample Letter to Send to Cabrini Administration and Media: 

Antoinette Iadarola
Cabrini College
610 King of Prussia Road
Radnor, PA 19807

Dear Dr. Iadarola,

It is with great concern that I send you this letter. I have joined the efforts of my classmates and fellow alumni to express my disappointment over the decision not to renew the contract of John Dzik as head men’s basketball coach at Cabrini College. For the past 25 years, Dzik has done nothing but represent himself and the College with distinction and honor. He has been a role model to all of us who have had the privilege to know and interact with him.

While I respect the College’s decision not to discuss personnel matters, this situation transcends a typical business decision. I defy you to find one act of which could warrant Dzik’s contract not being renewed. His teams continue to do well. His students continue to do well. He continues to represent the College as the great ambassador he has been for the past 25 years. He has lived the education of the heart that Cabrini preaches.

I must also protest the way Dzik is being shown the door after 25 years of loyal service, approximately one year removed from when he graciously stepped aside as Director of Athletics so that the College would not lose one of its shining lights. How is his loyalty and honor repaid, by not allowing him to reach a coaching milestone that only a few have ever met – winning his 500th game.

Not to mention the fact that Dzik and his wife were also named honorary alumnus after their years of service. You are not only disrespecting Dzik and what he has stood for, but all of us who passed through the doors of Grace Hall and walked on the lawn of the Mansion.

With this in mind, I would like to ask the College to remove my name from all mailings and solicitations immediately. Please no longer contact me, as I can no longer in good conscience support a College that would treat one of our own in such a manner.
