Change in athletic’s direction disappoints Cabrini graduate

Dr. Iadarola:

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 in 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 a couple of 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!
