Griz AD Letter to Fans

Thanks to U of M Sports Information Director Dave Guffey for sending us this letter from Athletic Director Kent Haslam. Dear Griz Nation:

As the football season comes to a conclusion, I want to extend my heartfelt thanks to you for your continued support of Griz football. Fans showed up in record numbers to watch the Grizzlies this season and I join the university administration, coaching staff and student-athletes in saying Thank You.

A 5-6 record is disappointing. At the same time, I appreciate the team’s hard work, and Mick Delaney’s time, dedication and heart-felt commitment to our football student-athletes. He and the assistant coaches have worked tirelessly. I look forward to his returning as the head coach for the 2013 football season and working toward a Big Sky Conference championship.

I am eager to see a resolution of the ongoing NCAA investigation. While a completion date is still uncertain, Jean Gee, senior associate athletic director, is working cooperatively with the NCAA to bring the matter to a conclusion. I know that, in the end, the athletic department will emerge stronger than ever.

Men’s and women’s basketball is well under way. Both teams are off to a great start, and I ask you to help fill Dahlberg Arena and cheer them on to a conference championship. As you know, the programs are under great leadership. I appreciate all the wonderful coaches we have in the athletic department.

Thank you for your continued support. As always…I know Griz fans everywhere will rally together. Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving!

Kent Haslam
