That hack Bob Dyer has a lazy awful hit piece about Groce and the university in the beacon today. It's filled with accusations and slurs to stir people up. For example it hints that Tom Crean was a candidate for the job. But be careful with that wording because Dyer says Crean was one of candidates who was "suggested" or applied for the job. Article says players "wanted" Charles Thomas but didn't say he actually applied for the job. Article goes on about this $60k but fails to mention what Dambrot was paid or that for the first two years of Groces contract we will be saving close to 500k each year (rough guess) and that his 3rd year salary will still be a savings from Dambrot. It's just a nasty, negative piece unsupportive of the team or the university. Have any of you seen Dyer at a game??? He mentions a letter from the players. Could he even name two starters if asked? And, LeBron writes a letter asking for a job for his friend who has no D1 level experience. So? Why didn't Dyer write about who the final three or four candidates were and the decision making process? Article implies that the 60k was just for Groce. What about all the other candidates it vetted? Yes, Groce was known quantity to us but the others probably weren't. I could go on and on.
