Yale Coach Decries Furstenberg Letter

Yale’s football coach, Jack Siedlecki, told the Yale Daily News that Dean Furstenberg’s letter, far from attacking only the football team, suggests an indictment of athletics in general. He urges potential applicants to use caution before applying to Dartmouth:

“As a parent, it would certainly make me question sending my son or daughter to Dartmouth to be a student athlete,” Siedlecki said. “This is one man’s opinion, but he happens to be the ultimate decision-maker on admission at Dartmouth. He claims it has not affected his decisions on admitting athletes.”

Ivy papers have generally given this issue very thorough coverage, including even commentary from Dartmouth alumni.
