More happy fun news for the basketball program today! Press release:
Associate Head Coach Dunn to Take Indefinite Leave of Absence
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- University of Michigan men's basketball coach John Beilein announced today (Tuesday, Dec. 29) Associate Head Coach Jerry Dunn will take an indefinite leave of absence from the
Wolverine program due to personal family matters.
"Presently, I have family matters that need my immediate attention," said Dunn. "Coach Beilein and the University have been gracious enough to allow me the time needed to do so."
"I fully support Jerry as he continues to focus on his family at this time," said Beilein. "We will be there and ready to assist as needed now and when he is ready to return."
Administrative Specialist Jeff Meyer will assume Dunn's duties during his absence from the program.
No word on what the "family matters" are, and I think it's probably best that we don't worry about speculating here. Best wishes to Coach Dunn, and hopefully he can get his family issues squared away ASAP and get back on the hardwood. In tandem with the bad news on Cronin earlier today, it's been a rough stretch for men's basketball.
Hopefully, a couple wins to start the Big Ten season will make us forget about any distractions, and the team can go on a run in the conference. A win against Indiana would go a long way towards restoring good vibes around the program.
