Open Letter To Dan Guerrero, UCLA Director of Athletics Dear Dan: We the students, alumni, faculty, donors, boosters and fans of USC and its athletic programs strongly believe it is time for you to extend ad infinitum Karl Dorrell as Head Coach of the UCLA football program. We make this appeal to you after careful consideration of his achievements and of the short- and long-term consequences of his staying as such. Karl Dorrell changed the character of the football program and cleaned up many of the off-the-field issues that disgraced your community in years past. He has set a great example for future teams in this regard, and for that all are grateful. We understand when you hired Karl four years ago you said at the press conference that you expected the bRuin football team to win Pac-10 championships, compete in BCS bowl games and to beat Southern Cal. After nearly four years, Karl Dorrell has achieved none of those goals, but we feel that the best is yet to come. We also understand that the displeasure with the coach could be viewed as nothing more than the expected grumbling of an unrealistic, unreasonable or overcritical few. We ask that you ignore a few problems that may exist and continue to overlook any negative effects that the having not reached any of the aforementioned goals have had on the University as a whole. Lastly, we are not of the opinion that the Karl Dorrell coach-in-training experiment has run its course. We fully expect an upturn in attendance at home games, which will positively affect concession and merchandise sales. The donors and boosters will again be calling for a group-wide effort at increasing donations to your department and its programs, the Athletic Fund, and the university. Do not listen to the lunatic ravings of students, alumni and fans to boycott the remaining games at home. In closing, we would like to offer you our support in taking this difficult step. Please make Coach Dorell\'s tenure as head coach of the gutties permanent. Go bRuins
