Dartmouth fires coach following boycott threat

Dartmouth men’s basketball coach Terry Dunn was forced to resign

after his entire team threatened to boycott taking the court this

weekend.

Multiple sources told FOXSports.com that the each player

signed a document that was taken to the administration on Friday

stating they refused to play for Dunn.

Dunn, who had a 47-103 overall record in five-plus seasons,

was forced to resign on Friday afternoon.

The school released the news that Dunn resigned in a

statement on Friday evening.

“Terry has been a loyal and dedicated member of our

staff,” Acting Athletic Director Bob Ceplikas said in the

statement. “We thank him for his service and leadership to our

basketball program and wish him the best in his future

pursuits.”

The Big Green was 3-10 this season.

Sources also told FOXSports.com that the entire staff from a

year ago chose to leave this past offseason.

No interim coach has been named yet. First-year Dartmouth

assistant coaches Mark Gaupe, Michael Brown and Tim Lane will share

coaching against Harvard on Saturday.

It’s the second Ivy League coach that has been forced to

leave during this season after Penn fired Glen Miller last month

after a winless start.
