I wish Pete the best in his new position. Unfortunately, he may be a strong competitor in athletics especially with state funding for his programs. He will be missed at the "U".

Serious implications( negative) for the U. How the powers that be would allow someone so talented and passionate about what they do move across town to directly compete is very alarming. I wish Pete Garcia all the luck in the world and hope the day never comes when we regret allowing this to happen

This is a damn TRAVESTY for UM. Garcia was primarily responsible for the stellar recruiting classes that made up the '01 and '02 Hurricanes teams. THIS MOVE IS AWFUL AND DEE IS TO BLAME FOR NOT STEPPING DOWN SOONER!!!!!!!!!!

been thinking on this one. it means garcia lost out to coker. coker has done more damage to this program than erickson ever thought of doing and josh is right about taking dee w/him. new brooms sweep better--particularly if there is some kind of program left behind. and i don't think lc is a particularly nice guy--doesn't take responsibility but fires four guys and one article quotes him as saying it would be nice if the medical people said something. good managers don't criticize their staffs in public. for one thing, you hired them; they're yours. i had a boss like that once--yrs ago. he finally left and every morning i read the obits looking for his name.
