The Hit Em Up of angry booster letters, in of all places, Storrs, Connecticut. ""The primary reason (former coach) Randy (Edsall) took another job is because he couldn't work with you," Burton wrote in the letter to Hathaway. "You are not qualified to be a Division I AD and I would have fired you a long time ago. You do not have the skills to manage and cultivate new donors." ... Burton advised Hathaway that he and his family will "implement eight actions" effective immediately. Among the actions: • The family will not pay for its $50,000-per-year luxury suite at Rentschler Field. "You already have many other empty boxes at Rentschler. My box will just join the list," Burton wrote. • The family will not purchase an $8,000 advertisement on the inside cover of the football program. • All remaining scholarship dollars, including "the current balance" earmarked for football, will be transferred to the business school. • The family will stop its $20,000 annual donation for a summer coaching clinic and plans to make no future donations to UConn. • The family, which used the UConn business school to help "train our first line managers" for its business, will use the Syracuse business school instead."
