FHKY: Gary Barta Statement

Updated: Tuesday, August 19 2014, 08:16 PM CDT
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Iowa Athletic Director Gary Barta released the following statement Tuesday night surrounding the firing of Field Hockey coach Tracey Griesbaum:

I have been made aware of, and have read, the statement of support for coach Griesbaum released by our current field hockey team.
This has been an emotional process and period of time for everyone involved… including, and especially for, our student-athletes.
The women in our program have been very respectful and professional in several meetings with me and my staff.  While I don’t agree with everything in their statement, I do respect and appreciate the decision to support their former coach and their desire to publicly express it as a team.
As a program, we have focused the past several days on moving forward.  I’m pleased with the student-athletes’ expressed commitment to Iowa field hockey and their dedication to prepare for a successful 2014 season.
