No, You Can’t Have Your $3 Million Donation Back

No no no and hell no

HARTFORD, Conn. — A major benefactor to the University of Connecticut wants the school to return $3 million in donations and remove his family name from its football complex because he says he was shut out of discussions about the selection of a new football coach.

Robert Burton, chief executive officer of Greenwich, Conn.-based Burton Capital Management, said in a Jan. 19 letter to UConn athletic director Jeff Hathaway that his opinions were ignored and he did not support the way Paul Pasqualoni was selected as coach.

Burton called the situation “a slap in the face and embarrassment to my family,” and said he planned “to let the correct people know that you did not listen to your number one football donor.” He called the search process flawed.

“We want our money and respect back,” Burton wrote to Hathaway.


Donating money to a university does not give you the right to name the head coach. If you were qualified to choose the head coach of a Division I football program then you would be the AD of a Division I football program. Just because you played “football” at some lame ass school called Murray State does not make you Jim Tressel.

Shut the fuck up, and pay the appropriate amount in taxes you hedge fund running douche.
