IS CHRIS FORD ONLY THE FIRST IN A CELTIC HOUSECLEANING?
Published May 19, 1995
The firing of coach Chris Ford "might be the start of wholesale changes in the Celtics organization that could include the axing" of GM Jan Volk, according to Steve Bulpett in the BOSTON HERALD. The Celtics say Volk's job is not in jeopardy, but "one belief from within is that Volk won't be given a new contract when his expires this summer." Bulpett also reports that Tod Rosensweig, the team's VP/Marketing and Communication also "might find his job in peril." Rosensweig headed the Celtic marketing operation until Stuart Layne took over the department in March of '94. Layne "appears to be headed to an expanded role" as COO. One anonymous employee: "I just think a lot of people are very nervous about the direction everything is going in" (BOSTON HERALD, 5/18). Team sources told Jackie MacMullan of the BOSTON GLOBE that Layne "is clearly Paul's (Gaston) guy. Jan is from the Red Auerbach camp and that camp is losing power every day." MacMullan writes league sources "were concerned enough about Rosensweig's status to start looking into other markets for him" (BOSTON GLOBE, 5/18).
