WARRIORS PRESIDENT DOLICH RESIGNS, SOURCES CITE FRUSTRATION
Published July 7, 1995
Warriors President Andy Dolich resigned yesterday after becoming "increasingly frustrated" as Owner Chris Cohan and Team Council Robin Baggett "steadily cut back his sphere of control," according to sources cited by Ric Bucher in this morning's SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS. Bucher reports that Dolich "was abruptly removed" from the process of finding a successor to Coach/GM Don Nelson after Chuck Daly and Doug Collins said they were not interested, and "apparently didn't have much operating room on the business side." While Baggett said Dolich's departure "was very friendly and amicable," Bucher reports that front office employees are concerned "about how the business side of the franchise will run under Cohan." Bucher cites a 30-page employee handbook distributed to front-office employees before the draft that requires "all employees other than upper-level management" to clock in and out and extends each employee's work day by 30 minutes. The "high-placed" source speculated that Baggett, who says he is not a candidate, would be the successor: "Who else could it be? Cohan doesn't trust anybody else" (SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 7/7).
