DOING IT HIS WAY: WARRIORS OWNER PROFILED BY S.F. COLUMNIST
Published September 22, 1997
Warriors Owner Chris Cohan was profiled by C.W. Nevius of the S.F. CHRONICLE, who wrote, "Cohan makes all the calls, all the time, sometimes leaving his staff to read about changes in the newspaper." More Nevius: "With a lackluster team, a brand new arena and a cranky group of fans, it is crunch time for the Warriors, and it will be interesting to see how the sometimes mercurial owner handles himself." While a new Oakland Coliseum is Cohan's "baby," Nevius asked, "Will anyone be inside?" Reports estimate that 4,000-6,000 season tickets have been sold and only 20 of 72 luxury boxes. But team General Counsel Robin Baggett says there has been a recent "surge" in luxury sales. Nevius also noted the personnel changes within the team's organization: "The major staff turnover when Cohan took over might have been expected, but some top new hires haven't been around long either. The Warriors snapped up three marketing types from the San Jose Sharks, but two left within a year. Those who leave have complained that their input was limited" (S.F. CHRONICLE, 9/20).
