Booster says he threatened to remove name
COLUMBIA, Mo. -- The independent inquiry into former Missouri basketball coach Quin Snyder's disputed resignation was immediately preceded by a prominent booster's request that his family's name be removed from the team's practice gym unless the university launched a further investigation.
Doug Albrecht, president and chief executive officer of the St. Louis-based Centric Group, told the Columbia Daily Tribune for a story Thursday that he asked the university's Board of Curators last week to either seek more answers on its own or rename the Albrecht Family Practice Facility at Mizzou Arena.
Snyder, who left the team with six games remaining in a tumultuous season, has said he was confronted by an aide to athletics director Mike Alden on Feb. 9 -- the same day Snyder told reporters he would finish the season -- and was told his job could not be salvaged.
According to Snyder, Tiger broadcaster Gary Link delivered that message on behalf of Alden.
