I think I said this earlier but maybe I kept it to myself...sounds like that Graham guy had an axe to grind from the beginning and wanted the program to be re-instated. He's using the violations as a guise for his primary purpose; to reinstate his beloved program cause he has nothing better to do. Loser with a capital L.
EDIT: Yep, I/we did:
We don't want the dejected little whiner back at the university anyhow.
Add crew, add anything, but don't bring back Graham.
The school year was over. The students weren't thrown out on the street.
Graham was canned and his beloved tennis program was tossed in the trash. He's throwing a hissy fit,
and throwing the athletic department and university under the bus.
I'm of the same thought. Soon as I heard it was a coach of an axe'd program, I said, "figures". Disgruntled former employee with an axe to grind. Had his lovely program been kept, guy would have continued on without batting an eye at the so called Title IX violations. Guy is so old he can't find a tennis gig anywhere else (even the local rec center) so he's forcing UA's hand to try to weasel his way back in. Shmuck.
I still think we need to remedy the situation and it should have never gotten to that point...but this Graham dude is a shmuck.
