Rob Dongara announced today via twitter that he wouldn’t be on the team next year. After a surprising freshman year that sparked fan love and made him a top rookie on the team, he failed to do much of anything on this team, and didn’t get a chance to get onto the lineup all that much. Dongara will likely get more playing time on a DIII of AHA team, and got a chance to see more time elsewhere.
This also marks the beginning of Madigan’s transformation. When a new coach comes in, they often clean house in terms of players who have underpreformed or don’t vibe with the new coach’s style. I wouldn’t be surprised to see another player or two end up leaving, but we’ll see over the next week or two.
