To All Fans and Supporters of Michigan Athletics,
Our basketball program and the Michigan community were saddened to hear about
the tragedy that affected the Hatch family late Friday evening. Austin needs as
much support right now as possible and he continues to be in our thoughts and
prayers during this difficult time.
We are grateful that the NCAA has relaxed some of the contact restrictions
currently in place to accommodate this unique set of circumstances for our
coaches. We appreciate that they and Big Ten Office are working with us
throughout this situation. Both groups have been in communication with our
compliance office and continue to provide valuable insight on a daily basis.
The outpouring of support from our Michigan faithful, coaches, administrators
and fans across the country has been overwhelming. We are thankful for all the
support that has been offered to the Hatch family. We appreciate that the NCAA
will continue to work with us and act in the best interest of everyone involved.
Thanks for your continued prayers for Austin and the Hatch family.
For those who would like to send a note of support, the family has requested all
well-wishers use the website -- www.caringbridge.org/visit/AustinHatch
