Dedication to basketball shaped manager's life, influenced teams

During an Atlanta meet-and-greet for young alumni in October, former University of Richmond men's basketball team manager Daniel Woolley told new President Edward Ayers he was upset that Richmond had disbanded its sports management major. "He kind of bit his ear off," his mother, Charlsie Woolley said. Ayers asked Woolley if he would have majored in sports management.
