Draft Scout Tony Dye News
03/06/12 - UCLA closed Pro Day to media and the public to prevent “distractions” during the workouts, though UCLAbruins.com was covering the event. The ban also extended to parents of players working out. Football program employees, working in pairs, were on roving patrols in the parking structures, which are well away from the field. “I think this is all unnecessary,” said Mark Dye, whose son Tony Dye was a safety for the Bruins the last four seasons. “If they have a legitimate reason for keeping parents out, I haven’t heard it yet.” Dye said that he was told this was like “a job interview.” But Dye said, “As a parent of a player who has been here four years, I want to see my son play his last bit of football at UCLA.” As for the job interview explanation, Dye said, “I get that I wouldn’t go on a job interview with my son. But watching him play football this far away?” - Chris Foster, The LA Times
