The student-athletes of this prestigious university are held to the highest academic expectations, and I am looking forward to assisting and aiding them with their athletic goals," said Dunn.  "Coach Erdelyi has developed an excellent men's golf program and I hope to continue to build upon his achievements. I consider it a privilege and an honor to be a part of the Carnegie Mellon Athletics team."
