AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY EMPLOYER
By HOWARD KOHN
Executive Sports Editor
Don James, the man whose
"Oklahoma" formation earmark-
ed Michigan's defense for the past
two years, has accepted a job as
defense coordinator at Colorado.
"This will give me a chance to
gain knowledge and experience in a
different setting," James explain-
ed. "Every assistant coach dreams
of becoming a head coach and you
need exposure to get a reputation."
James joined the Michigan staff
in 1966 as defensive backfield
coach, giving up a seven-year ten-
ure at Florida State.
"I've seen the Southern brand
of football (he also played for
Miami, Fla.) and I've coached in
the Big Ten which has great aca-
demic institutions and good foot-
ball," James added. "Now I want
to try the West and the Bud
James, a recognized authority
on Wilkinson's famed 5-4 defense,
will find a compatriot at Colorado.
Head football coach and athletic
director Ed Crowder played under
Wilkinson at Oklahoma, making
headlines as an All-America quar-
"It's always tough to leave .. .
we've dug in pretty good here at
Michigan. But moving is the only
way you can advance yourself in
this game," James reasoned.
"There's nothing negative about
my leaving Michigan."
James is a native of Masselon
(Football Town), Ohio, arfd coach-
ed briefly at Kansas before going
to Florida State.
As backfield coach, he headed
the Big Ten's most stringent sec-
ondary in 1966 with the veteran
quartet of Rick Volk, Rick Sygar,
Mike Bass and John Rowser. But
he had to start from scratch with
unknowns in 1967.
James' departure gives the
Michigan staff two vacancies-the
other caused by Y 'C McNease's
switch to Idaho. The athletic de-
partment has not yet indicated
when either will be filled.
