It was the second appointment
in less than a week, with both
men having no previous connec-

day Jack Pouts was named by El-
liott to assist with the line.,
Younger Grid Staff
The Wolverines now have the
Big Ten's youngest grid staff with
holdovers Bob Holloway (30) head
line coach and freshman coach
Don Dufek (31). Elliott is 33 as
is Fouts while recently-appointed
backfield coach Hank Fonde is 35.
Although all of Elliott's aides
have specific major duties, he ex-
plained that the staff will be a
flexible one, with the various
members doubling in other capa-
Nelson comes to Michigan from
Colorado where' he was end coach
last year.
It was"a brief stay, however, be-
Cause he was ousted along with
the entire Colorado staff last
month by orders of that univer-
sity's administration.
, NelsonDismissed
Deposed head coach Dallas
Ward and his successor Everett
(Sonny) Grandelius (former-
Michigan State assistant) both
recommended Nelson to Elliott.
Grandelius was forced to dismiss
Nelson when told not to keep any
of Ward's men.
Nelson is no stranger to Elliott,
however, The Wolverine head
mentor knew Nelson t h r o u g h
coaching association.
Five Sport Star
Nelson is a native of Hibbing,
Minn. and graduated from high
school there in 1945. He attend-
ed Gustavus Adolphus College at
St. Peter, Minn. where he starred
in five sports.
In addition to being a first
string center for three years, Nel-
son also lettered in track, base-
ball, basketball and hockey.
After graduation in 1950, Nel-,
son took coaching jobs at Grand
Marais and Mora. From the latter
school he then became freshman
line coach at Colorado while
working for and receiving his
master's degree.
Baseball Coach
After his first stay at Colorado,
Nelson moved further west and
was appointed end coach and
head baseball coach at Utah State
in 1955. His diamond teams won
the western division of the Rocky
Mountain Conference during his
two years there.
He came back to Colorado last
year where he had remained un-
til hired by Elliott.
Nelson is married and the fath-
er of three children, Margaret
Ann, 8; Jacqueline Lee, 5; and
Dan, four months.

Ray Eliot, whose specialty
through the years has been upset-
ting Michigan, resigned as head
football coach at Illinois yesterday.
Eliot's resignation became effec-
tive after his 18th season at .Il-
linois next fall. He will then be-
come Assistant Athletic Director
to head man Doug Mills.
No successor will be named until
after the 1959 season. However,
present speculation has Chuck
Studley, Illinois line coach since
1955 and captain of Eliot's 1951
Conference and Rose Bowl cham-
pions, as the most likely candidate.
Dean of Big Ten Coaches
Eliot, whose last name was origi-
nally Misspickel, relinquished his
status as dean of Big Ten grid
coaches to Ohio State's Woody
Hayes. The latter has been at
Columbus since 1951.

Hoyles Elected Mat Squad eaptain

Mike Hoyles, '60E, was elected
captain of Michigan's 1959-60
wrestling team yesterday.
One of only two juniors on this
year's squad, Hoyles succeeds the
team's only senior, Larry Murray,
as captain.
Finishes Second
Hoyles capped a solid season's"
performance by finishing runnerup
at 123 lbs. in last weekend's Big
Ten meet. On his way to the
finals, he defeated Michigan
State's Joe4 Marchal and upset
Minnesota's highly-rated Ron An-
In the championship match,
Vince Garcia of Iowa beat Hoyles,
4-1. The Wolverine posted a 7-4
record in dual meets this season
for one bf Michigan's best records
at 123 lbs. in recent years.
Coach Cliff Keen yesterday an-
nounced the names of 10 varsity
letter winners and five winners of
freshman awards.
James Agnew, James Blaker,
Don Corriere, Karl Fink, Dennis
Fitzgerald, Dick Fronczak, Wilf
Hildebrandt, Fred Olm, Hoyles,
and Murray were given varsity
Freshman monograms went to
Fritz Kellerman, James Ludwig,
James Marsh, Lester McMurray,
and Melvin Nosanchuck.
Small Frosh Squad
The five freshmen represent one
of Keen's thinnest freshman con-
tingents in recent years. In con-
trast, Keen last year was blessed
with one of his best and most
numerous freshman crops ever,

and that group has lived up to ex-
pectations while competing as
sophomores this year.
The freshmen are scheduled to
enter the Michigan AAU meet,
which will be held March 20-21 at
Pontiac. This meet offers the
freshmen their only opportunity
this year to wrestle competitively
for Michigan.
The only other meet remaining
on the varsity schedule is the
NCAA tournament March 26-28 in
Iowa City.
Making their third trip to that

city within six weeks will be 130-lb.
Murray, 157-lb. Corriere, 167-lb.
Fitzgerald, and 177-lb. Fink, Coach
Keen said.
The first three finished high iii
their weight divisions in the Big
Ten meet, but Fink was eliminated
in his first preliminary bout by
Illinois' Tom Trousil.
"I know he can do better than
that," Keen said. In a dual meet
at Iowa .Feb. 14, Fink defeated
Hawkeye Jim Craig, 3-2. Craig
went on to take runnerup position
in the Big Ten meet.

concerning his decision, although
his teams haven't finished in the
Big Ten's first division since 1953
when the Illini .tied for the title
with Michigan State.
"It is always difficult to decide
that one will leave the firing line
of the fierce competition which is
Big Ten football," he said.
"But, the choice was made in the
off-season when unhurried reflec-
tion on the future is possible with-
out the heat of battle or influence
of a winning or losing season."
Bumi Elliott, Michigan's new
head football coach, termed Eliot's
resignation as "quite a surprise."
"All of the Big Ten coaches in-
cluding myself has the greatest
respect for Ray," said Elliott. "He
has made a tremendous contribu-
tion to the game and the Confer-

Not So Surprised
Bennie Oosterbaan, Michigan
head coach until his o*n resigna-
tion last fall, wasn't quite as sur-
prised as his successor at Eliot's
Eliot intimated in a letter to
Oosterbaan after the latter re-
signed that "I might do the same
thing in the near future,"
Oosterbaan, a close friend of
Eliot's for many years, served
briefly as a colleague of the out-
going Illini coach.
"Ray was head coach of the
East team in the East-West Shrine
game in 1955 and I assisted him,"
recalls Oosterbaan.
Although a frequent victim of
Eliot's keyed up teams whenever
Illinois and Michigan met, Ooster-
baan said he "enjoyed the compe-
tition with Eliot.
Great Competitor
"He's a great competitor and I
wish him well," said Oosterbaan,
who holds the same position (As-
sistant Athletic Director) that
Eliot will assume next year.
No team has consistently given
Michigan more trouble than Eliot's
Illini whenever the two met at
Champaign. Illinois has beaten the
Wolverines four consecutive times
at their home stadium. Michigan
was favored each time.
