SPORTS SHORTS:
Steelers name Noll head coach

j

By The Associated Press
PITTSBURGH - Chuck Noll,
an assistant coach for the Balti-
more Colts, was named head foot-.
ball coach of the Pitsburgh Steel-
ers yesterday.
And the luckless Pittsburgh
team is hoping some of his experi-
ence with the National Football
League champions will rub off.
Noll, 27, is a veteran of nine
years of coaching experience. He
joined the Colts in 1966 under his
former Cleveland Brown team-
mate, Coach Don Shula. Noll play-
ed offensive guard and linebacker,
for the Browns from 1953 to 1959.
Noll, like his predecessor, Bill
Austin, has moved into the top
Steelers spot from relative ob-
scurity.
Austin, who was an assistant
coach for the Los Angeles Rams,
was fired in December after com-
piling an 11-28-3 record during
his three years with the Steelers.,
' Joe Paterno, who coached Penn
State to an undefeated season,
including an Orange Bowl victory,
turned down the Steelers' job
earlier this month.
The Steelers reportedly offered
Paerno a $70,000-a-year contract
over five years.
Rooney said Noll got a three-
year contract, but declined to com-
ment on the salary. "That's con-
fidential," he said.

Pitt gets coach
PITTSBURGH - Carl DePas-
qua, who created two small college
football powers, Sunday was given
the job of pulling Pittsburgh out
of the losing columns.
The Pitt graduate said it didn't
bother him a bit that he was fifth
choice, or lower, to try to return
Pitt football to its glory days.
"I don't have any qualms at,
all," said the former backfield
start of the 40s.
But he acknowledged that it
wasn't 'going to be easy to build
a winning attitude after three
straight 1-9 seasons.
"It's going to be a tough situa-
tion,' he told a news conference
barely 2 hours after he got the
phone call from Athletic Director

of one-month Cas Myslinski ask-
ing him to take the job as head
football coach. "It's going to take
time."
Myslinski turned down by four,
big name coaches, said he was
glad the search was over. "I've
gotten four years experience in
one month," he said.
He wouldn't talk about the
terms of the contract. "We've
going to try to keep him forever,"
Myslinski said. "We shook hands
and we've got a coach," he said.
