ombardi asks
Offered post as owner, coach,
general manager of Redskins

GREEN BAY, Wis. (')-Vince
Lombardi said yesterday that he
was terminating "a great 10 years"
as master of the Green Bay Pack-
ers to join the Washington Red-
skins, who offered him the one
thing beyond his reach in the Wis-
consin city where he made his
legend-part ownership in the
football team.
But for the moment, his an-
nouncement stood alone.
Packer President Dominic Olej-
niczak. said a formal announce-
ment that the 55-year-old Lom-
bardi had been freed to become
executive vice president, general
manager and coach of the Red-
skins would be delayed at least
until today and perhaps a day
Lombardi's contract with the
n o n p'r o f i t, community-owned
Green Bay National Football
League club runs to Jan. 31, 1974,
and has a clause that unless
waived would bar him from coach-
ing any other team during that
A Emerging from a session with
the Packer executive board, Lom-
bardi Itold newsmen that- a "sub-
stantial position of equity" was
the deciding factor'in his accept-
ance of the Redskin post just one
year after he decided to give up
coaching the Packers and concen-
Mathis chops Chuvalo
NEW YORK (P) - Big Buster
Mathis came on strong from the
fifth round on to chop out a un-
animous, decision over cut and
bloodied George Chuvalo of Can-'
ada in a foul-packed 12-rounder
at Madison Square Garden last
The heavyweights staged a
fierce battle through the first four
rounds as the crowd of 14,155
But from then on Mathis, box-
ing nimbly as a welterweight, piled
up points with left jabs, left
hooks, right uppercuts and com-
binations to Chuvalo's battered
face. Chuvalo concentrated mostly
on the big boy's blubbery body.

trate on administrative duties as
general manager.
"Like anyone else, you always
hope to own something at one
time or another," said Lombardi,
"and if it is in a field that you
know best, it's always a plus."
Lombardi came smiling from
the session with the board and
said, "I have asked for my re-
lease. Everything is fine. There's
no problem with the board.' I've
just got a contract. I'm waiting
for them-for their move."
But Olejniczak told newsmen
shortly after, "This is not an or-
dinary matter to consider. The
Packer executive committee wants
to give it full consideration.
Only minutes after Lombardi
announced in Green Bay that he
had accepted the post of Wash-
ington coach, general manager
and executive .vice president, the
Redskins' club president, Edward
Bennett Williams, told a news
conference there was nothing to
announce yet.
"We have had conversations
looking toward his coming to
Washington. I can't say anything
more to you on this subject," Wil-
liams said.
Williams called a news confer-
ence, presumably for the Lom-
bardi announcement, at midday
yesterday. Then as the Green Bay
meetings dragged on, Williams
called off the session indefinitely.
The long wait in Washington
didn't end untilnLombardi
emerged from the Green Bay
meeting to tell, newsmen he had
taken the Redskins job. Williams,
after a telephone talk with Lon-
bardi, entered for the news con-
ference-only to say he had noth-
ing to announce.
Williams. one of the nation's
most noted attorneys said he
couldn't comment on what Lom-
bardi had said in Green Bay.
Williams added only. "I hope I'll
be able to say something to you
very quickly."
Williams, unsmiling was brusque
at his news conference. He turned
away questions and abruptly
stalked out less than five minutes
after the session began.
Lombardi coached the Packers

to 'n unprecendented five NFL;
championships in seven years and
two Super Bowl crowns before
abandoning the post after the
1967-68 season to become full-time
general manager.
He said being coach and general}
manager simultaneously involved
too much work.
In the subsequent 1968-69 sea-
son, the Packers slumped to their;
worst session since before the
Lombardi decade.
Rumors cropped up that he was1
being offered a position with vari-
ous clubs.
He either denied them, or saidt

kept thinking he might come
along." Keen says. "But every
time he wrestled in practice he
hurt his shoulder. He has a deep

injury in his back and they don't
know quite what it is."
If he had come, he would have
split the duties at 130 with junior
Hudson. As it was, Hudson didn't
really need assistance. He got the
first dual meet pin of his career
against Ohio State's Jay Swaidner.
Almost pinning Swaidner in the

heavyweight Jesse Rawls. Wres-

frequently he would not quit
Green Bay during a losing season.
The Washington Post said in
its Sunday editions that Lombardi
woud ask Green Bay tb free him
from the remaining five years of
his contract.
The Washington Evening Star
said the arrangement with the
Redskins needed nothing more
than Lombardi's signature.


Kentucly steamrollers Auburn;
Kansas sails to 1000th victory

LEXINGTON, Ky. (R) - Ken-
tucky blew an 11-point lead and
overcame a 42-point performance
by John Mengelt last night to
hand Auburn a 105-93 .Southeast-
ern Conference basketball defeat.
The Wildcats, ranked fifth in
the nation, had their troubles in-
til the final 12 mintues of the
game ,when they broke away from
a 64-64 tie and were never headed
after that,
Lan Issel, who led Kentucky
with 36 points, started- the last
half drive with a tip-in and less
than a minute later added a lay-
up and a free throw for a three-
point play.
It was Issel again on a lay-in
with 10:45 to go that gave Ken-
tucky a 71-68 lead and Mike Cas-
ey's stolen lay-in and two free
throws by Mike Pratt made it
Pratt finished the game with
22 points and Casey with 20.

The Buffaloes forged a 78-73
