Jim Young, Michigan's defen-
sive mastermind for the past
four years, has been named
head football coach at the Uni-
versity of Arizona.
Promising to "do the things
necessary to produce g o o d
teams," Young, 37, leaves the
Michigan staff after four sea-
sons in which the Wolverines led
the Big Ten in total defense each
year. e
Young announced at yester- y
day's press conference in Tus- o
con that he is taking along two 0
Michigan assistant coaches to X
serve in the same capacity at N
Arizona. Larry Smith, who was
the interior offensive line coach i
here, will be the defensive coor- h
dinator for Young, while Mike f
Hankwitz will assume the duties s
as the defensive ends coach. y
Smith was one of the coaches

Miami of Ohio in 1969, while 0

else' ultimatum given him this
year by Arizona officials. The
old and the new coaches met for
ver two hours yesterday with
Weber going over the material
Young would have to work with.
Young emerged from the meet-
ing confident, saying flatly, "I
have been left with a lot of fine
ootball players; we will not con-
ider next season a rebuilding
year."
Young also added that he
would go after the championship
of the Western Athletic Confer-
ence, of which Arizona is a mem-
ber, in his first year. "We're go-
ng to do everything possible to
have a winning program here as
soon as possible."
He also indicated that he will
be the offensive coordinator and
hat he will not follow Schem-
bechler's conservative football
theory. "I am going to place a
great deal of emphasis on de-
veloing a more wide-open brand
of football than we played in
he Big Ten. We will center our
offense around a strong option
game and a versatile passing at-
tack."
Adding weight to his idea of a
wide-open game was his state-
ment that his number one prior-
ty in the recruiting area will be
speed. He said that after look-
ng for players with speed he will
hen go for height and size, in
that order.

ing to stick to the Midwest for
recruiting".
He added that he hopes to have
his entire staff named by the end
of the week ,emphasizing the
fact that he is looking for a
young staff.
Young was chosen from a list
of six coaches Strack interviewed
as possible candidates for the
job. Alex Agase, head coach at
Northwestern withdrew his name
from the running two weeks ago,
and the other chief contender
Purdue coach Tony Mason, said
yesterday he would take the job.
Mason was, reportedly ready to
assume the job but it was re-
ported in the middle of last week
that he couldn't agree with
Strack about the financial mat-
ters of the deal and the hiring
practice of assistant coaches.
Strack said he offered the job
to Young last Friday night at
which time the new Wildcat
coach quickly accepted the post.
Young will meet with the team
today and start his recruiting to-
morrow, leaning heavily to the
California side of the border
which he says is a prime target
area.
Young, Smith, and Hankwitz
will spend the next two weeks
in the synshine before returning
to Michigan for Christmas and
the matter of relocating their
families.
Schembechler was unavailable
for comment concerning the loss
of the three coaches, and the
imminent reshuffling of the Wol-
verine staff..
I n f o r m e d sources, how-
ever have indicated that Gary
Moeller, now the defensive back
coach will replace Young as the
defensive coordinator. The reap-
pearance in Ann Arbor of for-
mer graduate assistant Jeff
Green has brought about snecu-

at Arizona, Dave Strack, is firm-
ly convinced he goth the right
man for the job.
"One of the main criteria we
set for the selection of a new
coach was that he be willing to
give 24 hours a day to help make
us a winner," Strack said. He
added that he had "checked
with his coaching peers, his play-
ers and even the fathers of some
of the players he has been as-

that. Jim can turn our football

The scoring strike was a 40-yard
Lamonica pass to Fred Biletnikoff,
who beat Steve Tannen in the right
corner of the end zone.
The Jets returned the ensuing
kickoff to their own 23 and Namath

A third-down pass was incomplete
and Howfield kicked a 25-yard field
goal tying the score.
The go-ahead 30-yard field goal

when the Raiders' Clarence Davis
fumbled a punt and Roger Finnie
recovered on Oakland's 23.
The Raiders went ahead 17-13 in
