HOCKEY COACH'S INTERESTS DIVERSIFIED:

j

Africa

in

Farrell's

past

By BOB MILLER
Many people recognize thef
name Dan Farrell and correct-,
ly associate it with the coach
of the Michigan hockey team.
But, most people know little
about the man, how he got to
Ann Arbor and why.
Farrell is not your average
hockey coach. He has spent
time teaching in Africa and
is an exploratory geologist.
For the time being, however,
Farrell is more interested in the
ice age at Yost than the ice age
in Northern Canada.
Farrell, aanative of Hamilton,
Ontario, played hockey from
1956-60 as a right wing at Michi-
gan Tech.
Ier went to graduate school
at McMasters and the Uni-
versity of Torontosand then
wept to Rhodesia as an edu-
cational advisor to Africa for
the Ministry of Education.
"I was there six months, then
Rhodesia, declared its independ-
ence from Britain and we were
required to leave the country,"
said Farrell.
sThen I was in Ghana for
two-and-a-half years at teacher-
training schools and high
schools," he said.

main responsibility was re-
cruiting. "I had to be a sales-
man and sell players the in-
stitution. I had unique prob-
lems at Michigan Tech be-
cause of the location," Far-
rell said, but added, "I'm not
so sure it's any easier here."
Asked if academics are im-
portant to him when trying to
sell a player on Michigan, Far-
rell leaned back in his chair
and said "yes" without hesi-
tation.
"There are some fine students
in our program," he said.

LYTLE TAKES THIRD
P se ie

NEW YORK () - Tony Dorsett of Pitts-
burgh yesterday won the Heisman Trophy
as "the outstanding college football player in
the United States."
Dorsett was a landslide winner over run-
ner-up Ricky Bell, Southern California run-
ning back, and Michigan's Rob Lytle.
DORSETT received 701 first place votes,
112 for second place and 30 for third place
for a total of 2,357 points. Bell received 73
first, 485 seconds and 157 thirds for 1,346
points. Lytle's totals were 35-85-138 for 413
points.
"I guess this makes up for not winning
it last year," said Dorsett, who finished in
the 1975 voting behind Ohio State's Archie
Griffin, California's Chuck Muncie and Bell.
DORSETT'S achievements are the Heis-
man, the single-season record of 1,948 yards,

the NCAA career mark of 6,082, and the all-
time scoring total of 356 points.
"The only goal I ever set for myself was
100 yards a game," said , Dorsett, "Every-
thing after that was gravy.'
"I've accomplished every goal except a
national championship, and if we accom-
plish that feat I'll have no regrets about
this season, none at all," said Dorsett.
