Bill Musselman flees to s
By The Associated Press
SAN DIEGO - Bill Musselman, whose
basketball program at .the University of
Minnesota was under investigation for
possible violations of NCAA rules, was
named coach of the San Diego franchise
in the American Basketball Association
Musselman, at 35 the youngest coach
in pro basketball, signed a three-year
contract to direct one of the league's
two teams which failed to make last
spring's post-season play-offs.
Frank Goldberg and Bud Fisher,
joint owners of the team, also an-
nounced that Irv Kaze, a baseball
publicist, was the team's new gen-
eral manager. They said the club,
which previously was known as the
Conquistadores, would be called the
Sails in the future.
Musselman took over as basketball
coach at Minnesota in 1972 and imme-
diately directed the team to a Big Ten
title. He reviped interest in the sport in
Minnesota and filled the school's 17,500-
seat coliseum, but he was frequently the
center of controversy.
A number of players quit the team
during his tenure," and Musselman be-
came known as a disciplinarian who
conducted rugged practices..
The coach and the program came
in for public scrutiny recently when
it was learned the NCAA was inves-
tigating on estimated . 100 possible
violations of its rules. Musselman
said some alleged violations con-
cerned the basketball program and
he said he had retained an attorney.
But at a news conference here Mon-
day he said he would have nothing to
do with the NCAA probe at Minnesota
in the future.
"I feel I have a very clear con-
science," he said of the NCAA investi-
gation. "The investigation is of the uni-
versity, not of a single individual, and
I am no longer a member of the Uni-
versity of Minnesota."
Gibron goes WFL
CHICAGO - Abe Gibron, fired as
head coach of the Chicago Bears after
the National Football League season,
was named coach of the World Football
League's Chicago Winds yesterday, re-
placing Babe Parinli.
Gene Pullano, president of the
Winds, announced that Leo Cahill of
Memphis Southmen was named gen-
eral manager of the Winds, a posi-
tion also held previously by Pa-
Pullano made the announcement at a
news conference. He did not specify any
reasons for Parili's firing other than to
say, "It's almost a conflict to have a
man as both general manager and head
Pullano added that Winds' attor-
neys were meeting with attorneys
for Parilli to discuss the multiyear
contract which Parili signed earlier
this year when the Winds were or-
ganized to replace the defunct Chi-
cago Fire of WFL.
"i don't think it was necessarily
Babe. We felt we had to start with a top
man and then start from scratch," Pul-
lano added. Both Gibron and Cahill, were
signed to multiyear contracts, Pullano
said, but the details were not disclosed.
NEW ORLEANS - The Superdome
Commission found out yesterday that the
networks won't let the stadium use their
instant replays on the six big television
screens overhanging the playing field.
Superdome commissioners, who
will open the $164 million facility in
a few days, ready or not, professed
to be aghast. The screens, each 22-
by-26 feet, cost $1.3 million.
The instant replay issue was the sec-
ond shocks of the commission meeting.
The first was a vote to go ahead and
accept the facility on a "partial occu-
pancy" basis Aug. 1.
Since $1 million worth of work re-
mains to be done, taking occupancy
early could be a legal boon to the
contractors later if complications
develop. But instant replay touched
off the big flap.
