Musselman admits violating NCAA rules

By The Associated Press
ST. PETER, Minn.-Bill Mus-
selman, former University of
Minnesota basketball coach, ad-
mitted yesterday that he had
violated National Collegiate Ath-
letic Association rules by giv-
ing rent money to one player
and transportation money to an-
Musselman, who left Minne-
sota this week to become coach
of the American Basketball As-
sociation's San Diego Conquis-
tadors, also said he "had a
feeling" other players were get-
ting illegal financial help from
other sources.
In an interview at his bas-
ketball camp for boys is St.
Peter, Musselman acknowl-
edged giving Ron Behagen
rent money in 1971-72 and
72-73. and giving Rick Me-
Cutcheon transportation money
in 1973-74.
"Behagen had personal prob-
lems and McCutcheon needed
money to get home," Mussel-
man said. 'The money came
from my pocket, and my con-
science is clear about helping
them. Everything I had to do
with the major violations has
been revealed in those cases."
The NCAA sent the university
a list of 100 alleged rules vio-
lations earlier this month, giv-
ing the school until Oct. 1 to
Musselman, who announced

he was changing jobs about a
week after the NCAA letter
arrived, said he feels most of
the NCAA allegations are
minor, such as Gopher players
visiting Musselman's summer
camp without notice or assist-
ant coaches watching high
school players practice.
Musselman said he believed
some players were getting ille-
gal help from outside sources
before he became coach of the
Gophers in the fall of 1971. But
he refused to point his finger at
any person, and said he prom-
ised no illegal help in recruiting
players during his four years at
Several players, including Be-
hagen, have said they received
money from Minneapolis busi-
nessman Harvey Mackay. Mac-
kay has admitted buying tickets
from a Wlayer, which is a viola-
tion of NCAA rules, but has de-
nied giving any players money.
Musselman, 34, said he feels
he is being made a scapegoat
by some supporters of the uni-
" I feel I am taking the
brunt of the blame," he said.

The university has refused to
release the list of NCAA
University President C. Peter
Magrath and Vice President
Stanley B. Kegler said in a let-
ter Wednesday to the university

Board of Regents that the list
would not be released "because
the charges have not been sub-
stantiated and because they in-
volve the reputations and civil
rights of a significant number
of individuals, including private
citizens over which this univer-
sity has no jurisdiction."
The letter said some of the

charges are of technical minor
infractions and some are "in
our judgment serious, pro-
vided there is foundation in
The university has appointed
an - outside investigator, Minne-
apolis attorney Joseph J. Dixon,
to look into the charges ano

Verdict in on Ganakas--he stays

By The Associated Press
Gus Ganakas will stay on for
the 1975-76 season as head bas-
ketball coach at Michigan State
University, the school said yes-
The announcement laid to
rest reports that Ganakas
would leave the post this sum-
Michigan State became the
focus of controversy last year
when all its black varsity play-
ers staged a one-game boycott.
In May, the three white basket-
ball players on the team de-
cided not to return to the squad
next year.
GANAKAS' contract ran out
July 1. He said two days later
that Michigan State officials
had discussed the possibility of
his reassignment, but had of-
fered no specific post.
"Because of the unwarranted
speculation about his status
that is harmful to both Coach
Ganakas and the basketball
program, I am making this
statement that he will remain
as coach for the 1975-76 sea-
son," Michigan State Athletic
Director Burt Smith announced.
Smith's reference to unwar-
ranted speculation" apparently
was aimed at the State News,

the student newspaper.
Questioned by the State News
earlier this month, Smith re-
fused to confirm that Ganakas
would be back next season as
basketball coach. But Smith
said today that "the program
will continue as it has in the
past to receive the full support
of the athletic department."
THIS expression of adminis-
trative support, endorsement
and confidence in our basket-
ball staff and program pleases
me," Ganakas said. "I feel se-
cure, in a strong position of
coaching strength."
Ganakas, with a one - year
contract, has academic tenure
and would remain at Michigan
State in some capacity unless
he chose to leave or was found
to be incompetent.
The basketball coach said a
one-year reconfirmation of his
position, rather than several
years, is "standard procedure"
although school officials report-
edly were trying to get Ga-
nakas on a three-year contract
in return for his giving up aca-
demic tenure.

Evidently irritated by the
speculation, Smith said in a
200-word statement, "It is not
customary to annually reap-
point or reaffirm a coach's du-
ties. Last year, the Michigan
State basketball team achieved
its finest record in eight years."
THE TEt SM'S record last
year was 17-9. In May, two
white nlavers, Jeff Tropf and
Mark Palace, said they plan-
. ned to leave for other schools.
James D dlev. the third white
on the team, also announced he
was going to transfer.
The State News reported the
trio left in the aftermath of
the niversitv's failure to sign
7-foot-2 center Tom Dore.
