By The Associated Press
MINNEAPOLIS - University of Minnesota Athletic Director
Paul Giel says the timetable for picking a basketball coach has
been moved back to allow candidates for the job an opportunity
to visit the school and appear before :he selection committee.
"I imagine it'll take about a week longer than I first expected,"
Giel said Thursday. "We haven't limited our search to just
those who applied. This could be called a comprehensive effort."
The university's search extended to Creighton Coach Tom
Apke Thursday.
A sourceclose to the selection process has told the Associated
Press that Michigan assistant coach Jim Dutcher, mentioned as
a likely replacement for Bill Mussessan, has the support of Giel.
Meanwhile .. .
MINNEAPOLIS-Bob Larsen, a member of the University of
Minnesota's 1972 basketball team, claims he received aid from
recruiter Harvey Mackay in violation of the rules of the National
Collegiate Athletic Association.
In a telephone interview with the Minneapolis Tribune, Larsen
said Mackay arranged for Larsen to sell two season basketball
tickets for $125, about twice their cost; financed a trip home dur-
ing the Thanksgiving holiday, and gave the former player a
refrigerator to use in his dormitory room.
lakers trade Hawkins.
ATLANTA-The Atlanta Hawks of the National Basketball

Association obtained forward Connie Hawkins from the Los An-
geles Lakers yesterday in exchange for a future draft choice and
immediately signed the 6-foot-8 veteran, a Hawks spokesman said.
Hawkins, 31, averaged eight points in 43 games for the Lakers
last season, missing much of the year with an injured hand. He
has a six-year NBA career average of 17.9 points per game.
NFL teams wheel, deal
Among the several transactions brought about yesterday in
the NFL, the Green Bay Packers obtained guard Daryl White-
from the Detroit Lions. White was a member of the 1973 Nebraska
team and a fourth round draft choice of the Cincinnati Bengals
in 1974.
Meanwhile veteran running back Bo Scott was released by the
Cleveland Browns and running back James McAlister was ob-
tained by the Philadelphia Eagles from the Oakland Raiders for
an undisclosed draft choice.
ABC lines u stars

vaney will appear as guest commentators on the first two nationally
televised college football games of the 1975 season, ABC announced

cast of the season, the Missouri-Alabama game on Monday night,
Sept. 8. Devaney, former Nebraska coach, will work the Notre
Dame-Boston College game on Sept. 15.
