GRIDDES!!!t

Ocker to step down
From Staff Reports

After nearly 30 years of involve-
Tnent with Michigan athletics - the
last 13 as the Associate Athletic Di-
ector for Women's Athletics -
Phyllis Ocker has announced her re-
trement, effective Jan. 1, 1991.
x Ocker, 64, is responsible for
transforming the women's program
(0om an idea into a competitive and
successful Big Ten program that has
iicluded seven conference titles.
"Phyllis Ocker has served the
University of Michigan for more
than 30 years and she has done a su-
perb job," Interim Athletic Director
fack Weidenbach said.
"She has made a strong contribu-
tion to the overall management of
ige athletic department and in the
Thort time that I have had direct con-
*act with her, she has done an excel-
lint job of improving the women's
pogram at Michigan," he added.
: Ocker's stay at Michigan began
ii September of 1961, when she
started as an assistant professor in
Nuggets'
::DENVER (AP) - Doug Moe,
(Ee wise-cracking coach of the Den-
V r Nuggets for 10 years, stepped
Own Thursday after months of
speculation about his job status.
The departure of Moe was not a
$irprise as the Nuggets, purchased
list year by Bertram Lee, Peter By-
noe and Robert Wussler, continue to
shake up the front office and team
make-up.
General Manager Bernie Bicker-
staff, who recently left the Seattle
SuperSonics to help restructure the
Nuggets, would not address ques-
tions on who would replace Moe.
"All parties agree it is best if we
move in another direction," Nuggets
president Carl Scheer said at a news
conference. "The very success of an
NBA franchise in Denver, and the
fact that there is even a team here, is
because of Doug Moe. I would like
eto think of this as a period of tribute
instead of mourning."
Moe coached the San Antonio
Spurs for four seasons, compiling a
a 177-135 record, before coming to the
Nuggets as an assistant coach in
1980. He was promoted to head
coach midway through the 1980-81
season. His 10-year record in Denver
was 432-357, and he led the Nuggets
to two Midwest Division titles,

physical education. She coached
Michigan's field hockey team for
five seasons (1974-78), compiling a
33-33-3 record before succeeding
Virginia Hunt in 1978 as the third
women's athletic director.
"Serving as women's athletic di-
rector has been an interesting profes-
sional experience," Ocker said.
"Steady improvement and positive
change have been the hallmarks of
my tenure.
"The alumni support, especially
from the local groups, has been out-
standing with scholarships and the
senior luncheon as examples."
Ocker earned her master's degree
from Smith College and began her
coaching career at the University of
Oregon in 1958.
"The women's program is in
good shape and we have an outstand-
ing staff. I would hope to see the
program flourish. We have a good
base and whoever comes in can take
it to the next level."

oe resigns
winning Coach of the Year honors
in 1987-88. Last March, he became
the 11th coach in NBA history to
win 600 games.
Moe, emotional during his re-
marks Thursday, said he has had dis-
cussions in the past few weeks with
Bickerstaff and Bynoe. At a meeting
Wednesday night, it was decided to
end the relationship.
"When a new ownership group
comes in, I think they need their
own identity," Moe said.
"Personally, I don't think this is a
bad move for them. We weren't able
to work things out and the organiza-
tion decided to go another way. I
wish them the best of luck. I have
no regrets whatsoever, no animosity.
But after 10 years, it's tough to
leave the people you're close to."

After word of Griddes' return reached Jordan, people packed up and ran for the closest newspaper stand in which they could participate in this
weekly contest. To no avail, they discovered that Griddes is a Daily exclusive.

. , ,_,

This will serve as an introduc-
tion to the Daily's own weekly
pick-a-game to first-year players.
It's called Griddes and, no, it's not
pronounced like those things
engineers use to map coordinates.
Each week, we will list 20 col-
lege football games in which you

need to select the winner. The
painfully obvious object is to cor-
rectly choose all 20 winners and
hope nobody else does. Included in
the 20 games will be the one
involving Slippery Rock Univer-
sity, but don't fret if you miss
their scoring summary on Sports-

center or Headline News. At each
Michigan home football game,
The Rock's score will be
announced.
Griddes will appear as a part of
Sports Monday, beginning this
coming week, and all entries must
be turned into the Daily offices on

the top floor of the Student Publi-
cations Building at 420 Maynard
by Friday at 5 p.m.
The person who correctly picks
the most games will win the fabu-
lous prize offered for that week -
like a dinner for two at one of Ann
Arbor's finest eating establish-
ments.

MY DEGREE GOT ME THE INTERVIEW
ARMY ROTC GOT ME THE JOB.
Things got pretty competitive for this job. I'm sure
my college degree and good grades kept me in the
running. But in the end it was the leadership and
management experience I got through Army ROTC
that won them over.
