EAST LANSING (AP)-Michi-
gan State coach George Perles said
Monday he's run a "super-clean"
football program for the past 12
years, but a university probe is nec-
essary into allegations raised by a
former player.
The Lansing State Journal reported
Sunday and Monday that a former
player, Roosevelt Wagner, raised al-
legations of possible NCAA infrac-
tions. Those included regular pay-
ments to players from boosters and
agents, and changes to athletes' grades
to keep them eligible to play.
"The whole program is dirty,"
Wagner told the Journal in a copy-
right story Monday.

Wagner told The Detroit News in
a report Tuesday that he plotted to
kidnap and kill Perles in 1992...
"I was going to shoot him,"
Wagner, 24, told the newspaper in a
series of tape-recorded telephone in-
terviews.
Wagner said he followed Perles
from the campus to the coach's nome
in Okemos for two days in April 1992,
carrying two loaded pistols. "I was
gonna get him with one of them. I was
gonna kidnap him and take him and
shoot him .."
The former All-Star lineman from
Ravenna, Ohio, said he gave up the
idea after concluding Perles "would
dictate the rest of your life if you did

something like that."
The News said there were no wit-
nesses to the alleged stalking. Michi-
gan State officials said they would
seek a restraining order keeping
Wagner away from the campus and
from Perles if they believed the ex-
player was still a threat to the coach.
Perles declined to be interviewed
about Wagner's account of the plot.
Earlier Monday, however, he de-
fended his conduct of the Spartans'
football program.
"People make allegations and it's
our job and our duty to investigate *
them," Perles said. "I feel very, very
strongly, very, very confident that we
run a super-clean football team."

NEW YORK (AP) - Baseball
owners filed an unfair labor charge
Monday for alleged threats made last
week by three New York players:
Bobby Bonilla, John Franco and Scott
Kamieniecki.
Franco, a free agent who relieved
for the Mets last season, was quoted
as saying he would "go after" with
his "fists" any player he broke ranks
and attempted to play while the union
was on strike.
Bonilla, a Mets outfielder, was
quoted as saying any player who
crossed a picket line would "end up
in the East River."
Kamieniecki, a Yankees pitcher,
said that after a settlement he might
throw at players who broke ranks.

The three are player representa-
tives and members of the union's ex-
ecutive board.
"The threats and other similar
threats made by agents of the union
were intended, and reasonably
tend, to restrain and coerce major
league players," said the charge,
which was filed with the regional
office of the National League Re-
lations Board.
"Such comments are appalling and
serve no practical purpose in a civi-
lized society," management negotia-
tor Richard Ravitch said. "The clubs
have every intent to resolve their cur-
rent labor dispute with the union at
the bargaining table. The clubs have
made no plans whatsoever to employ

replacement players. Nonetheless, we
cannot ignore or excuse such virulent
behavior."
Bonilla and Franco made the re-
marks during an appearance to pro-
mote a celebrity bowling event.
Under the National Labor Rela-
tions Act, unioned workers are al-
lowed to cross picket lines and con-
tinue to work during a strike.
"Comments by anyone that
threaten other individuals with harm
for exercising their rights are inap-
propriate and wrong," said Eugene
Orza, the union's associate general
counsel. "I don't know if the players
said what was reported ... Players
shouldn't say those things."
No negotiations are scheduled.

ATHENS,Ohio (AP)-Ohio head
football coach Tom Lichtenberg was
reassigned Monday, two days after his
team dropped to 0-8 on the season.
Lichtenbergin his fifth year at Ohio,
will be reassigned to other duties in the
athletic department after completing
this season.
Ohio President Robert Glidden said
Lichtenberg was not fired, but had asked
for reassignment.
But at his weekly media luncheon

following the university's news con-
ference, Lichtenberg said, "They don't
want to say I got fired. And that's
probably not the right word for it, but I
didn't ask to give up the football job. In
the press conference this morning, they
said I asked to be reassigned. I did not
ask to be reassigned."
Lichtenberg also said, "There is no
resignation, I didn't resign."
Glidden said Lichtenberg probably
will work in marketing and fund-rais-

ing.
The Bobcats are 0-6 in the Mid-
American Conference after Saturday's
22-10 loss to Central Michigan.
Lichtenberg is 8-42-2 since he be-
gan coaching at Ohio in 1989, and has
a career record of 26-56-3 as a head
coach at Morehead State, Maine and
Ohio.
Ohio has not won a Mid-American
Conference title since 1968 and has not
had a winning season since 1982.
