ApriT 9.1971- S fw:-tt>^yw::^ John McKay to stay on man, nights as j roian head coach he set a meet J (UPI) Heckl of Southern LOS ANGELES(UPI)Those people who expect John McKay to step down as football coach at the University of Southern California after next season can forget it. He says he has no such thoughts. The 47-year-old McKay said Thursday that he will remain at the Trojans' grid helm after he succeeds the retiring Jess Hill as athletic director at Southern Cal in June. 1972. "I'm going to do both." he answered in response to a question at a pre-spring practice luncheon. "It can be done." "It's a matter of not getting tied down with stuff you yourself don't have to do." McKay, who will start his 12th season as head coach at Southern Cal next fall, cited Bob Devaney of Nebraska as America's No. l athletic director-football coach. "Look at his record." he pointed out. Then he quipped in the usual McKay fashion: "The problem with being athletic director is that everybody wants to add one more sport and cut the budget at the same time." While the Trojan coach tabbed Washington and California as the teams to beat in next season's Pacific-8 race, he admitted: "There's no way we cannot be the favorite. That's the standard statement. I've already read where the coaches say that we should win it all." Southern Cal was favored to go to its fifth straight Rose Bowl last season. The Trojans fell on their faces, finishing with a 6-t-l record that included a 45-20 loss to UCLA. McKay was in Palm Springs instead of Pasadena last New Year's Day. He watched USCs Rose Bowl replacement, Stanford, upset Ohio State on television. "Sure I missed being there," be said. Southern Cal has "something to prove" after last year's "disappointing record,"hesaid. "We have to come back. If we're the king, we have to play like one." Last season's Trojans piled up 4.966 total yards but also allowed more points—233—than any previous USC team. "Our defense needs to be completely rebuilt." McKay said. "It was defensively that our team collapsed last year." His offense? "It should be improved. And that was a helluva lot of yards we gained last year considering we won a national championship in the past with 3,200 yards." The USC coach also revealed that Jimmy Jones, a senior and the Trojans' starting quarterback the past two years, will have to beat out junior Mike Rae. his understudy a year ago. for the job. "Rae has tremendous potential and we have to play him," McKay said. "We beard a lot of rumors that we wanted to red shirt him but we prefer to play him. "If I had to make a decision today on who to start, I honestly couldn't say." O.J. Simpson's old position, tailback, will be filled by either junior Rod McNeill or senior Lou Harris, while senior Sam Cunningham will be the starting fullback. The Trojans open spring practice Tuesday. Black Hawks all alone in playoff standings Trouble with weeds? Your Standard Man Brent Reedy can solve your problem. He's In Rtdlands 792-1445 oa •ICaBbnk By UPI Just as they did for most of the season in their own division, the Chicago Black Hawks stand alone today among the Stanley Cup contenders with a two- game lead in their playoff series. But. most hockey fans will have to agree, all the fun seems to be happening over in Boston and New York. While Chicago was ripping the Philadelphia Flyers 6-2 in routine fashion Thursday night to take a 2-0 lead in their best- of-seven quarter-final series, the Bruins incredibly blew a four-goal lead to drop a 7-5 decision to the Montreal Canadiens. And in New York, Ranger wing Vic Hadfield took out his frustrations by flinging Toronto goalie Bernie Parent's face mask into the crowd during a 4-1 Maple Leaf victory. In the other playoff, the St. Louis Blues defeated the Minnesota North Stars 4-2. This left all of the series, with the exception of Chicago- Philadelphia, deadlocked at a game apiece with action on all four fronts resuming Saturday. After Yvan Coumoyer scored for Montreal in the opening minutes of the game, Boston countered with five consecutive goals to take a 5-1 advantage. But Henri Richard started the Canadiens back at 15:33 of the second period, and they got five more goals in the final session to complete the incredible comeback. Jean Beliveau scored the first two goals in the third period and, after Coumoyer tied the score with his second goal of the night, Beliveau set up John Ferguson for the winner at 15:23. Frank Mahovlich picked up the final goal with 1:20 left to play. "(didn't say anything special before the third period," Montreal Coach A) MacNeil said. "I didn't have to say anything. They knew the situation. We've got a good hockey club but we've still got a long way to go." Boston Coach Tom Johnson, obviously distressed with the sluggish play of the Bruins, said the team "just let down in the final period. We thought we had the game won." The loss broke Boston's all- time playoff record of 11 consecutive victories and Johnson refused to default goalie Ed Johnson for the loss, citing instead the overall weak defensive play of everyone else. Gerry Cheevershad been in the Boston net during all 11 games of the streak. Johnston, who has lost aD three of his playoff games in the last three years, said, "You can't win playoff hockey giving them five breakaways. We bad them and we let them go." Paul Henderson scored two goals for Toronto, his third and fourth of the series, and Garry Monahan and Dave Keen added one each. Two separate free- for-alls erupted in the final five minutes, and it was during the first brawl that Hadfield threw Parent's mask in the stands. Despite a )5-minute search, the mask couldn't be found and Parent, without a spare, sat out the rest of the game in favor of Jacques Plante. Coody leads Masters golf tournament AUGUSTA^ Ga. (UPD-The way Texan Charlie Coody figures it, the nightmare he lived through two years ago when he let a chance at the Masters golf championship slip through his fingers may be just the thing that wins it for him this year. The 33-year-old Coody, who never has won a major championship in eight years as a tournament golfer, stormed out of the pack with a siz- under-par 66 in Thursday's opening round of the Masters to grab a three-stroke lead over five golfers tied at 69. And the thought in everyone's mind, including Charlie Coody's, was—remember 1969. That was the year when the wild final round of the Masters suddenly found Coody the leader as he walked toward the 16th tee, three boles to play. But something happened mere under the towering southern pines and the Abilene, Tex., pro bogeyed every one of those last three holes to finish two strokes behind winner George Archer. "What I learned from that helped me to win another tournament later that year, the Cleveland Open," he said. "Maybe someday it will help me to win a major championship—maybe this one this year." Coody, tall, slope-shouldered, and laconic, seized the first- round lead with a three-birdie burst from the 13th through the 15th holes just when it seemed that 69 probably would be good enough for first place. In the five-way tie at 69 were Bob Murphy. Don January, Ray Floyd. Bob Lunn, and dark- horse Hale Irwin. Tied at 70, four strokes behind Coody. were tournament favorite Jack Nicklaus and Dale Douglass. At one-under- par 71 were Bert Yancey, Tom Weiskopf, and 47-year-old Art Wall, and a dozen were tied at par 72, including defending champion Billy Casper and the man he beat in last year's playoff. Gene Littler, plus South African Gary Player. Arnold Palmer, after "the worst round I've played this year," was in another logjam at 73. along with Archer and U.S. Open champion Tony Jacklin of England. Alex Hannum Denver as top man joins DENVER (UPI)-AIex Hannum. the wandering minstrel of the pro basketball circuit, said farewell to San Diego Thursday and joined the Denver Rockets of the American Basketball Association as head coach, general manager and president. "We agreed not to reveal the terms, but it's the most lucrative contract I've ever signed," Hannum said. "It's a very, very happy day for me. It's the culmination of many years of searching for the right position. I hope to make Denver my home from now on." Hannum, who signed a five- year contract with Denver, had coached the San Diego Rockets since 1969. San Diego finished third in the National Basketball Association's Pacific Division last season with a 40-tt win-toss mark. The 40-year-old Hannum has had five jobs in the ABA and NBA since 1956. During that period, he won three championships —with the St. Louis Hawks in 1957-58, the Philadelphia 76ers of the NBA in 198667, and with the Oakland Oaks of the ABA in 1968-69. "Our first priority is player personnel," Hannum said. "Well have to study the draft list, then go out and try to sign the players." SHORT RIBS by Frank OXMI
