HAYS DAILY NEWS PACK 17 December 12, 1976 Arkansas Razorbacks Hire New York Jets Coach FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (UPI) — The Arkansas Razdr- backs Saturday hired Former New York Jets coach Lou Holtz to replace the recently retired Frank Broyles. , Holtz, who said his jump from New York to Arkansas would be his last voluntary coaching move, was given a 1 five-year contract. The university's board of trustees voted unanimously to follow the recommendation of Broyles, who ended a 19-year coaching career with the Razorbacks with a 144-56-5 record. Broyles stay on as athletic director. "I've never met people who just visited Arkansas," Holtz told a news conference following the trustees' action. "I've just met people who have gone there and stayed. I'll fall into that category." ' Holtz' announcement, delayed for several hours while he telephoned several unidentified people to give them the news, ended what Holtz called "a traumatic week." ' Holtz' name was first tied to the Arkansas job and several other coaching vacancies last week. But Holtz, who came to. ; New York last year following .four successful years at North ..Carolina State, declared he ; would stay with the Jets, who .are 3-104'this season. The next day, he changed his mind and resigned immediately. "It 'wasn't necessarily the New York Jets versus Arkansas, but Lou Holtz versus professional football," Holtz said. "I'm not one to look back. The Lord put eyes in front of your head to look forward, not to look back....I want to tell you there isn't going to be any more moving — not for a week anyway." Holtz said he would wait a while before moving his family to northwest Arkansas, although he would start recruiting immediately. He said he planned to retain most of Broyles' coaching staff, although he has several people he wants to bring into the program. "I don't plan on making a great deal of changes for just the sake of change," Holtz said. He said he left the Jets because he belongs on a college campus. "I'm a teacher. I enjoy teaching. Recruiting doesn't bother me in the least," Holtz said. "Football is a game. The great value of it is that it is a game." Broyles said Holtz' salary would be $36,000 a year, which is the maximum allowed by the state legislature. Broyles became a bit emotional when asked about his years at Arkansas. "It's been a great 19 years," he said. "I've been privileged. When my family came here, it was the luckiest thing that's ever happened." Before joining North Carolina State in 1972, Holtz coached William and Mary to its first Southern Conference title in 23 years. His first team at North Carolina State went 8-3-1 and won the Peach Bowl. The Wolfpack went 9-3 in 1973 with a victory in the Liberty Bowl. The 1974 team finished 9-2-1 including a tie in the Astro Bluebonnet Bowl. The 1975 team went 7-4-1 with a loss in the Peach Bowl. North Carolina State averaged 32 points and 413 yards a game under Holtz. In 22 home games, the Wolfpack lost once and was tied once.

Newhouse lead the Bulldogs with 22 points, followed by Strahm with 16 and Noel with 13. "Roadhouse was good in football and now he's good-in basketball too," Stockton coach Roger Stucky said.

Victoria coach Larry Thurlow wasn't talking about I the 'temperature though. What ''he'-was talking about was the 'cold22 per cent his Knights hit from the field, and the 47-42 loss to the Norton Bluejays. "We played good, defense ; against the taller team, but 1 offensivly, well that's different," Thurlow said.
