joins Crosby field trying to cool red-hot Miller INDEPENDENT (AM) ', PEBBLE BEACH (UPR --Jack Nicklaus said Wednesday he's hot sure where his game stands at the moment, but he's ready for red-hot Johnny Miller and 166 other pros starting today in the $185,000 Bing Crosby Naipnal Pro-Am. · Nicklaus has been practicing in Florida for more than two weeks and will be making his 1975 debut on the PGA tour. Jack has won three Crosby titles, the U.S. Amateur and the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, one of three '-seaside, courses they use in the Crosby, and he said, he'd rather play Pebble than any other course in America. : "Pebble Beach always is a challenge for me," said the man who has won a record 14 major titles, "and I always like a challenge." Nicklaus is due for one this week if Miller, who won the Phoenix and Tucson Opens by a combined total of 49-under par to launch the 1975 tour, stays Cleveland hires Gregg as coach CLEVELAND (AP)Forrest Gregg was appointed head coach.of the Cleveland Browns Wednesday, receiving a three-year · contract to succeed Nick Skorich, fired shortly after the National Football League team completed a 4-10 season, the worst in the club's 28-year history. Art Modell, owner of the Browns, said he informed Gregg of his decision early Wednesday morning and that the final decision came down to Gregg or Monte :Clark, a former Browns player now the offensive line coach 1 with the Miami Dolphins. The 41-year-old Gregg was the Browns' offensive line coach last season. He had Ms football training under one of football's greatest legacies--Vince Lombardi. Gregg started his pro football career in 1956 , Prep soccer 'Suburban League Glenn 6. Havfalr 0. Ccrritos 3, Gahr 2. Excelsior 3, Artcsia I. when the Green Bay Packers drafted him No. 2 out of Southern Methodist University. He spent 14 years' as a player for the 1 Packers while Lombard! was building his dynasty, and playe'd on the team when they won NFL titles in 1965,1966 and 1967.. Lombard! referred to Gregg in his book Run to Daylight as "the finest player I have ever coached." In 1969 Gregg became a player-coach of the Packers and, in 1971, he joined the Dallas Cowboys hi the same dual role. After that season he became a coach with the San Diego Chargers. He signed a two-year contract as Browns offensive line coach prior to the 1974 campaign. Modell said that he talked to many people around the league before deciding on Greeg. "I talked with B a r t Starr and Willie Davis and many of his other former teammates at the Packers and there was nothing but praise for him," Modell said. . . hot. Hardly anyone else is given a chance, even though all but five of last year's top 38 money winners are in the Crosby field. Miller already has won $70,000 this year and if he takes the Crosby, it will mark the first time a player has triumphed in the first three events two years in a row. John says flatly he's ready for Jack and the challenge of winning again. "My game is solid," said Miller, "so there is no reason why I shouldn't feel confident. Frankly, I think 'the pressure this week is on Jack. He hasn't played in a long time and his game probably isn't as,sharp as it could be." . -, The only players from last year's top 38 not here are PGA champ Lee Trevino, Gary Player, J.C. Snead, Miller Barber and Bert Yancey'. Trevino is not feeling all that well while Player never competes on the/winter tour. The other three simply did not enter. One player who should not be overlooked is · John Mahaffey, who finished in a tie for sixth in the Phoenix and was second at Tucson. In the latter event, Mahaffey wound up at 16-under p a r , good enough to win most tournaments but Miller finished at 25-under. "Someone should give Miller a saliva test to see if he's for real," Mahaffey quipped. "I'm playing very Well and I have to think my chances are as good as Miller's and Nicklaus' this week. It will be interesting." The weather this week on the Monterey Peninsula has been summer-like and the forecast is for more of the same through Sunday. That would be an upset of sorts since the Crosby has been popularized over the years by inclement weather, even including snow in 1962. As a result of the fine forecast, tournament offi-. cials are predicting record crowds for an event that usually attracts 75,000 for the week. Last year was a disaster due to ram and Miller, after two washouts in a row, was declared the winner and received three-quarters of the original pot. There are 168 amateurs here, too. Like the pros, they will play a round each at Pebble, Spyglass Hill and Cypress Point. The low 60 pros and the low 25 pro-am, teams will play the final round--at Pebble Beach on Sunday. Because of the weather and the good condition of the three courses, they will allow lifting and placing only on the seventh and llth holes at Spyglass. In past years, bumping was allowed on all holes of the three courses. WORLD CHAMPION OF SOCCER AT COLISEUM SUNDAY, JAN. 26 2:30 P.M. INDEPENDENT! THE CHAMPION OF THE WORLD Of BUENOS AIRES.
