AMES (AP) - Iowa State basketball Coach Johnny Orr has named Charlie Harrison of New Mexico to be one of his assistants. Harrison, 30, is the first assistant chosen by the former Michigan coach. "A person would have to be a nut not to want to work for Johnny Orr," Harrison said Sunday in a telephone Interview. "Johnny called me, then I applied for the job. It was very flattering. I came up for an interview Thursday." Harrison took over at New Mexico after Lobo Coacah Norm Ellenberger and assistant Manny Goldstein lost their jobs In a transcript scandal this year. He coached the Lobos to a 6-22 record after most of his players were either suspended or declared Ineligible because of the transcript scandal. Most of the remaining players were walk-ons. "But they played their little butts off," Harrison said. "The situation forced me to improve as a coach because I did everything by myself. I had only a graduate assistant to help me." Harrison was to remain as an assistant next year under new coach Gary Colson. A native of Scotland Neck, N.C., Harrisoon graduated from Guilford College in 1971. He was a graduate assistant under Bobby Knight at Indiana and an assistant at Clemson, Oklahoma and Buffalo in the National Basketball Association. He coached a semi-pro team in Switzerland in 1977-78 before returning to Oklahoma as an aide for 1978-79. He joined the New Mexico staff last summer. $650 o $20 noto$i5 o $20 Sunday, April 6th Long Lasting Blooming Plants Easter Lilies Mum Plants Azaleas Tulips Orange Trees A special selection of fresh cut flower arrangements for Easter gifting.
