Ford, who struggled to rebuild the team amid repeated setbacks, was fired Wednesday after his second straight losing season. M.L. Carr, the director of basketball operations, said he would like to have a successor in place by the June 28 draft. "I'm not going to put a time on," said Carr, a former teammate of Ford's with the Celtics. "I'm going to take a couple of days and step back from it." Ford, who met with Celtics officials Wednesday, planned to comment at a news conference Thursday. He was smiling as he left the team's office. His firing was announced about two hours before the Boston Bruins, eliminated from the playoffs Sunday night, said they had fired Brian Sutter after three years as coach. The Celtics were 35-47 this season, the only playoff team with a losing record. They gained hope when they split their first two playoff games in 29 1 7 1 000 000 000-0 000 000 001—1 No outs when winning run scored. DP—St. Louis 1. LOB—St. Louis 9, San Diego 6. 2B—JoReed (2).

But they were eliminated when they lost the next two. Those were the last games in Boston Garden for the Celtics, who move into the new FleetCenter next season. Ford is owed a reported $1.6 million under a two- year contract extension he received before this season. There are coaching openings with Miami, Golden State and the Ford two expansion teams — Toronto and Vancouver. "I'm sure there are other opportunities for him to move forward because Chris is not only a knowledgeable coach, but he will continue to work at it," Carr said. Ford, 46, had to withstand the loss of the Big Three — Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parish — in consecutive seasons. Bird retired after 1991-92, Ford's second season, and McHale retired after the next season. Parish, the last remaining member of what may have been the NBA's greatest frontline, departed as a free agent for Charlotte after last season. "I'm sure if you asked him, he'd rather have the Big Three when they were in their prime," Carr said. "Any coach would. But Chris was a guy who meets the challenges." Ford also lost his best player when Lewis died on July 27,1993 of a heart ailment after collapsing while shooting baskets. "" Poor draft picks and friction with management added to Ford's burden. He also faced occasional player unrest. Dominique Wilkins was outspoken when he was pulled from the starting lineup this season. Dee Brown is the only member of Ford's first Celtic team still with the squad. Ford has a 222-188 record in his first NBA coaching job with the Celtics. Although the Big Three were well past their primes, Boston was 56-26, 51-31 and 48-34 in his first three seasons. But it nosedived to 3250 in 1993-94, missing the playoffs for the first time in 15 years. "There comes a time in a coach's career where there is a point of diminishing returns," Carr said. "You get to a point where you feel it's in the best interest of both the coach and the team to move on, and I think this was the case here." Ford was third in coaching seniority with one team, trailing Utah's Jerry Sloan and Chicago's Phil Jackson. Carr said Ford's assistants — Don Casey and Dennis Johnson — would be given a chance to keep their jobs until a new coach decides on his staff. ! , Penske pulling out all stops to qualify But rain hampers effort at Indy By The Associated Press INDIANAPOLIS — Team Penske has unleashed all of its considerable resources in fighting a desperate situation. Despite losing valuable track time again Wednesday because of the third straight day of rain, Roger Penske's team, the winningest in Indy-car history, continued a two-continent attack on the problem of finding enough speed to get Al Unser Jr. and Emerson Fittipaldi qualified for the May 28 Indianapolis 500. Since practice began on May 6 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, neither driver has been able to generate enough speed in their 1995 Penske-Mercedes, new cars that have shown potential by giving both drivers victories earlier this season. "We're doing about everything that can be done," Dan Luginbuhl, vice president of communications for the Penske Corp. and a longtime Penske lieutenant, said. "We've even got our guys at Penske Cars (in Poole, England) in the wind tunnel with the 40 percent scale model trying to find some answers. "Over here, we've run the equivalent of seven 500-mile races in terms of practice laps. We're leading the league in mileage," he cracked with Cincinnati Rijo W.2-2 PSmith Carrasco S,1 Montreal Fassero L.4-1 Cornelius Eversgerd Scott H RER BB SO 2-3 1-3 1 HBP—by Cornelius (BRHunler).

Frederick scored five times to give him a major-league record of eight runs in two games. a wry smile. "I think we're dealing with some aerodynamic phenomenon here. We just have not been able to make the right move to solve the handling dilemma in the corners, but the guys feel it's real close." Earlier this week, the team had the 1994 Penske, in which Unser won the pole and the race a year ago, shipped in from California just to see if something could be learned from running it for a few laps. After Fittipaldi ran the car awhile on Monday, it was rolled back onto the team transporter. On Tuesday, Penske Penske brought out a 1994 Reynard he bought from Pagan Racing to see if it could tell the team anything. Unser drove it for 70 laps and then parked it. Fittipaldi drove his own 1995 car, saying, "The track was very slow, but I think we've closed the gap." On Wednesday, the team announced it has borrowed a 1995 Lola chassis from the Rahal-Hogan team to do some further evaluation. Plans call for Fittipaldi to practice with that car as soon as the weather allows. A year ago, Bobby Rahal was in a situation similar to Penske's. Rahal was on the verge of not making the race with a Lola and an underpow- ered Honda engine. Penske sold him a year-old Penske chassis with an II- mor engine and Rahal wound up finishing third in the race. "After our past experience at in : dianapolis, we understand the challenge they are facing going into the final weekend of qualifying," said Rahal, whose car and that of teammate Raul Boesel are already qualified. "We are pleased to provide Penske Racing with one of our backW up Lolas." Added co-owner Carl Hogan: "We don't feel like this will handicap our team or our chances to win the race at all. It's an opportunity for us to return a favor. Roger said last year it was important for the sport to have Bobby Rahal in the race. We feel the same about Al Jr. and Emerson." While Fittipaldi drives the Lola, and the team tries to find some answers to the handling problems in the information it provides, Unser will continue to work with his '95 car. "We're not just concerned with getting in the race," Luginbuhl said. "We need a package that will be competitive. We don't want to run-in a dead heat for 26th. But that's "a pretty big order." Wednesday was a complete washout on the track. A late-afternoon attempt to dry the 2'/2-mile oval ended with another light rain at 5:40 p.m. CDT, one hour and 20 minutes before the scheduled close. ' '• BRIEFLY K-State's Turner sets school javelin record AMES, Iowa — Kansas State freshman T.J. Turner set a school record in a javelin on Monday to win the title at the Big Eight Men's Outdoor. Turner's heave of 232-7 also surpassed the NCAA provisional qualifying standard and qualified him for the upcoming NCAA Outdoor in Knoxville, Tenn., on May 31-June 3. Turner, a former prep standout at Jewell and Concordia High School, broke the K-State record of 230-9 set in 1991 by Jon Rorabaugh. "T.J. had a great performance," K-State coach Cliff Revelto said. "As a freshman, he responded well to the pressure of a big meet and rose to the occasion." Turner's victory marked the third straight year and sixth time in eight years that a K-Stater has won the men's javelin title. Turner's previous best toss was 222-7 at the Southwest Texas Invitational on March 25 in San Marcos, Texas. KU golf team vies for spot in NCAA MONTGOMERY, Texas — The Kansas golf team will be vying for a spot in the NCAA Championships when the NCAA Central Regional Tournament begins today at the Bentwater Country Club. The Jayhawks, who finished second to No. 1-ranked Oklahoma State in last month's Big Eight Championship in Hutchinson, need a Top 10 finish to qualify for the NCAA tourney next month in Columbus, Ohio. Twenty-one teams, including six from the Big Eight, are in the tournament, which is a three-day, 54-hole affair. Also competing will be Kansas State's Scott Hovis, a junior from Jefferson City, Mo. Rain postpones 3-2-1A baseball regional Heavy rains forced the postponement of the Class 3-2-1A baseball regional scheduled Wednesday at Dean Evans Stadium, and pushed back the rescheduled games for the 5A baseball regional.
