Weeb Takes Over 6 Sick Cow' Titans By JACK HAND Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) - "I've seen sicker cows than this get. well," said Weeb Ewbank of his new charges, the New York Jets—nee Titans—of the American Football League. Ewbank, who turned a "sick cow" into a championship team at Baltimore and then was fired after a nine-year stay, became the coach and general manager of the re-named Jets Monday. The announcement was a formality for the story had leaked into the papers a day earlier. The new owners of the Jets,, ft five-man group headed by Son-' ny Weblin, president of Music Corporation of America and a director of Monmouth Race Track, are attempting to wipe out the last reminder of the sad sack Titans. They bought the bankrupt club from Harry Wismer last month for $1 million. The signing of Ewbank to a three-year contract for a reported $100,000 was their first, big move. Ewbank, a chunky man of 55 years with an enthusiastic outlook on life, knows he faces many problems. He is aware that the old owners did not sign a single draft choice last fall. He also knows the club had a 5-9 record and finished last in its division. The Colts fired Ewbank in January and replaced him with Don Shula. Weeb had two years to go on a contract reported to call for $30,000 per. He and owner Carroll Rosenbloom of the Colts agree they made an "amicable solution to their problems." Ewbank said George Sauer, general manager of the Titans last year, was out looking for talent. He said he would interview candidates for assistant coaching jobs and hoped to line up a staff soon. Bulldog Turner, head coach in 1962, will be paid off. He has one year remaining on his contract. "I hope this will be my last move," said Ewbank. "I hope to start a new era for the AFL here."
