M. Williams! that the Wildcat mentor scon will end his coaching career at Lexington! "To close friends of the Bear," Wll-Fordyce, Ark " liams wrote today, "that was the climax in a long chain of negotiations that started between Minnesota and Bryant shortly after (Bernie) Bierman's resignation." Williams cited as "known" facts: That Oklahoma Coach Bud Wilkinson was Minnesota's first choice but turned it down because he could not amicably sever what Is termed "'the finest football contract in the nation" with the'Sooners. That Wilkinson, a Minnesota alumnus, has supported and recommended Bryant for the job and has done "a terrific Minnesota sell- Ing Job to Bear." Bud and Bear Travel That Bryanl and Wilkinson, whose teams clash In the Sugar Bowl, Jan. 1 traveled together in the southwest last week. Making speeches and attending the LSU- Texas football game. And that. "Bryant has been unhappy at Kentucky.' for various reasons, mostly internal, for the last couple of years." "But he j 'made, ,up" h.U mind del- Initely to leave" only'iftef 'he was refused permission to use the University's new gymnasium to prac- tice.his football team the week before the Tennessee game, "Williams wrote. "The excuse was that the gym had been reserved for freshmen basketball practice." Williams said Kentucky officials have been putting pressure on Bryant to .fulfill his contract, which ias five years to run, and at one :lme prohibited him from visiting -he campuses of colleges interested n his services. Announcement in January Dr. H. L. Donovan. University of Kentucky president, said in Lexington yesterday he did not know Bryant had gone to Minneapolis. Bryant said at, a " Minneapolis >ress conference he would not under any circumstances break his present contract. Williams concluded: "A definite announcement of his acceptance'of the Minnesota job will probably noi come until the NCAA meeting In Dallas In January."
