NEW YORK (AP) — Note to irate alumni: before you fire the coach because your team didn't win, take a look at what happened to the other guys. • Three major colleges already are looking for new coaches with the 1954 season not yet over, and the usual rumors of changes at other losing institutions are floating around. At Pittsburgh, Red Dawson, who had to give up coaching In mid- scason because of his health, alter losing three games, turned In his resignation later to enter private business.

Laverne (Kip) Taylor resigned at Oregon State after a 1-8 season because of- "apparent Increasing pressure In the football program.' And Bill Young quit as head coach and athletic director at Furman (6-6). S Dozen Last Year At this rave, the turnover may be as great as It was last season, when about three dozen small and large colleges came up with new coaches. Presumably the successors to the losing conches are expected to do better, but It doesn't often happen. Records for 16 major colleges that changes coaches before the past season show that only four of them won more games than they lost during the 195-1 season. Only five of the new coaches did better than their predecessors while 11 had worse records. Murray Warmath produced n ivlnner at Minnesota, nnishliiK with seven victories and two defeats, where Inst year We* Kesler could only break even. Young Terry Brennan's first Noire Dame tenni has won eight games and lost one—lo Purdue — with one more to go.

Didn't Match Leahy But Brennnn didn't match Prank Leahy's nine victories and one tie In 1953. Collier was behind Benr Bryant's 7-2-1 at Kentucky and Royal didn't equal Warmath's 5-2-3 record for Mississippi State. Besides Wnrmalh. the coaches who Improved on the 1B53 records tor their schools were Vlnce rii Francesca at Iowa Slate.n Enrle Edwards at North Carolina State, Andy Pilney at Tulane and Skip Slnliley at Idnho. In tile first three cases the Improvement was hardly noticeable. On the other hnnd, Steve Sebo had to sent out Pennsylvania's lli-st all-losing season and Chuck Mather had the same unpleasant .situation at Kansas.
