Dolphins Pace Pro Bowl Squad AMES Iowa (AP) — Two Iowa State assistant coaches and six distinguished outsiders appear to be the early frontrun- ners to succeed departing Johnny Majors as the Cyclones' football coach. Ray Greene, 34, receivers coach, and King Block, 43, offensive backfield coach, said Tuesday they would ask for interviews before a six-man committee which will help select Majors' successor. "We would like to find a new coach as soon as possible," said Iowa State Athletic Director Lou McCullough. "If it was up to me I would like to have a new coach in 10 minutes. We're losing prime recruitingtime." McCullough, a former assistant to Woody Hayes at Ohio State, said he is definitely not a candidate.

North Central Conference invader North Dakota State was the victim 96-67 and the Cyclones also boosted their home mark to 5-0 for the season. ''We were not very sharp during the early stages," said John afterwards. "But I rather expected a letdown. This is normal when you are coming off a big victory over an intrastate rival." Iowa State dumped previously unbeaten Drake 88-84 here Saturday night and John had cautioned that a letdown might hit his team. "Our starting five just couldn't get going," continued John, "but they all played much better in the second half." Four reserves and steady Clint Harris provided the breakaway power in the final nine minutes of the first half. John pulled all but Harris with 9:23 left in the first half and substituted four reserves includin guards Eric Heft and Mike Capobianco and center Craig DeLoss. The Cyclones led only 24-23 at that point, but then zoomed to a commanding 47-35 halftime lead. Harris, who finished with a game high 27 points and eight rebounds, contributed 19 points in the inital half. Guard Bill Benson finished with 18 — one nine of 13 from the floor, Martinez Denmon had 12, Heft 11 and Wes Harris 10. Iowa State hit a hot 44 of 82 from the floor — 54 per cent, and also held a 34-32 rebounding edge although John felt the statistics "weren't exactly right." John got a chance toplay all members of the squad.

McCullough, who has been athletic director since 1969, said no interviews have yet been given but some re expected later this week. Reportedly high on thelist of candidates are Don Coryell, San Diego State; Frank Kush, Arizona State; Earl Bruce, Tampa; Don James, Kent, Ohio, State; Lou Holtz, North Carolina State; and Bill Mallory, Miami, Ohio. "I don't know where you got that list, but you have a pretty good one," McCullough told The Associated Press. "All are fine coaches and we would be No Comment AMES, Iowa (AP)— Iowa State University President W. Robert Parks issued a terse statement Tuesday in reaction to news that head football coach Johnny Majors will leave BU to become head coach at the University of- Pittsburgh. "It would serve no good purpose to comment on Mr. Majors," said Parks. "As everyone close to Iowa State's athletic program realizes, the progress in our intercollegiate athletics over the last few years is due to the university's overall commitment to excellence and to the individual efforts of a great many people. We therefore confidently expect the progress in our football program to con- tunue under the leadership of a new head football coach." interested in talking to them." McCullough would not admit that any of the coaches were on the list, Thit added that the school also was interested in talking to "some top assistants at major schools." He also.cautioned that the selection process - might be slow since some of the candidates the school is interested in have teams in bowl games. James' Kent State team faces Bruce's Tampa club in the Tangerine Bowl Dec. 29 in Orlando, Fla., while Holtz' North Carolina State club meets West Virginia the same day in the Peach Bowl at Atlanta, Ga. "I know we will come up with a fine coach," added McCullough. Greene, Block and freshman coach Keith Kephart are the only Majors' assistants who have said they would like to stay at Iowa State. It is believed that six of the present assistants will be offered positions with Majors at Pittsburgh. They are Jackie Sherrill, assistant head coach and defensive coordinator; Joe Avezzano, offensive line; Bobby Roper, defensive backs; Jim Dyar, defensive line; George Haffner, offensive coordinator; and George Boutselis, defensive ends. Greene, a graduate of Akron, Ohio, University, has been on the staff four years and previously served as an assistant at Miami, Ohio, and Akron. "I don't know what chance I have, but I feel the man who takes this job will be stepping into a fine opportunity," said Greene. "The program here still can go higher." Greene, who said Majors has not talked to him about going to Pittsburgh and not consulted with him since making the announcement, said he might even remain as an assistant. "I might stay on for another year, for several reasons," he offered. "One of the biggest reasons is that I feel that I owe it to the kids I recruited." Greene recruited most of the Cyclones' black players. If appointed Majors' replacement, Greene would become the first black coach to hold a head football coaching job at a major university. Block, who came to Iowa State five years ago with Majors, is a graduate of Idaho and a former assistant at Idaho, Arkansas State, Nebraska and Washington State. He was also head coach at Arkansas State for three years. Block noted that there "has been a trend recently" to promote assistants to the head job when coaches go elsewhere and that this keeps "continuity in the program." "The program here is in pretty good shape but it still can climb," added Block. "I want the job." "I think we need to move ahead with all due speed," said Hussey. "The sooner we get a coach the sooner we get back to recruiting." USED TRACTORS Waiver of Finance Until March 1 7 1973 IH-1206D w/Cab & Heater IH- 806D w/VVide Frt. IH- 706D IH-706 Gas - w/3 Pt.
