Clifford O. Hagan
Athletics Director
A $5 million-plus natatorium, an expanded lounge and storage area in the Football Offices at Commonwealth Stadium, a new computerized program for the Ticket Office and new dressing facilities for women at Shively Sports Center are major improvements on tap as Cliff Hagan begins his 10th year as University of Kentucky athletics director.
The natatorium, approved last spring by the UK Athletics Board, will contain a 50-meter pool, a 50' x 75' diving well, deck area, shower and dressing rooms, lobby and control offices, equipment room, dressing area and all the other requirements for a first-class facility.
The Stadium lounge area, scheduled for completion in time for the current football season, adjoins the football offices and will be used as a reception area for parents and recruits, a pre-game and post-game gathering place, a site for certain other functions, and storage.
The antiquated ticket system has "moved into the20th Century" with installation of the Ticketron 2,001 System.
The expanded facilities for women at Shively Sports Center will be an addition located on the corner of the facility nearest the baseball field.
Another project in progress is removal of two areas of cracked external masonry walls on either side of the main entrance to M emorial Coliseum.
On the "games" side of the ledger, the 1983 Wildcat football team compiled a 6-4-1 record that represented the second-biggest turnaround in collegiate football history (from 0-10-1 in 1982) and participated in the Hall of Fame Bowl while the basketball Wildcats won the Southeastern Conference season and tournament championships and advanced to the "Final Four" as Mideast Regional champs.
The nationally ranked women's volleyball team was host to the 1984 NCAA championships while the Lady Kat basketball team won its holiday tournament (Dial Classic) for the fifth consecutive time.
T he University was host to the M ideast R egional last M arch and wil 1 be host to the men's Final Four next March and the women's Final Four in 1986.
Since replacing Harry Lancaster as athletics director in July 1975, H agan has supervised an ever-expanding program that now operates with a budget in the neighborhood of $7 million. Continued growth in practically all phases of UK athletics has been the hallmark of his reign, with fine attendance at football and basketball games  the men's program continues to lead the nation in attendance while the Lady Kats hold the national attendance for women with 10,622 attending a game in 1983  and a steady upgrading of facilities.
Hagan returned to theUniversity in 1972 as assistant toLancaster and was assigned the task of implementing the Blue & White Fund for 57,600-seat Commonwealth Stadium and later for the 23,000-seat Rupp Arena, home of the basketball Wildcats and site of the 1985 Final Four.

University of Kentucky Basketball Coach
Joe B. Hall begins his 13th season as head coach of the Kentucky Wildcats with one of the finest career records in college Dasketball.
While leading the Wildcats to a 29-5 record last year, Hall upped his 12-year UK record to 279-87, an average of nearly 23 wins a season. His victory percentage at UK is 76.2 percent.
UK's 1983-84 appearance in the Final Four was its third under Hall. He has taken his squad to the NCAA final eight on six occasions and to the final 16 on seven occasions.
Hall has won such honors as Kellogg's 1978 National Coach of the Year, four Southeastern Conference Coach of the Year awards (1973, '75, '78 and '83), and nomination for Kodak's 1975, '76, '78, and '84 Coach of the Year awards.
In 1978 when Kentucky won its fifth NCAA title, Hall was presented the Rupp Cup (presented to the SEC Coach of the Year by the Birmingham Tipoff Club) and Hall's most coveted personal award, the Dr. James Naismith "Peachbasket" award, which previously had been awarded to UCLA's John Wooden, Oklahoma State's Hank Iba, Kentucky's Adolph Rupp and the Boston Celtics' Red Auerbach.
The 1978 champions, which had a 30-2 record, became the sixth Wildcat team to win 30 or more games, joining such illustrious company
as the 1947 NIT runner-up (34-3), the 1948 Olympic Champions (36-3), the 1949 NCAA Champions (32-2), the 1951 NCAA Champions (32-2), and the 1975 NCAA Runner-up (32-2).
Player honors during Hall's UK reign include five All-Americans (Kevin Grevey, Jack Givens, Rick Robey, Kyle Macy and Sam Bowie) selected a total of 10 times, and eight All-Southeastern Conference honorees (Jim Andrews, Kevin Grevey, Jack Givens, Rick Robey, Kyle Macy, Sam Bowie, Derrick Hord and Melvin Turpin) selected a total of 17 times. In addition, Robey, Macy and Jim Master earned Gold Medals in the Pan-American Games, and Bowie earned a medal for being a member of the 1980 Olympic Basketball Team that did not participate in Moscow.
Entering the 1983-84 season, Hall's 18-year career coaching record stands at 355-143 (excluding a 17-2 record on a 1974 Australian tour, a 7-0 record on a 1978 Japan tour, an 8-0 record on a 1982 tour of the Orient, and eight pre-season exhibition wins against foreign and domestic teams). Broken down, it shows a 57-50 five-year mark at Regis, a 19-6 record at Central Missouri, and a 279-87 record at UK.
Hall began his tour as UK head coach in rather auspicious fashion, becoming in 1973 the first rookie coach in the SEC to be designated Coach of the Year by his fellow coaches and by Coach and Athlete Magazine.
Gathering such honors has been one of Hall's trademarks during a coaching career that began at Shepherdsville (Ky.) High School in 1956 and continued through Regis College and Central Missouri State College before he
returned to UK July 1, 1965, as an assistant to his former coach, Adolph Rupp.
During Hall's two years at Shepherdsville, the Rams won a Mid-Kentucky conference titel and he was named "Coach of the Year" in 1958. He then served one year as freshman coach and five years as head basketball coach at Regis College in Denver, Colo., where he was also athletic director and earned special recognition as coach of the champion independent team in the area.
His next move was to Central Missouri, where he coached the Mules (19-6) to their first MIAA Conference championship since 1951 and their first Christmas Tournament title in history. He was named MIAA "Coach of the Year" (1964-65).
A three-letter winner and team captain in both sports in high school at Cynthiana, Ky., he played freshman basketball and one year of varsity basketball in the "Fabulous Five" era at the University before transferring to the University of the South at Sewanee, Tenn., where he set a school single game scoring record and was team captain. Coach Lon Varnell, upon retirement, rated Hall as No. 1 of the three best players he ever coached.
After touring Europe with the Globetrotters in 1951, Hall returned to UK in 1955 to complete requirements for his B.A. and later (1964) received his M.A. at Colorado State University.
Returning to UK again in 1965 as an assistant coach and head recruiter, he was instrumental in adopting a running
conditioning program which obviously paid huge dividends as the Wildcats capitalized on speed and endurance to offset a lack of size and advance to the championship game of the NCAA Finals. Hall then successfully recruited six prep Ail-Americans, including all-time UK scoring leader Dan Issel, to form the nucleus of a varsity team that won three straight conference championships and was followed by a team that won three more consecutive SEC titles.
Hall became No. 1 varsity assistant and head freshman coach to Rupp after Harry C. Lancaster was named permanent athletic director Feb. 1, 1969. His record with the freshmen was 60-15, including an undefeated (22-0) season (1971-72) which resulted in the Kittens being crowned National Freshman Champions by the Basketball News.
International Flavor
Hall's basketball renown has attracted world-wide attention in international circles and has catapulted him into a much sought-after clinician and guest speaker. In 1983 he conducted clinics in Spain at the FIBA Junior World Championships. In 1982, during the Wildcats' tour of the Orient, he conducted clinics in Japan, the Republic of China and in Hong Kong.
In the summer of 1981, Hall conducted clinics in Ireland. In 1980, Hall conducted a clinic in Santiago, Chile, as a guest of the Chilean Basketball Federation. More than 400 coaches from throughout South America attended the clinic.
Hall considers one of his major coaching honors came when he was named guest lecturer for the World Basketball Coaches Congress in the Canary Islands, July 1977, before some 400 coaches from the international set.
In 1978, Hall coached the United States All-Stars, a group of collegians that included five of his own players, to the first World Invitational Tournament championship with wins over Cuba, Yugoslavia and Russia. Later that summer, he conducted a series of clinics in England, Belgium, Holland, Yugoslavia, Greece and Israel.
Hall was a busy man in off-season 1979 as well, coaching the victorious East team in the East-West College All-Star game at Salt Lake City, and the Southeastern All-Stars in the Shoney Classic at Charlotte, N.C, and conducting clinics in Warsaw, Copenhagen and London.
He was a member of the 1975 Olympic Basketball Committee, and in 1972 served under Hank Iba in the Olympic Trials at the Air Force Academy. He is currently on the ABAUSA player selection committee for all international competition.
He is married to the former Katharine Dennis of Harrison County, Ky. They have three children  Mrs. Mike (Kathy) Summers of College Station, Texas; Mrs. Rick (Judy) Derrickson and Steve of Lexington.
Leonard Hamilton was named the University of Kentucky's first associate basketball coach on Oct. 15, 1980.
Hamilton has been a member of the Wildcat coaching staff for ten years. He came to Kentucky after serving three years as an assistant coach at Austin Peay.
He has always been noted as an outstanding recruiter and as a defensive specialist. Most remarkable in his coaching career is the fact that in 12 of his 13 years as a coach on the collegiate level, the team he has been associated with has advanced to postseason play. Only in
his first season at Austin Peay has Hamilton not been involved in a postseason tournament
A native of Gastonia, N.C, Hamilton lettered three years in football and two years in basketball in high school. He captained his basketball team for two years at Gastonia Community College, and also served as team captain at Tennessee-Martin, where he graduated in 1970.
The 36-year-old Hamilton is married to the former Claudette Hale of McLemoresville, Tenn. They have a son, Lenny, 15, and a daughter, Allison, born in August.
Ji im Hatfield rejoined the Wildcat coaching staff on Aug. 24, 1983. Hatfield served as an assistant coach under Coach Joe B. Hall from 1972 to 1974. Upon leaving UK, Hatfield became head basketball coach at Southwestern Louisiana where his teams compiled a 47-35 record and won a Southland Conference championship. Hatfield rebuilt the USL program that had been under suspension. He was Southland Conference Coach-of-the-Year on two occasions.
Following his tenure at Southwest Louisiana, Hatfield was head basketball coach at Mississippi State. He led the Bulldogs to a 40-42 record in three seasons. In 1978-79, MSU finished 19-9 and appeared in the NIT. He has coached or recruited five NBA first round draft choices.
Hatfield served two years as athletic director and head basketball coach at Hardin-Simmons. The son of a minister, his family traveled extensively while he was growing up. Some of his early public schooling came in Lexington. He graduated from Knoxville (Tenn.) Fulton High School. He earned a bachelor's degree from East Tennessee State in 1965 and a master's degree from the University of Montevallo (Ala) in 1970.
Hatfield is married to the former Lana Murdock of Orlando, Fla. They have three children: Angie, 12; Jimmy, 10; and Lisa, 8.
