Curry accepts 5-year offer from UK

Sports Editor

When it comes to making deci-
sions concerning his life, Bill Curry
leamea something from UK Athlet—
ics Director C.M. Newton: “Be
quick, but don’t hurry.”

After mulling-over Newton’s of-
fer to become the new UK football
coach for almost a week, the Uni-
versity of Alabama coach decided
it was time for a change.

And when the UK Athletics
Board unanimously approved New-
ton‘s recommendation Monday
night, Curry officially became the
32nd coach of UK's football pro-
gram and the successor to retiring
coach Jerry Claibome.

“In regards to Coach Curry, I
know him to be a man of great in—
tegrity by whatever standard you
use," Newton said. “Whether it be
his peers current players, former
players. In his personal family life
or his professional life."

When Newton set out to find
Claiborne’s successor, he said he
was looking for “3 Jerry Claiborne
clone." And it appears as though he
found one.

“Bill Curry is recognized by
many to be at the very top of his
profession," Newton said. “He has
been credited for the dignity, class
and integrity with which he con-
ducts his football programs, both
on and off the field."

While many people in college
football look upon the UK football
program as a step down from Ala~
bama, Curry said he does not

“This is anything but a step
down. I come from an outstanding
program to an outstanding pro.
gram," said Curry, who had a 26-10
record at Alabama. Normally.
people evaluate motives and oppor~

tunities based on how they would
respond. What it means is that they
have a different set of standards
and values than I have.”

Curry, 47, said that although he
was not asked to leave Alabama by
anyone in the administration, he
said that it was in the Alabama
players‘ “best interest“ that he

“It is necessary in our business
— if you have a mission to teach
young people what it means to win
on and off the field — that every-
body in the organization feel the
same way and share the same prin-
ciples and work in the same direc-
tion toward the same end,” said
Curry, who was named Southeasr
ern Conference Coach of the Year
by The Associated Press and The
Nashville Banner.

Curry, who had turned Newton's-
offer down in early December, said
he began seriously considering the
UK position “when it became clear
that the very people (the playersi
that I have served in my mission
were having to deal with the degree


of controversy from within, (and it)
was not going to be resolved. then
my position (concerning UK)

Curry said his decision to come
to UK was made when “it became
clear to (my family) that this was
an opportunity for us to continue
what we believe in, which is to
teach young people how it feels to
be the best they can be in the class-
room, on the field and in their per-
sonal life."

Since being named Alabama's
coach in 1987 season, Curry has
been hounded by fans who were
upset that he was not a disciple of
legendary Paul “Bear" Bryant, And
the cries from Crimson Tide sup—
porters reached their peak follow-
ing Alabama’s third straight loss to
arch-rival Auburn .n the iinal game
of the regular season

But Curry said that criticisms
from 'Bama fans did not affect

“lf i personally had accepted

To say that 1989 was uneventful

little happened behind the Iron
Curtain last year. In the past year,
UK lost its president and two ath«
lettc coaches, and 115 men's hos-
kctholl program was hit with u
threcgycar probation by the

But not all news for UK last
year was bad. While the prospects
for increasedfunding from Fran/<—
fort were dimmed when the Ken-
tucky Supreme Court declared that
$300-$500 million had to be spent
to restructure the state's elemen-
tary and secondary education sys-
tem. private gifts to UK in fiscal
year 1989 hit an all-time high.

In addition. faculty research
continued to receive national hon-

the freshman class hit an all-time
high with an average American
College Test score of more than

Yet despite the positive things
that happened. following Presi-
dent David Roselle‘s resignation
there was a feeling of desperation
among many in the UK community
that the worst was yet to come in

David Roselle Resigns

Citing the NCAA probe into
1 the men’s basketball program
as preventing him from im-


ors, and the academic quality of

plementing his programs. UK
President David Roselle an‘
nounced Dec. 14 that he will be-
come president of the University
of Delaware.

Roselle, who was hired as UK‘s
ninth president in March 1987,
had been besieged by budgetary
woes, low faculty salaries. a cor-
rupt basketball program and con.
stant harassment from Kentucky
Gov. Wallace Wilkinson since
coming to UK.

Although Roselle downplayed
the poor relationship he had with
Wilkinson, he acknowledged that
it was difficult to make many
changes without sufficient funding
from the state.

A rally was held by more than
400 UK faculty, students, and staff
and state political leaders in late
November urging Roselle to stay
at UK. During the rally, UK Ath-
letics Director C.M. Newton, who
was hired by Roselle, pleaded with

the president not to leave: “Dr.
Roselle you are net only want-
ed btit needed."

Roselle said be we touched by
the outpouring of campus support,
but said the key to keeping him
from leaving 1.1K would be a
pledge from Frankfort that higher
education would be adequately
funded in the nut biennium.

“In order for progress I need
some help to do that. 1 need some
financial help," Roselle said. “Un-
less 1 am making progress, unless
I am being a good president 1
don‘t think the University is well
served by my being here.“

Roselle said his job also was
difficult because he had to spend
time lobbying state leaders when
he rather would have been tending
to administrative matters. “1 don‘t
do politics; 1 do education,“ he
said bluntly. “And if I’m going to
do education the politicians need
to figure out how to get us some
more money so that we can do it
in an appropriate manner."

The Joint legislative committee
on appropriations and revenue
promised Roselle that its members
would fight for higher education‘s
cause in the 1990 session, but Wil—
kinson remained silent on the is-
sue, saying that Roselle's decision
to leave UK was a personal one
that did not involve him.

Many fear that Roselle‘s deci-
sion to leave will cause faculty
members to begin looking else-

preSident to stay at UK

Traces of cannabinoid metabo-

if Knight was impaired at the time

Suspects in alleged rape
to appear in front ofjury

Staff Writer

Two 18-year-old men charged
with raping a female UK student in
a residence hall last semester will
appear before a Fayette County
grand jury Jan. 17 to determine if
they should be indicted on charges
of first-degree rape.

Jeffrey Alan Torniin and Chad
Eric Vannauker, both of Bowling
Green, were arrested Nov. 17 after
the 19-year-old woman filed a rape
report with the UK Police Depart-
ment. Police are still investigating
a report of a third assailant, accord—
ing to Ralph Derickson of UK.

The alleged rape occurred in Hag-
gin Hall either late on Nov. 1-1 or
early Nov. 15, according to UK.

es of first-degree rape during their

bond. Vannauker was released into
the custody of a third party Nov.

gonna be the best football player in
history at that position," Holleran
