FROM STAFF AND WIRE REPORTS
As far as blockbuster trades go, John Odum for 10 wooden baseball bats
won’t go down in history. But hey, in minor league baseball you take what
you can get, and sometimes practical deal-making takes precedent.
• Odum was traded from Canada’s Calgary Vipers to the Laredo Broncos
after he couldn't enter the country due to a minor infraction on his criminal record.
“I don’t really care," he said Friday, according to the Associated Press. “It’ll make
a better story if I make it to the big leagues." Well, that’s one way to look at it.
Adding another wrinkle to the story, Calgary' has a history of creative deal making.
A few years ago when the team was renovating its stadium, they attempted to trade
a pitcher for 1,500 stadium seats.
NOTED. After nine and a half hours of lock-
ing sweaty palms. San Francisco men Kevin
Whittaker and Cory Jens haw successfully broken
the Guinness World Record for longest continu-
ous handshake, the Associated Press reports.
And while this seems like a relatively easy
feat to accomplish, don't be fooled.
“I’m a little tired. My shoulder is tired. In
fact, it’s extremely painful," Whittaker said.

Haus out as
Coach will not
return in 2008
BY RACHEL ULLRICH
Mens lacrosse coach John Haus
will not return to the team for
the 2008-09 season, the athletic
department announced Tuesday.
“John and I have had several dis
cussions in the days since the sea
son ended, and the result of those
talks is that we agree a change is
in the best interest of reaching
the goals we all have for Carolina
lacrosse," Dick Baddour. director of
athletics, said in a statement.
“I have a great deal of respect for
him as we arrive at this decision.
... It is regrettable a change had to
happen. We are thankful to him for
all he has given to his alma mater."
Haus. a UNC alumnus, had
coached the Tar Heels for the pre
vious eight years, compiling an
overall record ofsß-52.
Haus also has acted as head
coach at Washington College and
at Johns Hopkins University, where
he recorded two NCAA semifinal
He played on UNC’s 1981 and
1982 undefeated championship
teams and was hired as head coach in
2000 by his former coach and then
athletic director Willie Scroggs.
‘I am disappointed to no longer
be coaching at Carolina," Haus said
in a statement.
“We have built a solid founda
tion for future success, but this is
the best way for the program to
take that next step, and I wish my
successor the best in doing that."
The Tar Heels recorded an ACC
regular season championship and
two NCAA quarterfinals appear
ances in the years of Haus’ reign,
but the team has not won a confer
ence matchup since April 2004.
After two losing seasons in 2005
and 2006 which saw a 4-10 record
for the Tar Heels Haus guided the
team through an impressive tum-
ehr Baihi Sar ftrrl
u We agree a change
is in the best inter
est of reach ing the
goals we all have for
DICK BADDOUR, athletics director
around through to the NCAA semi
finals, where its 10-6 season finally
closed against Duke.
“We want to be successful here,’
Haas told The Daily Tar Heel short
ly after his hiring in 2000. “We want
to win national championships, and
the kids who we recruit and die kids
who will play for us will be in full
understanding of that."
UNC has not played in an ACC
championship game since a loss to
Maryland in 1993.
The Washington Times’ sports
blog calls the UNC opening the best
opportunity available since 2001,
when Maryland’s coach retired.
“Carolina could be better than
(other recent job openings). There is
tradition. There are facilities. There
is Chapel Hill, which is alluring for
young and old alike," writes Patrick
Stevens, The Times’ lacrosse writer.
Inside Lacrosse reports that two
names already are being thrown
out for the position.
Ohio State coach Joe Breschi is
a UNC alumnus, and University of
Maryland. Baltimore County, coach
Don Zimmerman was an assistant
UMBC lost in the first round of
this year’s tournament, w’hile Ohio
State fell to Duke in the quarterfinals
after a surprise upset over Cornell.
North Carolina always has been
a notable coaching spot, a fact that
it seems Haus still appreciates.
“My family and I have really
enjoyed the eight years we have
spent in Chapel Hill," he said. “It
was a great honor to coach here."
