Lou or Ara would be fine
Students would like some flair in Dooley's replacement
By LEE PACE
Assistant Sports Editor
Should Lou Holtz or Ara Parseghian be interested in succeeding Bill Dooley
as Carolina's new head football coach, it seems UNC students would have few
In an informal poll conducted on campus Wednesday afternoon, several
persons mentioned they would like to see H oltz, the former N .C. State coach and
currently the head coach at Arkansas, replace Dooley, who has resigned to
accept a post at Virginia Tech.
And, somewhat surprisingly, the name of Parseghian, who led N otre Dame to
great achievements from 1964 to 1974, was mentioned several times.
"I'd like to see Parseghian brought in," said Bruce May. "I think he could get
the program rolling." ; .
Holtz, who took the Wolfpack to four straight bowls in four years at State, is
extremely popular among football fans for his quick sense of humor and joking
manner. And also because he wins. s ' ;
"I hate to mention Lou H oltz, but he's the kind of coach I'd like to see brought
in," said Mac Sullivan.
' Reaction to Dooley's move to the job of head football coach and athletic
director at VPI was quite varied, but most students said they would like to sec.
more flair in the offense and most felt the move was a good one for Dooley.
"1 think he thinks he's moving on to bigger and better things," said Mike
Sullivan said he couldn't blame Dooley for leaving."He got a good deal. I've
read he'll be getting about $70,000 a year. What does he get here? Around
$35,000. I'd go too. And, he's athletic director he'll get to run the show."
One student, Carl Low endick, said he believes that Dooley is not leaving solely
because he wants more money and more responsibility."! think he wasn't as well
liked around here as he would have liked to be. I think he wanted to find a place
where he would be more appreciated."
Eric Dellinger's remarks were typical of those who felt Dooley's offensive
tactics were bland. "My reaction was favorable. He's been here for some time.
The sort of offense he runs is extremely conservative for the talent we have. I
think we'll benefit with a more aggressive coach like Lou Holt."
Scott Hoehn. however, is more interested in the end than the means. "A lot of
people don't like him because he's so conservative. But he wins, and that's what
Donna Disanto and Beth Suitt were both dismayed by Dooley's resignation.
"I'm pretty depressed," Disanto said. "I think he's an excellent coach. It's too bad
we lost him."
"But 1 think we can find another coach," Suitt said. "It's basically the team's
talent, anyway. As long as we have a good team we'll find someone to pull it
Several persons weren't particularly concerned that Dooley is leaving, but they
worry about the effects of the transition to a new staff. Five of the remaining six
coaches on Dooley's staff have indicated they will join Dooley at VPI.
"I don't think people realize how hard the changeover will be," Ronald Hodge
said. "It's going to hurt to lose all of the organization," added Jule Rousseau.
Other folks around Chapel Hill barely know who Bill Dooley is, and some who
do could care less. And many staunch basketball fans aren't concerned about the
"If it were Coach (Dean) Smith leaving I'd be up in arms," said Terri Fleming,
"but I'm pretty apathetic about it. Coach Dooley wasn't that close to the

UNC coach Bill Lam
Carolina's wrestling team tonight
hosts East Carolina, a school it has
never beaten. Matchtime is 8 o'clock in
"It's going to be a very tough match,"
coach Bill Lam said. "They are going to
be even tougher than they were in the
tournament here in November."
Heading the list of ECU standouts are
134-pounder Paul Osmand and
heavyweight D. T. Joyner. Osmand did
not wrestle in the Carolina Invitational
but is a three-time Southern Conference
champ, an achievement that sent him to
the national tournament three years
running. Joyner is a top heavyweight.
He has excellent size along with great
strength and quickness. He will face
freshman Jody Truesdale tonight.
"There will be a lot of close individual
matches," Lam said. "In the head-to-head
competition in the tournament,
they won a close match at 1 18 while we
took close matches at 142 and 167."
Lam also warned that they would be
strong at 177 and 190 as well. They
placed their first and second stringers in
the finals at 177 and had one finalist at
190. One big plus for the Tar Heels will
be the return of 190-pounder Dean
Brior, who has been sidelined with an
injury. At the beginning of the year he
was listed as "out for the year."
However, a speedy recovery and a lot of
hard work will have him back on the
