BIXLER NAMED
COLGATE COACH
0
Resigns Ohio Job To Ac
cept Position As Red
Raider Mentor
f Hamilton. N. Y., 'Feb 6(U.H)Paul
O Bixler succeeded another friend
and former boss today when he
left Ohio State University to re
turn to Colgate as head football
coach.
this time he succeded veteran
Andy Kerr, retired at the age of
68 after 40 years of coaching, in
cluding 18 seasons at Colgate. A
year ago, Bixler replaced Carroll
Widdoes as head coach at Ohio
State in an amaxing job switch in
which an assistant coach replaced
the boss and the boss stepped doWp
to willing assistant.
Neither salary terms nor length
of Bixler’s contract at Colgate
were revealed but it was believed
he would be on the same year to
year basis as was Kerr. Bixler
now 40, also will be an associate
professor Of physical education.
At Columbus, 0., where Bixler
announced his resignation at Ohio
State, he admitted his decision to
leave was “a tough one” but that
it was made entirely on the basis
of his early relationship with Col
gate where he served as Kerr’s
football assistant and head basket
ball coach in 1939 and 1940. He
moved to Ohio State in 1940 when
Paul Brown was named head coach
of the Buckeyes.
Athletic Director William A.
Reid, who announced Bixler’s ap
pointment, said the former Ohio
State coach will select his own
three assistants but the nomi
nations will be subject to the
approval of the University presi
ent and athletic council Executive
committee.
Although he had been at Colgate
.only two years, Bixler built up a
! tremendous following that was
anxious to have him back and
Kerr, himself, rated him as one
of the best assistants and scouts
in Colgate history.
Obviously, there was a strong tie
between Kerr and his former as
sistant for Kerr witnessed last
Fall’s Ohio State-Michigan game in
which Bixler’s team absorbed a 58
to 6 pasting in a traditional game
that usually is a "must w'in” for
Ohio State coaches. '
When he announced his resign
ation at Columbus, however, both
retiring athletic Director I. W. St.
John of Ohio State and his suc
cessor, Richard Larkins, said
Bixler had the complete support of
the administration at Ohio State.

HANK GREENBERG
MAY SIGN TODAY
Former Tiger Star To Meet
With Pittsburgh
Executives
PITTSBURGH Feb. 6 (JP) Hank
Greenberg may sign a contract
with the Pittsburgh Pirates here
this weekend but if he does it’s a
pretty safe bet that all the details
will have been worked out before
the big slugger reaches the Steel
City.
Officials of the club said today
they hadn’t received word from
Hank, who lives in New York,
whether he’ll definitely be here.
But they, said Frank McKinney,
president of the Pirates, will stop
ofl in New York enroute from
I Miami Beach, Fla., and it was as
sumed he would confer there with
the Bubs' newest star.
John W. Galbreath, vice-presi
dent of the club, is understood to
be with McKinney. Galbreath sat
in last weekend in the New York
conference between Greenberg and
general manager Roy Harney. At
that time, it >vas left up to Mc
Kinney to contact the major lea
gue’s homerun leader.'
Both McKnney and Galbreath
are due here for the baseball
writers’ show and dinner. Green
berg also has been invited by the
writers but no word has been re*
ceived from him. The two Pirate
officials, together with Tom John
son, treasurer, also were scheduled
for a meeting tomorrow but that
has been postponed until Saturday.
There has been no announcement
