A spokesman at the Navy Supply School said Friday that Ens. Napoleon McCallum had not been granted any of his first three choices for a duty station and is being assigned to San Diego, which will probably end his career with the Raiders, for the present.
"That's my understanding," said Lt. Jim Stoops from Athens, Ga., where McCallum has been attending the school. "He has been assigned to the staff of Naval Surface Forces Command, Pacific."
Stoops said that McCallum will eventually go to sea. "Usually it's within two or three months," he said.
McCallum could not be reached.
A year ago, McCallum, an Annapolis graduate, was able to pursue a dual career when his assignment to supply school was switched at the last minute to a ship in drydock at Long Beach. He wound up playing in 15 games, starting three when Marcus Allen was hurt.
James Webb, who replaced John Lehman as Secretary of the Navy, has since announced, however, that no "special accommodation" would be made for McCallum this season. A spokesman for Webb said that under the new guidelines, last year's assignment constituted a special accommodation.
