Abraham Enters Not-Guilty Plea

November 24, 1998

Michael Abraham, former women's basketball coach at Cal State Northridge, entered a plea of not guilty to federal charges of conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine in federal court in Omaha, Neb., on Monday. A trial date of March 1, 1999, was set.

Abraham was arrested Oct. 27 in the Northridge gymnasium and subsequently resigned as coach. Federal authorities did not seek to detain Abraham and he returned to Portland, Ore., where he is staying with his family.

ADMINISTRATION

Impending hire: Stan Jankovich, the athletic director at Miami from 1983-90, has been offered the position of interim athletic director at Cal State Northridge, sources said.
