Capistrano Valley Coach Brian Mulligan couldn't bring himself to single out a most valuable player at his team's postseason banquet, so he gave each of his players a watch. Mulligan considered his players interchangeable parts during the Cougars' run to their first Southern Section title-game appearance since 1992. Most were in the 6-foot to 6-4 range and played every position on the floor. And every game, a different player led the charge. One night it was Matt Sweany. Then Jeff Gloger.

Film production veteran Stacey Snider and business affairs executive Brian C. Mulligan were named co-chairs of Universal Pictures on Thursday, making official what had been a de facto working arrangement at the studio. Both executives will report to Ron Meyer, president of Seagram Co.'s Universal Studios Inc. They replace Casey Silver, who was fired last November as head of the studio after a long dry spell that included such expensive flops as "Meet Joe Black" and "Babe: Pig in the City."

Call it natural law or serendipity, but Center Stage has become the San Fernando Valley's--perhaps all of Los Angeles'--home for wacky musicals. On weekends at Center Stage, tucked deep in the corner of an unsightly Woodland Hills mini-mall, is the deliciously loopy "Flood Tide at Rio Magdalena." Now, during the week, is the almost-as-loopy "Royal Flush," by Frank Palmieri and Brian Mulligan, who also directs. If you're not smiling at the end of these two shows, check your vital signs.

Brian Mulligan was named basketball coach at Capistrano Valley High, Athletic Director Tom White said Friday. Mulligan was interim coach for Capistrano Valley last season, leading the Cougars to a second-place finish in the South Coast League and to the Southern Section Division I-A quarterfinals. "I was looking forward to [becoming head coach]," Mulligan said. "It's a job that I have always kind of wanted, so it is a good deal for me."

During final exam week at Capistrano Valley High School, world history teacher Brian Mulligan was reviewing ancient Greece with a class of sophomores. The lesson centered on the city states of Athens and Sparta and the differences in their culture, philosophy and government. Mulligan was discussing the lifestyle of Spartans and made this observation: "The Spartans had a win-at-all-cost philosophy toward life similar to that of Raiders owner Al Davis."

During the rapture of a heady victory or in the pain of a devastating loss, during a quiet lunch on campus or at a media-day podium, Bill Mulligan nearly always managed the last word. For 11 seasons at UC Irvine, the cantankerous basketball coach has been a sort of Archie Bunker with a whistle, weaving a charming web of controversy and always speaking his mind with brazen frankness.
