George Perles is out as coach at Michigan State but may remain as athletic director, university President John DiBiaggio said Thursday. Perles apparently wasn't given a choice of positions, and the only decision he faces is whether to hold onto the athletic director's job alone, effective Jan. 1. The appointment would be for 3 1/2 years. Michigan State is 2-8. Perles has been the head coach since 1983 and has a career record of 56-44-4.

"My heart is pumping and my corpuscles are jumping and it really is a wonderful time," Wacker said. Minnesota gave Wacker a five-year, $1.25-million contract. At Minnesota, Wacker faces a challenge similar to the one he faced at TCU--rebuilding a program.

Lou Holtz will not coach Minnesota's football team in the Independence Bowl on Dec. 21 so that he can devote full time to his new job as Notre Dame's coach. Minnesota Athletic Director Paul Giel said Tuesday that Holtz will be relieved of his duties immediately and that the Gophers' assistant coaches will prepare the team for the game with Clemson at Shreveport, La. Holtz had three years left on a five-year contract when he decided to leave for Notre Dame, succeeding Gerry Faust, who resigned.

Foggie, who played in 1984 and 1985 under Coach Lou Holtz, now head coach at Notre Dame, and in 1986 and 1987 under Holtz's successor, John Gutekunst, testified for the prosecution that he met Darville in the fall of 1984.

John Gutekunst came away from his first college head coaching assignment with a victory Saturday night, and with Rickey Foggie around for two more years, his record could include many more wins. Gutekunst took over Minnesota's football team after Lou Holtz left for Notre Dame, and the new coach's first night on the job turned out to be an exciting one.
