In the wild mountains of the Isle of Skye, the chief of Clan MacLeod is seeking his family's salvation. He's doing it in the time-honored way of hard-pressed British aristocrats--by selling a family heirloom. In this case, the Black Cuillin mountains. "We have been in this part of the world since the beginning of recorded time," said John MacLeod, 66, standing on the battlements of the castle owned by his family for 800 years. "It is dreadful, but there is nothing else I can do."

Mark Jackson, the 1988 NBA rookie of the year, was suspended for four days by the New York Knicks Friday for what a team spokesman called "conduct detrimental to the team." The 6-foot-3 point guard has been publicly critical of Coach John MacLeod for relegating him to backup status behind Maurice Cheeks. Jackson will miss two games. According to broadcast reports, Jackson had an altercation with MacLeod before practice Friday. "The word is insubordination," General Manager Al Bianchi said.

Guard Mark Jackson withdrew his grievance against the New York Knicks, but he still will be fined because of a shouting match with Coach John MacLeod, the team said. Jackson was suspended for four days on Feb. 23 when he argued with MacLeod and then-president Al Bianchi after a practice. Jackson was upset with his demotion to backup role behind guard Maurice Cheeks.

Coach John MacLeod of the Dallas Mavericks announced that he has taken himself out of the running for the vacant job with the New York Knicks. MacLeod had been the front-runner to replace Rick Pitino, who left the Knicks to become coach at the University of Kentucky. The Knicks declined to name other candidates for the job, although Coach Mike Fratello of the Atlanta Hawks, assistant coach Phil Jackson of the Chicago Bulls and assistant coach Brendan Malone of the Detroit Pistons have been mentioned.

John MacLeod will be out as New York Knick coach when the NBA team plays its last playoff game, New York Newsday reported Thursday. The newspaper, quoting two unnamed Knick sources, said MacLeod will not be offered a new contract. MacLeod took over as coach on Dec. 3, replacing Stu Jackson, who was fired. The Knicks have a 31-34 record with MacLeod as coach, and are 38-42 overall. Dave Checketts, the team's president, denied he had decided to fire MacLeod.

A technical foul on Notre Dame Coach John MacLeod with 2.2 seconds to play sent DePaul's Stephen Howard to the line Saturday night at Rosemont, Ill. Howard made the second of two free throws to give No. 15 DePaul a 66-65 victory. MacLeod protested vehemently and drew the technical when the Irish's Brooks Boyer drove to the basket and there was no foul called after a collision. MacLeod refused to comment on the officiating. The loss dealt Notre Dame's NCAA tournament hopes a serious blow.

One can only wonder what goes through Notre Dame Coach John MacLeod's mind as he swims lap after lap, 1,000 long yards in all, during his daily in-season dips. He calls them his "stress pills," and by the look of the Irish's 1-5 record, MacLeod might want to increase the dosage. There in the solitude of the school's indoor pool, MacLeod splashes methodically through the water, a new thought about his struggling Notre Dame team born with each stroke. As his arms churn, so must his stomach.

A lawsuit by former Dallas Maverick Coach John MacLeod that claims the team promised him a percentage of the profits from the past two seasons is "without merit," team officials said. The breach-of-contract suit was filed in state district court in Dallas this week. Doug Adkins, the team's vice president-counsel, said the Mavericks will file a reply before Aug. 20.

Unconventional wisdom for a Monday morning . . . Albert Belle: Rhymes with brain cell, one of thousands the Cleveland left fielder must be missing. Once upon a time, players confined their tantrums to the field, throwing baseballs at one another. Now, they're flinging them into the stands, at fans, turning the stadium bleachers into a Coney Island attraction.

The office is virtually empty. No furniture except a temporary desk. Nothing on the walls except old nails. A gaudy green carpet, which John MacLeod, dressed tastefully in a white dress shirt and Cannes Film Festival tie, says he intends to pull up when he gets a free minute. The office is his now. Digger Phelps has vacated. Coach of Notre Dame basketball for 20 years, Phelps took an early retirement, possibly voluntary, more likely not.

As expected, John MacLeod resigned Thursday as coach of the New York Knicks to replace Digger Phelps, who retired two weeks ago, as basketball coach at Notre Dame. Newsday reported that the Knicks are preparing to make an all-out effort to lure former Laker coach Pat Riley back into coaching, quoting a team source that said the job, basically, was Riley's to turn down.

John MacLeod will resign as coach of the New York Knicks today, and several sources said he will be the next basketball coach at Notre Dame. A source close to the NBA team told the Associated Press Wednesday night that MacLeod "is leaving on his own" and is not being fired. WISH-TV in Indianapolis reported Wednesday night that MacLeod would resign from the Knicks today and accept the Notre Dame job later this week. The station attributed the report to MacLeod's attorney in Phoenix.
