Dick Vermeil had his chance to go out on top. He took it. Now he has thrown it back. The desire to write his own final chapter lost out to a more powerful craving, one Bill Parcells recently likened to addiction--the yearning to be part of the action. It also lost to Vermeil's famous emotions. When two old friends from his days with UCLA and the Philadelphia Eagles came calling last week, the answer Vermeil gave Kansas City Chief executives Carl Peterson and Lynn Stiles was yes.

Hugh Alexander, a former scout for the Philadelphia Phillies now working for the Chicago Cubs, thinks the Phillies made a good deal when they traded shortstop Steve Jeltz to the Kansas City Royals for rookie pitcher Jose DeJesus. How good? Alexander: "I'd carry Steve Jeltz on my back all the way to Kansas City and drop him at home plate to make that deal." Note: Among position players with at least 1,000 at-bats, Jeltz has the lowest batting average in the majors at .213.

TV has to fit in those prime-time movies or shows after games."

Coach Marty Schottenheimer of the Cleveland Browns said an embarrassing incident during his collegiate football career has helped him develop his professional coaching philosophy. Schottenheimer, 44, was a linebacker at the University of Pittsburgh, but when a teammate became ill, he took on a new role. "Our long snapper was sick," Schottenheimer said. "The coach asked me to give it a try. I did. I snapped the ball at least 20 feet over the head of our punter, Jack Traficant."

At his emotional low point, Cliff Frazier never would have imagined that losing a leg might liberate him. Lift his spirits? Not a chance. So, for more than a year, the former UCLA nose guard put off the inevitable, telling doctors that he wasn't about to let his long battle with diabetes render him an amputee. "I thought I'd get well," he said, "but I never did. " It wasn't until a life-threatening infection developed in his bones that he finally relented: his lower right leg had to go. Last winter, it was amputated.

Ted Mullen, Foothill High School coach, says inside linebacker Tom Quinn is "like having a coach on the field." That hardly is a revelation. Quinn, a 6-foot 3-inch, 220-pound senior, spent his childhood watching football films instead of cartoons. His father, Mike, spent 13 seasons as head coach at Glendora and La Puente high schools before joining Lynn Stiles' staff at San Jose State where he served as the linebacker coach from 1977-79. "Tom was always a student of the game," Mike Quinn said.
