"As a college player, I accepted cash from my coach. As a college coach, I gave cash to players." So begins the first sentence of Chapter One in "Confessions of a Coach," Norm Sloan's revealing book on his life in college basketball.

A grudge against Florida basketball Coach Norm Sloan prompted a former player to lie to federal investigators about cash payments and drug use among players, a newspaper reported Thursday. "I just wanted to get Sloan fired," Kenny McClary told the grand jury in Tallahassee, according to testimony obtained by the Palm Beach Post. McClary testified that he lied because he had a "very high grudge against Norm Sloan," after playing little as a senior. His eligibility expired in 1988.

Coach Norm Sloan wasn't the only one to chide Florida freshman center Dwayne Schintzius for mouthing off before the game against Syracuse in the NCAA East Regional. Said a citizen of Tampa after the Gators lost to the Orangemen: "It's too bad because Norm Sloan is a good coach, but that kid should not have popped off like that. You don't go saying those kinds of things unless you have Hulk Hogan as a power forward." The speaker was George Steinbrenner.
