Andersen, 60, retired Friday after his only losing season at BYU. Athletic Director Glenn Tuckett said the decision to hire Reid "was not a spur-of-the moment thing.

Ladell Andersen, who coached Brigham Young University to a 114-71 record in six seasons as basketball coach, resigned Friday. BYU was 14-15 in 1988-89, Andersen's first losing season. "I felt this was the best thing I could do for myself, the university and everyone concerned," said Andersen, 60. "There was never any pressure put on me by anyone at Brigham Young or the administration." Schools officials were surprised by Andersen's move.

Brigham Young basketball coach Ladell Anderson, having failed to survive the Western Athletic Conference playoffs and finishing with a 14-15 season, stepped down today. BYU Athletic Director Glen Tuckett said Anderson's unexpected departure, ending a six-year stint at the Mormon Church-owned school, should be viewed as a retirement rather than a resignation. "This is a question of semantics," he said at a late-morning news conference.

Jim Harrick, who confirmed to the Salt Lake Tribune that he has talked informally with Brigham Young University about coaching the Cougar basketball team, will actively seek a job, even if the financial terms of his dismissal from UCLA remain unresolved, Harrick's attorney said. "He wants to work right now," said Robert Tanenbaum, Harrick's attorney. "This is a person who has worked all this life, always had a job to go to. Then, all of a sudden, the rug was pulled out from under him."

Roy Fisher scored 23 points as the Bears defeated Brigham Young, 85-63, before a capacity crowd Saturday night at Harmon Gym. The loss was BYU's most lopsided since a 30-point defeat by Villanova during the 1984-85 season. The team that usually wins with wise, steady play tripped over its game plan. Despite modest talent, BYU came to Berkeley with a 9-1 record, built on its typically efficient offense. Against Cal, the efficiency took a break.
