After coaching football in the United States for 32 years, Sam Rutigliano has decided it's time to seek new opportunities and experiences. Among the jobs he might consider, Rutigliano said, are a television commentator in the United States or work in Italy promoting the five-year-old Italian American Football Assn. He won't return to coaching, he said, either in Italy or America. "I am only interested in long-term commitments, for taking decisions and planning ahead," he said.

Ten years ago, the Rev. Jerry Falwell hired Sam Rutigliano and predicted that the former Cleveland Browns coach would deliver Liberty to the same football promised land as Notre Dame. Ten years later, with the Baptist college still in Division I-AA, Rutigliano roars with laughter at that prediction. "I'll be in a nursing home when they play Notre Dame," he said. "Though last year we did that. Our volleyball team played Notre Dame. So Jerry's not a false prophet."

In all the lore of Notre Dame, nobody remembers a flood sweeping through the football team's practice facility and carrying all the equipment downstream, thus ending the season three games early. At Brigham Young they do not tell stories of the players sleeping in tents. Nor can the Oral Roberts basketball program wax nostalgic about a training table that boasted of powdered eggs and tuna fish sandwiches, apparently in its entirety.

Boomer Esiason was a bust most of the night, but he was on target when it counted. And for the first time in more than a year, Ickey Woods got to do his shuffle. Esiason, who completed seven of 17 passes for 85 yards, failed in a bid to reach 20,000 yards for his career, but he completed touchdown passes to Rodney Holman and Mike Barber as the Cincinnati Bengals beat the Cleveland Browns, 34-13, Monday night.

Marty Schottenheimer quit as Cleveland Browns coach Tuesday after refusing to relinquish his role as offensive coordinator. Schottenheimer and Brown owner Art Modell said the coach was departing by mutual agreement. "It became evident that some of the differences we had, we weren't going to be able to resolve," Schottenheimer said. "We came to an agreement that it was in everybody's best interest that we part company. I appreciate the opportunity Art gave me to become a head coach.
