Seth Greenberg joined Virginia Tech on Thursday, agreeing to a six-year contract and hoping to turn around a program that has suffered through three consecutive losing seasons. Athletic Director Jim Weaver called Greenberg "the ideal candidate" and said he'll get a base salary of $158,000, with other incentives bringing its value to $429,064 a year. Greenberg, 47, formerly at South Florida, replaces Ricky Stokes, fired last month after a 45-70 record in four seasons.

Eager to move on from the Bobby Petrino scandal, Arkansas announced Monday that popular former assistant John L. Smith will return as head coach of the Razorbacks next season. Smith, who left the Razorbacks after last season to become the head coach at Weber State, will be formally introduced Tuesday. The school said Smith signed a one-year, $850,000 contract and will also be eligible for other incentives. Smith's return caps a whirlwind three weeks for an Arkansas program reeling from revelations of an affair by Petrino with a woman, Jessica Dorrell , he later hired as his assistant.

Seth Greenberg, on his new job this week as men's basketball coach at Cal State Long Beach, looked contented behind what had been Joe Harrington's desk. Harrington's things were in boxes on the floor; his executive putting green stood ready to be packed. A radio, which had played country-Western music when Harrington was coach, emitted classic rock. Yellow flowers brightened the modest office.

Cassell Coliseum is something of a second home to Seth Greenberg, who for the last four seasons has coached the Virginia Tech men's basketball team. Tuesday, however, it was where Greenberg and thousands of other community members gathered to mourn the victims of Monday's shooting spree. The former Long Beach State coach is not only an employee of the school, he's also the father of a Virginia Tech student.

The men's and women's basketball teams at Cal State Long Beach appear to be headed in opposite directions. For second-year men's Coach Seth Greenberg, who guided the 49ers to an 18-12 record and berth in the National Invitation Tournament, the future looks bright. The 49ers, who won seven more games in 1991-92 than they did in 1990-91, return six key players who generated two-thirds of the team's offense and rebounding. But the future for first-year women's Coach Glenn McDonald could be rocky.

"Blame it on me," said Cal State Long Beach basketball Coach Seth Greenberg, with a trace of sarcasm beneath his good nature. "I'm surprised I didn't see myself hanging in effigy from the ceiling of the gym." Greenberg's first season as a head coach has produced an unexpected 11-16 record, with final bits of wreckage expected to be strewn Friday night in the Long Beach Arena when the 49ers play top-ranked Nevada Las Vegas in the Big West Conference tournament.

It was nice to see that Cal State Long Beach finally made the front page of last Tuesday's edition, but it was typical to downgrade the victory by mentioning old news (Saturday's loss to Virginia Commonwealth). Let's give Seth Greenberg's team the credit it deserves. Look out, Jim Harrick: the Beach owns L.A. JOHN DeLUCA San Pedro

Long Beach State on Thursday presented basketball Coach Seth Greenberg with an offer to dissuade him from pursuing the USC job, Long Beach officials said. Long Beach Athletic Director Dave O'Brien pledged increased financial support to his coach and the program during an afternoon on-campus meeting, prompted partly by the news Wednesday that USC Athletic Director Mike Garrett had asked permission to interview Greenberg.

I can hear it now: "I did it for my family. The offer was too good to pass up. My family needed the security." Yeah, right. Seth Greenberg is the classic hypocrite. Did he not tell his recruits that they were part of a "building program?" That he was their coach and his contract was renegotiated just last year for long-term security and stability? What happens to the players who came to Long Beach State because of "Coach" Greenberg's promises? They can't pack up and leave (without penalty)

Mark Kizla of the Denver Post isn't a big fan of Kansas Coach Roy Williams, who many say is a candidate for the North Carolina job: "Want to know how the coaches at the Final Four rank? 1. Tom Crean, Marquette; 2. Jim Boeheim, Syracuse; 3. Rick Barnes, Texas; 4. Williams, Kansas. "Why the Jayhawks are stuck with so many bad recent NCAA tourney memories in their scrapbook is the coach's own darn fault.

Forward Marcus Johnson has been suspended indefinitely for the second time in his two-year Long Beach State career. First-year Coach Wayne Morgan said Johnson, a 6-foot-9, 210-pound junior, is off the team "because of a breach of team protocol," but declined to specify the reason. Johnson will not be allowed to practice with the team. Last season, Johnson was suspended because of a locker-room altercation with then-Coach Seth Greenberg after a game.
