Ivy Speculations Open on Fourth Football Leader

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

If Lloyd Jordan is dismissed from his position as head coach of the Harvard football team, there will be a vacancy in the Ivy League coaching ranks for the second time this year.

Already, however, discussion concerning such a move on the part of the University makes it the fourth time this year that speculation has arisen over the future of an Ivy League mentor.

Columbia's mandatory retirement at 65 brought about the end of Lou Little's coaching career at the end of the season. He had been head coach at Columbia for over twenty years. His replacement, former Boston University coach Aldo "Buff" Donelli, was announced recently by Columbia.

Shortly after this announcement, Little told newsmen that his retirement from the football scene was final only in the Ivy League. He said that he would be "very interested" in an offer from B.U. to take over Donelli's position in what would amount to a swapping of head coaches between the two schools.

Sebo Rehired

At the University of Pennsylvania, there was much ado last November over the merits of Steve Sebo as coach of the Penn eleven. Players voted in favor of ending his reign. Their sentiments received backing from the Dally Pennsylvanian, most of the student body, and many alumni, but Penn's president, Gaylord P. Harnwell, did not recognize these pressures and recently rehired Sebo for another term as head coach.

Finally, Yale coach Jordan Olivar has reportedly been offered the coaching job at the University of Southern California. Although similar past rumors have taken him west it is possible that as the years go by his business interests in California might lure him to the West Coast appointment which would presumably carry a higher salary, as well as a larger degree of freedom in obtaining top football talent. He previously coached at Loyola of Los Angeles.
