    f Calvin resigns as NU women’s tennis coach
I By Steve Hill
Staff Reporter
Nebraska Athletic Director Bob
Devaney said last week’s resignation
of Comhuskcr women’s tennis coach
Gregg Calvin was financially based.
Calvin’s salary of $16,500 wasn’t
enough, Devaney said.
Devaney said he wanted to keep
NU softball player
receives NCAA,
Big Eight honors
Nebraska senior softball player Jill
Rishel was the top vole-getter to be
named to the GTE Academic All
America First-Team by the members
of the College Sports Information
Directors of America.
Rishel, a right fielder for the Corn
huskers, earned the award by posting
a 3.63 cumulative grade-point aver
age in broadcasting. She becomes the
ninth Huskcr softball player to cam
the honor in the last seven years.
She finished her career with a .268
batting average, the 10th best on the
all-time Huskcr charts.
The North Platte native earned First
Team Lee Jeans/Big Eight All-Aca
demic, Second-Team NCAA Mid
west All-Region and honorable-men
tion All-Big Eight honors as well this
Calvin, who in his two years moved
the Huskers from fifth to third in the
Big Eight, but the money wasn’t there.
“He thought that financially, he
could do bettet for himself,” Deva
ney said. “I tried to see if I could get
him more money, but it wasn’t
Calvin, who led Nebraska to a 26
12 record in his two years, said he quit
to go into business, but added that he
would someday like to get back to
tennis. Nebraska was 17-7 this sea
“I had no problem with the ath
letic department,” Calvin said. “They
were great to work with.”
Devaney blamed the inability to
increase the tennis team’s budget on
the loss of revenue from the Okla
homa and Oklahoma Stale football
team’s placement on NCAA proba
tion. The penalties hurt the athletic
budgets at each of the Big Eight schools,
he said.
Calvin declined to take credit for
the program’s improvement, but said
he has fond memories of the turn
“I’ll remember the team’sehange
to a winning attitude more then any
thing,” he said. “It was really hard
for me to tell the team, especially
now when the seniors are ready to
make a challenge for tops in the Big
Calvin said the future looks bright
for the team and credits the turn
around to a better work ethic. Ne
braska returns four seniors next year.
‘‘They’re a talented bunch that
works hard and always keeps a good
attitude,” he said. ‘‘They’ll continue
to improve.”
Husker senior Ildiko Cuba, a No. 1
singles player from Budapest, Hun
gary, said she was shocked when she
first heard of Calvin’s resignation.
But she said she respects Calvin’s
decision to do what he thought was
best for him.
Oklahoma Slate has been the
dominant team in the conference, but
under Calvin Nebraska has closed the
gap, she said.
“We know we can do it,” she
said. “We proved this year that we
can compete.”
No indication has been made on
who Calvin’s replacement might be.
“There’s a lot of good applicants,
and I know the university will be
dedicated to finding a good replace
ment for me,” Calvin said.
Guba tossed in her nominee, say
ing she feels the transition might be
easier if assistant coach Scott Jacob
son were to take over.
