  • BIG 12 HEAD STEVE HATCHELL RESIGNS; DID REPORT HASTEN MOVE?

              Big 12 Conference Commissioner STEVE HATCHELL resigned
         Thursday, "two weeks after reports that an internal
         investigation of the league office alleged that he created a
         hostile work environment for staff members," according to
         Bill Campbell of the DALLAS MORNING NEWS.  Conference COO
         DAVE MARTIN was named interim Commissioner.  Martin said it
         could be six to nine months before a permanent successor is
         chosen.  Campbell writes that Hatchell "declined to reveal
         terms of his resignation."  Hatchell: "We've agreed that this
         is the end of the chapter, and we're moving on."  Big 12
         Chair RAY BOWEN said that Hatchell denies all the allegations
         made in a report filed by the law firm of Shook, Hardy and
         Bacon for the conference.  Bowen added that none of the
         allegations have been proven (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 5/8).
