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).
