TOUGH LUCK OF THE IRISH: ADIDAS WON'T HELP LAND MAJERUS

          adidas Dir of Sports Marketing Sonny Vaccaro said that
     the company is "not in a position to help increase the size"
     of a "potential" offer from Notre Dame to Univ. of UT men's
     basketball coach Rick Majerus, according to Malcolm Moran of
     the CHICAGO TRIBUNE.  Industry sources have "suggested" that
     adidas, which has a relationship with the Notre Dame, could
     reduce the gap between the amount the university "appears
     prepared to offer" Majerus and his total "estimated" salary
     of $1M, which includes a deal with Reebok.  Vaccaro said
     that adidas wouldn't increase the amount it gives to the
     university's basketball team in order to "attract a top
     candidate."  Vaccaro: "We give them the dollars and they do
     what they want with it" (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 3/18).
