Morrison Says He's Staying at USC

USC basketball Coach Stan Morrison said Wednesday that he has no intention of leaving the school to take another coaching job. It has been rumored that he was a possible replacement for Dick Kuchen at California.

"I love USC," Morrison said. "I believe that the athletic administration, university administration and Stan Morrison have the same goals. I appreciate the university's earnest effort to assist me in reaching that goal, and I'm excited and pleased to be at USC. I never wanted to leave."

It is believed that Morrison's contract has been improved both in salary and tenure. Also, Morrison has been told by the administration that basketball now has a high priority at the school, with the possibility of an arena being built on campus if the Sports Arena becomes unsuitable.
