University of Washington Coach Don James, 55,...

University of Washington Coach Don James, 55, has indicated he may retire after his contract expires after the 1992 season.

“I’m 10 years away from normal retirement age,” he said, but added that Athletic Director Mike Ludd “has got me for 4 more years on my contract, and I’m not interested in an extension of that.”

James made his remarks after Washington’s 28-25 victory over Stanford at Husky Stadium Saturday. The Huskies are 5-3 overall and 2-3 in the Pacific 10 Conference.

James has tied former USC coach John McKay as the winningest coach in Pac-10 football history with 70 victories.

“The only fun in this game is winning,” James said. “I’m going to enjoy the preparation for Arizona (Saturday). If we’d lost this game, the preparation is just awful. You go home and you can’t sleep. You wake up at 3 and you just can’t get it off your mind.”
