The University of Tulsa has formed a seven-member
committee to advise University of Tulsa President Bob Lawless in
the search for a new head football coach.

The committee will be led by athletic director Judy MacLeod and
will make a recommendation to Lawless. T-U said the names of the
other committee members would be kept confidential.

The university fired head coach Dave Rader after 12 years on
October 25th. The firing came in the middle of Rader's
eighth-straight losing season. Defensive coordinator Pat Henderson
was named interim head coach.

MacLeod said the timing gave T-U the chance to get a jump in the
search for a replacement. She said Henderson would be a candidate.

The university said in a news release today that it would have
no further comment about the search until it announces its choice.

The Golden Hurricane faces University of Texas-El Paso at the
Sun Bowl tomorrow. T-U is 1-and-7, 0-and-5 in the Western Athletic
Conference.
