ever been around, because of the
effort. because of the focus,
because of what the football team
and our coaching staff had to over-
come," Torbush said.
Many of those who stopped
short of calling for Torbush to be
fired insisted instead that he dismiss
Marshall and that he consider relin-
quishing his defensive coordinator's
role to someone else. Baddour
said in November there would be
no changes in Torbush's contract
and no pressure on him from the
athletics department to make staff
changes. T orbush said at that time
he would evaluate the entire staff,
as he does every year.
Marshall was a member of the
staff for two seasons. He came to
Carolina after a year as offensive
coordinator at Texas MM. Hofher
also spent two seasons here fol-
lowing eight years as head coach at
Cornell. Mack was an assistant for
14 years at Virginia before coach-
ing at Carolina for four years.
N.C. State now finds Carolina
an even more formidable recruiting
opponent than before: O'Cain had
a solid reputation among high
school coaches in the region. And,
in fulfilling O'Cain's contract, State
will pay him the difference between
his UNC salary and $146,000 for
each of the next three years.
O'Cain's career as a head coach is
over at least for now, at 41-40
over seven seasons.
"We're thrilled to be able to
add a coach and person the caliber
of Mike O'Cain to the North
Carolina football program," T orbush
said. "I've known Mike since 1976
when I was an assistant at South-
eastern Louisiana and Mike was at
Murray State and we were recruit-
ing the same areas. Since that time,
I have maintained a great friendship
with Mike and it's no secret that I
admire and respect what he's done
throughout his career as a football

N.C. Hillel Rebuilding to Accommodate Growth
If growth is a sign of a good organization, then North Carolina Hillel certainly is thriving. Since 1936, Hillel has provided Jewish students at UNC and across the
state a place to worship, meet friends and learn about Jewish culture. The orga-
nization has become so successful that it has outgrown its small one-story home
on Cameron Avenue, according to Rabbi Ed Elkin, the executive director.
