Washington coach Neuheisel reportedly fired, June 11, 2003

SEATTLE (Ticker) - Rick Neuheisel reportedly is out as football coach at the University of Washington.

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer reported that Neuheisel was fired Tuesday by athletic director Barbara Hedges for breaking NCAA rules prohibiting gambling. According to numerous reports, Neuheisel has admitted to entering high-stakes gambling pools during the last two NCAA men's basketball tournaments.

The newspaper said Keith Gilbertson, the Huskies' offensive coordinator, would be named the team's interim coach and that the rest of the staff would be retained. "I don't know either of those things," Gilbertson told the paper. "I have not spoken to (Hedges) about that at all. I'd tell you if I had." Neuheisel did not return a call for comment Tuesday night, the paper said.

According to the paper, Neuheisel invested $6,400 and won $12,123 during his two years participating in the pools. NCAA bylaw 10.3 prohibits athletic department employees and student-athletes from gambling.

Neuheisel went 33-15 in four years at Washington. Prior to coaching the Huskies, Neuheisel went 33-14 with Colorado from 1995-98.

COVERING DIVERSITY : SPJ Event

**forwards encouraged.**

COVERING DIVERSITY
SPJ Forum Scheduled for June 12

The panel discussion will be held on Thursday, June 12, 7-9 p.m. at the Seattle Times Auditorium, Fairview and John in Seattle. Free. (be sure to show up early to socialize.)

There are over 20 newspapers published in Seattle in languages other than English. Local schools deal with children speaking more than three dozen languages in their ESL programs, and even that doesn't reflect the growing cultural diversity of the area.

Newspeople in the Seattle area face an increasing challenges to be inclusive in the way we cover our region. How can reporters and other journalists can better reach and reach out to underserved ethnic communities? Specifically, how we can cover news that is of concern to the diverse communities? How do we find sources and information to better include them in news and feature stories in the area.

The Western Washington Pro Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists will wrap up their series of public interest presentations for the season with a panel discussion on including the area's diverse ethnic communities.

The panelists are Pramila Jayapal, exec. director of the Hate Free Zone project, Naomi Ishisaka, editor of Colors NW magazine and a representative of the Idriss Mosque in north Seattle. Seattle Times reporter Leslie Fulbright will moderate the discussion. Fulbright, who moved here from the SF Bay Area, covers social issues out of the Bellevue bureau.
