Krause also will com- plete pre-publication on two new books while winding up revisions of an earlier work. Joe Folda, assistant to .Krause for the last three seasons, will serve as interim coach at EWU for the 1982-83 season. Krause, past president of the NAIA Basketball Coaches Association and in line to be- come president of the Nation- al Association of Basketball Coaches, has compiled a ca- reer record of 246 victories and 159 defeats at EWU. His 1982 team narrowly missed an NCAA Division II playoff berth after posting a 19-8 record. Krause also is a member of the NCAA Basketball Rules Committee. "I'm really excited about going to Oregon State," Krause said. "Of course, Ralph Miller has an excellent basketball program and the right combination of aca- demic circumstances are there, too. I seriously con- sidered eight or nine schools, but Oregon State offered both on-the-floor coaching oppor- tunity and it is on the quarter system. I can take the three courses I want in the first two quarters and then spend the third quarter finishing up the books." Krause is writing two new texts, "The Basketball Bible" and "Basketball Basics", while revising his earlier book, "Mechanical Founda- tions of Human Motion." Folda has coached in Sei- bert, Colorado, at Holy Fam- ily High School in Denver, in Sidney, Nebraska, and he returned to his alma mater, Sterling High, for two seasons before joining the EWU staff in the fall of 1979. Folda's teams won six league clamp- ionships, including four in four seasons in Sidney where his best club finished third in the state tournament. ,Athletic Director Ron Raver also announced a 29- game schedule which opens with an exhibition in Cheney against Athletes in Action- Canada. The schedule ap- pears to be the most difficult in several years, including games with four Division I teams, one of them Univer- sity of Idaho's two-time Big Sky Conference champions. Coach Krause Krause and Folda revealed that Eastern has concluded its recruiting, signing front- court standout Jay Bryan who will be a junior transfer from Golden Valley Lutheran College in Minnesota. From Buffalo Lake, Minn., Bryan is 6'6", 205 lbs. and he averaged 15 points and I0 rebounds per game last winter. Bryan will Coach Folda replace a potential freshman recruit, Chuck Glovic of Aberdeen, who declined to sign a letter of intent at the last moment. Krause currently is seventh vice president of the National Association of Basketball Coaches. No one has been president of both NABC and the NAIA coaches group. Krause also is research chair- man of NABC. "I look on this opportunity as a real challenge," Folda said. "We'll have a young team facing a tougher sched- ule so it will be a challenge to maintain the winning record of what has been a very successful program." Raver said that, consider- ing the severe budgetary re- strictions faced by Washing- ton colleges and universities, EWU hoped to be able to hire a fulltime assistant to Folda, but that decision has been delayed for further evalua- tion. The 1983 schedule will in- clude, as it did in 1982, 10 games on a home-and-home basis with the other five NCAA Division II teams in the region. The six schools played unofficially as the Great Northwest Conference last winter. The scheduling arrangement may be formal- ized later this spring. The six schools are EWU, Eastern Montana, Puget Sound, Seat- tle Pacific, Alaska-Anchor- age and Alaska-Fairbanks. Anchorage won the title last winter. The Seawolves and Eastern Montana competed in regional tournaments. Krause and the late W.B. (Red) Reese have accounted for two-thirds of the recorded history of Eastern Washing- ton University basketball. Krause replaced Ernie McKie, who was released after three seasons, for the 1968 season. Krause's best team was the 1977 club which featured All-American Ron Cox and Paul Hungenberg. The Eagles finished with a 25-4 record that winter. One year after moving into its current facility, Reese Court, Krause directed EWU to 31 consecutive home victories from Dec. 1, 1976 through Nov. 27, 1978. EWU graduates all fives of its 1982 starters, but the Eagles will have six letter- men to go with redshirt for- ward John Bell and three transfers.
