Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Ohio State Fires Women’s Basketball Coach Jim Foster
Ohio State University has fired women’s basketball coach Jim Foster.
Foster’s dismissal came after the team had a losing record in the Big Ten Conference and failed to qualify for the NCAA tournament.
Foster coached OSU women for 11 seasons, and was the winningest coach in the program’s history in terms of winning percentage and total wins.
His record was 279 wins and 82 losses.
OSU Athletics Director Gene Smith called Foster a wonderful representative of the university who provided exceptional mentoring to young people on and off the court. “The Ohio State women’s basketball program was made better under Jim’s leadership,” said Smith in a statement.
A national search for Foster’s replacement is underway.
