SMU’s board of governors called for a probe Wednesday into claims by former board chairman and current Gov Bill Clements that he and other members knew about cash payments to athletes, but intended to phase them out. Current board members flatly denied any knowledge of payments to players and said anyone who knew about them should resign. Meanwhile, local Methodist leaders demanded that Clements apologize for his role in the fiasco ' and that any school officials involved in it resign immediately. said Earl Carter, executive director of the United Methodist's eight-state South Central Jurisdiction Besides seeking the apology, the group of about 40 pea pie led by the Rev Williams J Washington called for an expanded investigation into the matter, he said The SMU board members were anxious to comply They asked the president of the Methodist church s Col lege of Bishops to appoint an "external committee" to in vestigate the accuracy of their statements "Everyone unanimously said they were not aware of any continuing payments." board chairman William Hut chison said after the board meeting Wednesday Clements, who resigned from the board before his January inauguration, offered no explant ion for the others denials "Well I d just keep talking to them if I were you Everybody has to say what they're comfortable with said the governor, who also discounted the possibility of any political effect on his administration Last week, the NCAA abolished SMI' s 1987 football program in the harshest penalty against any collegiate football program The NCAA said a $61,000 slush fund set up by a school booster was used to pay 13 players At the time allegations of the latest payments surfaced, SMU already was on a three-year probation that began in August 1985 In assessing SMU's seventh probation last week, the NCAA said payments continued through December 1986 Hutchison said Wednesday he spoke with Clements by telephone after the governor's news conference Tuesday and that Clements told him that "the Board of Governors as a board was not a part of this thing." indicating that perhaps an inner circle of the governor s had discussed them in 1985 NCAA enforcement director David Berst said Wednes day he was surprised by Clements comments ■ I don't know what we ll do at this juncture."
