Driskill Quits Colts Post To Enter Private Business BALTIMORE, Md., May 15 UP.— Walter S. Driskill today announced his resignation as executive vice-president and general manager of the Baltimore Colts "to enter a business field other than football." He will be succeeded by Al Ennis, former official of the Philadelphia Eagles and currently assistant to Bert Bell, commissioner of the National Football League. A former assistant coach at the University of Oklahoma, Driskill took over as coach of the Colts midway during the last All-America Conference football season following the resignation of Cecil Isbell after the Baltimore club had dropped four consecutive games. Under Driskill, the Colts won one and lost seven of their remaining games.
