Virginia Tech running back Kevin Jones will pass up his final season of college eligibility to enter the NFL draft, his father and the team's running backs coach said.

Al Saunders, an offensive coordinator for the Kansas City Chiefs, said he has not been contacted by Nebraska about the job as head football coach. Saunders' name has surfaced in media reports in Nebraska as a possible replacement for Frank Solich, who was fired last week.
Boise State accepted a conditional bid to play TCU in the inaugural Fort Worth Bowl on Dec. 23. If the Big 12 gets two teams in the Bowl Championship Series as expected, the league won't have enough bowl-eligible teams to send a team to Fort Worth. That would create an at-large spot for No. 18 Boise State, the WAC champion.
Clemson football coach Tommy Bowden agreed to a contract extension that will keep him with the Tigers until 2010 with unprecedented buyout clauses: If Bowden is fired before 2005, Clemson will owe him $4 million. And if Bowden leaves on his own before then, he'll owe the school the same amount.
Iowa State football coach Dan McCarney fired assistants Steve Brickey and Marty Fine.
The NFL extended its suspension for Cleveland Browns running back William Green, making it unlikely he will play again this season.

Arizona Cardinals linebacker Raynoch Thompson has been suspended by the NFL for the final four games of the season for violating the league's substance abuse policy. The suspension could cost Thompson between $300,000 and $400,000 in lost salary.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Joe Jurevicius and cornerback Tim Wansley were placed on injured reserve. The Super Bowl champions released fullback Vinny Ciurciu and signed safety Scott Frost, receiver Marvin Minnis and cornerback Ronyell Whitaker.
