Gators’ Dressel, Gamecocks’ Wilson are SEC athletes of year

FILE - In this May 20, 2018, file photo, Las Vegas Aces forward A'ja Wilson (22) tries to get a rebound between Connecticut Sun forward Alyssa Thomas, left, and guard Courtney Williams during a WNBA basketball game Sunday, May 20, 2018, in Uncasville, Conn. The Aces have the advantage of a scheduling anomaly this season that gives them six home games when their opponent is finishing off a back-to-back. That's over a third of Las Vegas' home contests this year. The next closest team is Washington with three such games. Five teams don't even have one home game like that. (Sean D.

This photo shows 1978 employment application information for Dr. Richard Strauss, from Ohio State University’s personnel files reviewed by The Associated Press. Strauss, who died in 2005, and is now accused of sexual misconduct by former student athletes at the university, once said he acted as a team physician elsewhere.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — On paper, Richard Strauss was a well-regarded Ohio State University physician who examined young athletes for decades as a team doctor and sports-medicine researcher.

NCAA prepares minority coordinators for coaching jobs

FILE - In this Dec. 27, 2015, file photo, Clemson co-offensive coordinators Tony Elliott, left, and Jeff Scott speak to the media at a news conference in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Despite helping Clemson win a national title as co-offensive coordinator, Elliott has never interviewed for a head-coaching job. College football as a public entity can’t institute a Rooney Rule like the NFL to compel programs to interview minority candidates for head coaching jobs. So the NCAA is trying to do the next best thing by putting some of the rising coaching stars through its Champion Forum that better prepares them for the interview process in an effort to increase the diversity in the Power Five conferences and across the country.
