PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) No. 21 Washington State has dismissed leading receiver Tavares Martin Jr. from the team for violation of team rules.
A school spokesman confirmed the move Sunday. Martin led the Cougars with 70 receptions and nine touchdowns during the regular season as Washington State went 9-3 and earned a spot in the Holiday Bowl. He was named second-team all-Pac-12 by the AP.
Martin, a junior from Belle Glade, Florida, also was suspended for a game in October against Colorado for violating team rules. He had 150 receptions and 17 touchdowns in his three seasons with the Cougars.
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) Missouri coach Barry Odom has been given a two-year contract extension through the 2022-23 season.
Odom's salary will remain at $2.35 million annually for the additional two years, though he was also given a ticket-based incentive - with 20 percent of any home revenue above $11.7 million going to the second-year coach.
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Chris Del Conte is leaving TCU to take over the University of Texas' athletic department.
The surprise move was announced Saturday by Texas President Greg Fenves, and Del Conte will start his new job Monday. He succeeds Mike Perrin, who was hired in 2015 after former athletic director Steve Patterson was forced out after less than two years.
Oregon assistant Mario Cristobal was officially promoted to head coach a year to the day after Willie Taggart was introduced.
Taggart bolted Tuesday for the top job at Florida State, and Cristobal - the co-offensive coordinator and offensive line coach - was named interim coach for the Las Vegas Bowl. But after a groundswell of support from the players, that interim label was removed on Friday.
