Purdue keeps Brohm…Tech coach retires…Jazz acquire Korver…Fournette suspension sticks

UNDATED (AP) – Purdue football coach Jeff Brohm has told athletic director Mike Bobinski that he intends to keep his job with the Boilermakers rather than take the head coaching job at his alma mater, Louisville. Brohm is 13-12 in two seasons and has taken the Boilermakers to back-to-back bowl games for the first time since 2011-12. He beat rival Indiana both years and pulled off one of this season’s most shocking upsets in October with a 29-point rout of then-No. 2 Ohio State.

ATLANTA (AP) – Georgia Tech football coach Paul Johnson has retired after 11 seasons and an 82-59 record with the Yellow Jackets. The 61-year-old Johnson is the school’s longest-serving football coach in a half-century, leading the Yellow Jackets to eight bowl appearances and three trips to the ACC championship game. Georgia Tech finished its regular season 7-5 despite a 1-3 start, winning four straight games before a 45-21 loss at Georgia last Saturday.

UNDATED (AP) – Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray are among the five finalists named for the Walter Camp national player of the award. Joining the two Heisman Trophy contenders as finalists are West Virginia quarterback Will Grier, Washington State quarterback Gardner Minshew and Kentucky linebacker Josh Allen. The winner will be announced Dec. 6.

CLEVELAND (AP) – The Cleveland Cavaliers are sending veteran forward Kyle Korver to the Utah Jazz for guard Alec Burks and two future second-round draft picks, according to a person familiar with the deal. The 37-year-old Korver is one of the best long-range shooters in NBA history, ranking fourth in NBA history with 2,238 3-pointers and hitting 43 percent of his attempts from beyond the arc. He played for the Jazz from 2007-10.

NEW YORK (AP) – Leonard Fournette’s appeal of a one-game suspension for fighting has been denied, leaving the Jacksonville Jaguars running back unavailable against the Colts. Fournette was suspended without pay for leaving the sideline, running across the field and punching Bills defensive end Shaq Lawson during Sunday’s loss at Buffalo. The Jaguars could also be without cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who missed practice yesterday because of a knee injury and might not do any on-field work all week.
