Hood out as Eastern Kentucky coach

(STATS) - Eastern Kentucky fired Dean Hood on Monday in what figures to be one of the more surprising head coaching changes of the football offseason. Hood, 52, went 55-38 with two Ohio Valley Conference titles and three FCS playoff appearances in eight seasons.

Florida seeks bowl eligibility in home finale

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) No matter what Florida does Saturday, it won't really change the season.
