Jim Harbaugh said he will not leave Michigan to return to coaching in the NFL, emphasizing that he has big plans at Ann Arbor. This is a choreographed message that comes up at this time every year before signing day, Harbaugh told ESPN this weekend. Its people spreading messages to further their own personal agenda. But Im on record right here, right now: Im not going anywhere. Im staying at Michigan. We have big plans here, and theres a lot we want to accomplish. Harbaugh has been spending his recent time recruiting in multiple states and said he has not spoken to any NFL teams. But he is aware of the speculation connecting him to NFL teams, as has been the case during each of his four years at Michigan. I cant be any more clear about this -- its not true, Harbaugh said. Im not going anywhere. Harbaugh is 38-13 in his four years at Michigan and coached the Wolverines to a 10-2 record this season. Michigan finished at No. 7 overall in the...
Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett has made multiple attempts this season to get former Dallas tight end Jason Witten to come out of retirement and help the Cowboys in their postseason push, league sources told ESPN. Witten has resisted those overtures, some of which came in recent weeks, as tempting as it might have been to help his former team, sources said. Dallas has struggled at the tight end position because of poor performance and injury, and Garrett was convinced that Witten could step right back in and become another asset on an offense that has come alive in recent weeks since the acquisition of wide receiver Amari Cooper. Witten, however, ultimately is committed to the Monday Night Football booth and to his new craft as a broadcast analyst, according to sources.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Baltimore Ravens called the racist tweets made by fullback/defensive lineman Patrick Ricard six years ago totally unacceptable. In 2011 and 2012, Ricard posted at least six tweets that used the N-word. These tweets surfaced on social media on Sunday morning before the Ravens game against the Chiefs, and Ricard was a healthy scratch for the third time this season. The Ravens issued this statement: The tweets are totally unacceptable, and we have addressed the matter with Pat. We expect hell have something to say later today after the game. Ricard, an undrafted rookie out of Maine in 2017, has played 10 games this season. He has been nicknamed Project Pat because he is one of the few players who line up on offense and defense. He has made four tackles this season and has played 90 snaps on offense. Ricard is active on Twitter and regularly invites teammates to dinner for what he labels ProjectPatsFoodReview.
Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Kyler Murray apologized Sunday morning after anti-gay tweets he made in 2011-12 surfaced hours after he won the Heisman Trophy. The tweets, from when Murray was 14 and 15 years old, were deleted from his account late Saturday night. After throwing for more than 4,000 yards and 40 touchdowns this season, Murray beat out fellow quarterbacks Tua Tagovailoa of Alabama and Dwayne Haskins of Ohio State to become the second straight quarterback from Oklahoma to win college footballs most prestigious award, following in Baker Mayfields footsteps. Murray, a junior from the Dallas suburbs, has signed a $4.66 million contract with the Oakland Athletics after he was selected in the first round of the Major League Baseball draft in June and this season may be his last in college football.
