TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Florida coach Dan Mullen's personal beliefs about violence toward women haven't resulted in a zero-tolerance policy for his program. Mullen expressed disappointment in having two players and a staff member accused of violence toward women in the past month. But he also acknowledged that he'd "be hypocritical if you look at my history to say to that is a 100% deal."

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — New Alabama basketball coach Nate Oats' contract includes hefty buyouts if he leaves for another job or is fired. University of Alabama trustees formally approved Oats' 5-year deal worth $2.45 million annually, though the university had earlier released some of the details. Alabama would owe him nearly $9.2 million if the school fires Oats within the first year.
