    NDSU FOOTBALL-COACHES

    FARGO, N.D. (NDSU) - North Dakota State head football coach Matt Entz announced the addition of two defensive and two offensive assistant coaches to the Bison staff today.
 
    David Braun has been named NDSU's defensive coordinator and safeties coach, Grant Olson is the linebackers coach, AJ Blazek is the offensive line coach, and Noah Pauley will be the wide receivers coach.
 
    Braun comes to NDSU after two seasons at Northern Iowa, where he was the defensive line coach and run game coordinator in 2017 and the outside linebackers coach and special teams coordinator in 2018. He is a graduate of Winona State, where he played defensive line for Entz from 2004-07 and joined him on staff as a graduate assistant for two years.
 
    Olson, who played linebacker on three national championship teams for NDSU from 2010-13, returns to his alma mater after two seasons as the linebackers coach at Indiana State. Olson was a student assistant coach with Entz at NDSU in 2014 before spending the 2015-16 seasons as a graduate assistant on Craig Bohl's staff at Wyoming.
 
    Blazek spent the past three seasons at Rutgers as the offensive line coach including two years as the assistant head coach. He coached the offensive line at Western Illinois from 2013-15 and Winona State from 2009-12, spending one year with Entz on each of those staffs. Blazek was an All-Big Ten center at Iowa, where he was a student assistant and graduate assistant for four seasons before moving on to Fort Hays State from 2005-08.
 
    Pauley joins the Bison after three seasons as the offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach at Minnesota-Duluth, where he was a four-year starter for the Bulldogs as a player from 2007-10. He played on teams that went 45-8 and won two Division II national championships before joining the staff as a graduate assistant in 2013.

     MLB-NEWS
 
     UNDATED (AP) - A person familiar with the negotiations tells The Associated Press that free-agent second baseman Brian Dozier and the Washington Nationals have agreed to a $9 million, one-year contract, subject to the successful completion of a physical exam.
 
     The person confirmed the deal on condition of anonymity Thursday because neither the club nor player had announced the deal.
 
     Dozier, who played for the Minnesota Twins and Los Angeles Dodgers last season, would fill Washington's need for a new starting second baseman and could help add some power to the lineup, particularly important if slugging outfielder Bryce Harper ends up leaving the Nationals as a free agent.
 
     By only committing to Dozier for one season, the Nationals leave open the possibility of turning to leading prospect Carter Kieboom at second base in 2020.
 
     In other baseball news:
 
     - Free agent outfielder Jon Jay and the Chicago White Sox have finalized a $4 million, one-year contract. The 33-year-old Jay played for Kansas City and Arizona last season, batting .268 with three homers and 40 RBIs in 143 games. He also made at least 24 starts at each spot in the outfield. The addition of Jay gives the White Sox another veteran hitter after they struck out 1,594 times last season, tops in the majors.
 
     - Left-handed reliever Luis Avilan has agreed to a minor league contract with the New York Mets and will report to major league spring training. The 29-year-old Venezuelan held left-handed batters to a .220 average last year, when he was 2-1 with a 3.77 ERA and two saves in 70 games for the Chicago White Sox and Philadelphia.
 
     - An arbitrator has denied a grievance filed by the Major League Baseball Players Association on behalf of right-handed pitcher Carter Stewart, who failed to sign with the Atlanta Braves last summer and will be eligible for this year's amateur draft. The union claimed the Braves failed to make Stewart an offer of at least 40 percent of his slot value.

     NFL-NEWS
 
     UNDATED (AP) - Thomas Davis says he's been informed by the Panthers he won't be back with them for a 15th NFL season.
 
     The three-time Pro Bowl linebacker is the Panthers' all-time leading tackler. He overcame a torn ACL in his same knee three times to record 1,094 tackles, 28 sacks and 13 interceptions. Davis was an All-Pro in 2015, the year he went to his only Super Bowl.
 
     However, Davis posted on Twitter late Wednesday night that the Panthers informed him they were moving in a different direction at linebacker. The 35-year-old Davis thanked the organization for "14 special years," but said that he's not retiring. He becomes a free agent in March.
 
     In other NFL news:
 
     - New York Jets tight end Chris Herndon has pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated in New Jersey. A municipal judge in Rockaway Township on Wednesday suspended the fourth-round draft pick's driver's license for 90 days and fined him $639. New Jersey State Police say the 22-year-old Herndon was driving his Nissan Armada in June when he crashed into a Toyota Land Cruiser that was towing a trailer carrying another vehicle. The 76-year-old driver was not injured. Herndon could face suspension for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy.

     NHL-BLUE JACKETS-BOBROVSKY
 
     COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky will miss Thursday night's game because of an unspecified team "incident."
 
     General manager Jarmo Kekalainen says in a statement that "there are certain expectations and values that we have established for our players that define our culture. An incident occurred in which Sergei failed to meet those expectations and values."
 
     The team made the announcement several hours before the Blue Jackets were set to play host to the Nashville Predators. Backup Joonas Korpisalo is in line to start.
 
     The 30-year-old Bobrovsky is 18-13-1 in the final year of his contract and so far has declined to sign a long-term extension.
 
     Coach John Tortorella declined to comment on the matter.

     TENNIS-AUSTRALIAN OPEN DRAW
 
     MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) - Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic are each aiming for a record seventh men's Australian Open title and the draw has ensured they can't play each other at Melbourne Park until the final.
 
     Top-ranked Djokovic starts at the top of the draw and will open against a qualifier. Defending champion Federer, seeded No. 3, is in the bottom half of the draw with second-ranked Rafael Nadal.
 
     Serena Williams already has seven Aussie titles, and is a strong contender to add another after skipping her title defense in 2018 while she was on leave after having a baby. Now seeded 16th, Williams was drawn into the same section Thursday as No. 1-ranked Simona Halep, the runner-up here last year. The pair could meet in the fourth round.

The 31-year-old Tebow posted photos of himself down on one knee and 23-year-old Nel-Peters wearing an engagement ring.

     Tebow currently plays professional baseball in the New York Mets organization. He is also a college football analyst for the SEC Network.
