Aggies athletics to honor late Bush

COLLEGE STATION, Texas — All of Texas A&M’s teams will begin wearing helmet decals or uniform patches to honor former President George H.W. Bush.

Bush, who died on Friday at 94, was a frequent visitor to Aggie sporting events. His presidential library is located at Texas A&M and he’ll be buried there on Thursday.

The tribute patch will first be worn by the men’s and women’s basketball teams during their games. The patch, approved by the family, is based on the shield from the official President Bush 41 logo. It will be in the school’s colors of maroon and white.

The football team will wear the design as a helmet decal when it meets North Carolina State in the Gator Bowl Dec. 31.

The various Texas A&M’s teams will wear the uniform patch for the rest of the school year.

Ferris State dismisses football player

BIG RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — Ferris State University says a football player who allegedly struck a woman at an off-campus apartment has been dismissed from the team.

The school didn’t release the player’s name. It says the alleged assault happened over the weekend and was being investigated by the Mecosta County sheriff’s office.

The county prosecutor’s office was expected to review the case for possible charges.

The statement says the player has been dismissed from the football program and will be subject to university investigation for possible violations of the student code. The school says the player didn’t travel with the team last weekend for its Division II quarterfinal win. The team is preparing to play in Saturday’s Division II semifinals.

Ohio State’s Meyer to retire after Rose Bowl

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Urban Meyer, the coach who won three national football championships and was suspended for three games this season for his handling of domestic violence allegations against a now-fired assistant, will retire after Ohio State plays in the Rose Bowl.

The university announced the decision Tuesday but did not say why he was leaving after seven years at the Big Ten school, where he has an 82-9 record. But the 54-year-old coach has previously cited health concerns. He has a cyst in his brain that causes severe headaches.

A news conference was scheduled for Tuesday during which Meyer is to announce his retirement, with co-offensive coordinator Ryan Day appointed the team’s 25th head coach.

Meyer guided Ohio State to the national championship in 2014 after doing so at Florida in 2006 and 2008.

He has shown obvious effects of pain on the sideline this season.

He also was reproached for what some saw as overly lax treatment of Zach Smith, the assistant coach who was accused
