Please join us in praying for the family of Dave Grosz, who spent 20 years as an assistant at Cal Poly (FCS). Coach Grosz, who coached the running backs, quarterbacks, and served as offensive coordinator during his time with the program, was 80 years old.

Dallas Cowboys: A week after COO Stephen Jones said the Cowboys' staff isn't coaching for their jobs, Jerry Jones has shot down rumors of an extension for head coach Jason Garrett. After columnist Jeff Sullivan tweeted Monday, "Sounds like another extension could be signed soon he's not going anywhere," Jones told 105.3 The Fan via the Dallas Morning News, "I don't know where Jeff is getting his information. He's pulling one out of the air there as far as any knowledge. My response should not in any way indicate that I'm thinking about it or whether it's going to be there, it's just not something that I would have visited with anybody about, least of all Jeff." Garrett signed a 5-year, $30 million extension after the 2014 season.

Auburn: Brandon Marcello, who covers Auburn for 24/7, said today on Finebaum's show, "I'm not ruling out a change at the end of the season even though he (Malzahn) has a contract that has at least $38 million in buyout money. From what I've been told, there's not much concern there when it comes to the money." Um, what????

Rhodes College (D-III - TN): AD Portia Hoeg is no longer at Rhodes, sources tells FootballScoop. Matt Dean has been appointed interim AD.

Denver Broncos: The Broncos staff "could be on the road to a coaching change" writes Sam Farmer of the LA Times. Vance Joseph's squad has lost four in a row and allowed consecutive 200 yard rushers, prompting John Elway to say this defense has gotten "very soft". Joseph, when asked my reporters if he felt he was fighting for his job responded, "Absolutely."
