Harbaugh calls NCAA incompetent

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh fired back at the NCAA, saying "the incompetence of the NCAA has reared its ugly head yet again" in a story published Tuesday by Sports Illustrated.

Harbaugh was reacting to Friday's decision that bars football coaches from having camps or clinics away from campus or facilities that schools regularly use for practice or games.

The NCAA sided with a proposal by the SEC and ACC to stop Harbaugh's so-called satellite camps.

Harbaugh, whose tour of the South last year created a stir, had stops lined up in Florida and Alabama this year. Among the events eliminated by the ruling is a one-day camp Harbaugh and USF's Willie Taggart planned for June 4 on the Bulls' campus.

"This is going to affect thousands and thousands of people," Harbaugh said. "I suggest we drop the term 'student-athlete' for consistency."

NEW SWINNEY DEAL: Clemson football coach Dabo Swinney received a $1.1 million raise for next season in a reworked contract that was approved by the board of trustees. Swinney will make $4.55 million in 2016, an increase from the $3.45 million he was scheduled to make under his agreement from January 2014.

GEORGIA: Freshman football players Julian Rochester and Chad Clay were each charged with two felonies related to shooting and possessing a BB gun in their residence hall on campus. Their attorney said they were apparently firing at plastic cups in their dorm room with a BB gun, which left marks on the door and in other areas of the room. Police said they caused $1,000 in damages.

Basketball

draft updates: Michigan State forward Deyonta Davis declared for the NBA draft. The projected first-round pick is Tom Izzo's first one-and-done player in 15 years, since Zach Randolph. Players declaring for the draft but not hiring agents to keep the option to return to their college teams: Indiana junior forward Troy Williams, Notre Dame junior forward V.J. Beachem and Arkansas junior center Moses Kingsley.

DUKE WOMEN: The school said its human resources department is reviewing the program, but declined comment on the reason for the review. Two players, including leading scorer and rebounder Azura Stevens, left the team after this season, and another player left in the middle of last season.
