**  U.C.L.A. defensive back Ishmael Adams will face three years of probation and have to take an anger management class after a fight with an Uber driver.

**  Bowling Green will pay $712,000 to former offensive lineman Cody Silk because its football coaches and medical staff allowed him to continue practicing after multiple concussions, with led to permanent brain injury.

**  Most SEC East coaches and their teams will participate in satellite camps for the first time, now that the NCAA and the conference have given their okays.
**  Florida coach Jim McElwain called the plans a “traveling show” and added, “It should be fun.”  Butch Jones of Tennessee said it’ll be a “balancing act” as to when coaches should be at camps and when they should remain on campus with the team.  Kirby Smart, the new head coach at Georgia, said it’ll be a “hectic” offseason because satellite camps are “popping up” all over very quickly.  Coaches will have to use discretion regarding where and when to go.
**  The NCAA recently rescinded a less-than-a-month-old ban on satellite camps.  The SEC’s athletic directors had voted last year to remove the restriction preventing its coaches from taking part in satellite camps if the NCAA approved them.

**  The City of Birmingham, Alabama will give $500,000 per year for the next five years to U.A.B. football, doubling its annual financial contribution to the program, as compared to what the city had donated before U.A.B. shut down football at the end of the 2014 season.
**  The Blazers plan to return to action in 2017.
