GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida has hired Torrian Gray as its cornerbacks coach, bringing him back to Gainesville to replace Charlton Warren.
Warren left the Gators to take a similar position at rival Georgia.
Gray, who has 19 years of coaching experience, worked at Florida during the 2016 season. He spent the last two years with the NFL's Washington Redskins before being fired in January.
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Democrat Jacky Rosen and Republican Dean Heller made a final push on opposite ends of Nevada Friday to mobilize voters on the last day of early voting in their razor-thin contest for U.S. Senate
The race could help Democrats find a narrow path to taking power, and Heller is considered uniquely vulnerable this year.
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel and singer Brandon Flowers of the Las Vegas-based band The Killers will headline a Friday night rally for U.S. Senate candidate Jacky Rosen in Las Vegas.

The Killers, "Wonderful Wonderful " (Island)
Don't be fooled by the title of The Killers' latest CD. Things aren't "Wonderful" — much less "Wonderful Wonderful." This may be the most misleading album title since Pink Floyd's "A Collection of Great Dance Songs."

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Melvin Gordon ran and ran and ran some more for the San Diego Chargers, not stopping until he'd gotten a career-high 196 yards.
His 1-yard touchdown run in the third quarter was the go-ahead score in the San Diego Charges' 43-35 victory Sunday against Marcus Mariota and the Tennessee Titans, who still haven't won in San Diego since 1990.
Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is inactive for Sunday's game against New England, a week after injuring his left knee in a loss to Miami.
The Steelers are 11-9 in games Roethlisberger hasn't started during his career, all nine losses by 10 points or fewer.

SAN DIEGO - The Southern drawl delivered a prediction.
"I guarantee you we won't be 4-12 again,'' Philip Rivers said.
In these political times, be careful of people behind podiums making promises. But Rivers, the man leading the Chargers' ticket, might be on to something after the franchise's worst season since 2003.
