“He wants to stick with coach Grantham and his defensive system,” Woodrow Clemons said regarding the former Georgia defensive coordinator.
Harvey-Clemons was suspended for the opener last season for violating Georgia’s drug policy and was serving a four-game suspension when he was dismissed from the team in February. He will sit out this coming season and have two years of eligibility remaining.
MISSOURI: Police say they won’t make any arrests in a suspected burglary involving wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham, in part because of reluctant witnesses who fear retaliation and harassment for bringing a criminal complaint.
MINNESOTA MANKATO: An arbitrator has found that Minnesota State University, Mankato, had no grounds to fire head coach Todd Hoffner last May and has ordered that the university immediately reinstate him.
Hoffner, who was recently named head coach at Minot State, is considering whether or not he will return to Mankato, said attorney Jim Fleming.
Hoffner, 47, was arrested in 2012 and charged with two counts of child pornography after university staff found images of his naked children on a work-issued cellphone.
But a judge dismissed the charges against Hoffner three months after his arrest, saying the videos on his phone depicted only children acting playful after a bath.

POLICE REPORT: Three NFL players are named in a police report involving a woman who passed out in a hotel and later woke up in a hospital not knowing how she got there, though no one has been charged with a crime, authorities said Thursday.
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and wide receiver Quinton Patton, and Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette, were with the woman at a Miami hotel where Lockette lives, according to the Miami Police Department report.
The account of the woman is described in the report:
The woman mixed drinks and gave the men shots, and the men told her “in order to drink the shots she had to ‘hit’ the bong which contained marijuana.”
The woman began feeling light-headed and went to lie down in a bedroom. Kaepernick came into the room, began kissing her and undressed her. The woman told police that they did not have sex, and that Kaepernick left the room.
A few minutes later, the woman told police, the other two men “peeked” inside. She said to them, “What are you doing? Where is Colin? Get out.”
The report says the woman does not remember anything after that.
