Furman coach on Vanderbilt's short list

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. -- Bobby Johnson's coaching career at Furman could be over as soon as Friday night. Johnson is a likely candidate to replace Woody Widenhofer as the head football coach at Vanderbilt. Furman ends its season here Friday against Montana for the I-AA national championship.

Clark said Thursday that if there would be a coaching change it wouldn't take place until after Furman's game.

College football notes - Josh Booty wants to go back to school

MIAMI - Former first-round draft pick Josh Booty wants out of his contract with the Florida Marlins so he can play football at Louisiana State next fall. But the Marlins aren't inclined to let Booty go. "Josh made a commitment to us to play baseball," Marlins general manager Dave Dombrowski said. "At this point we are still in the belief that he still is committed to playing for us." For the Marlins to even consider releasing Booty, he would have to repay his then-record $1.6 million signing bonus from 1994. And that's a problem for him.
