Tar­get­ing penal­ties un­changed: The NCAA says the num­ber of en­forced tar­get­ing penal­ties in the Foot­ball Bowl Sub­di­vi­sion this sea­son was the same as in 2017, end­ing four straight years of in­creased calls.

NCAA na­tional co­or­di­na­tor of of­fi­cials Rogers Red­ding re­ported 179 en­forced calls in 817 games com­pared with 179 in 816 games last sea­son.

The fi­nal 2017 re­port orig­i­nally listed 188 en­forced calls, but Red­ding said the num­bers are some­times ad­justed after an off­sea­son re­view. The NCAA com­piles its num­bers through re­ports sub­mit­ted each week by con­fer­ences.

Mary­land: Mike Lock­sley is thrilled to be home. The Wash­ing­ton na­tive who spent two stints as a Mary­land as­sis­tant and was the Ter­rap­ins’ in­terim leader for six games in 2015 was in­tro­duced Thurs­day as the school’s full-time coach.

“This was the job I’ve cov­eted since the day I put a whis­tle around my neck as a coach,” said Lock­sley, the Alabama of­fen­sive co­or­di­na­tor, who Tues­day was named the win­ner of the Broyles Award as the na­tion’s top as­sis­tant coach. “Some peo­ple grow up want­ing to be the head coach at the Univer­sity of Alabama, Michi­gan, all the sto­ried pro­grams. For Locks, this was it.” Cal­i­for­nia: Coach Justin Wil­cox signed a new fiveyear deal to stay un­der con­tract through the 2023 sea­son. The deal adds two more years to the orig­i­nal con­tract signed in 2017. Wil­cox also gets a raise and more money for his as­sis­tant coach pool.
