Barnett, accepting a $3-million settlement, said the decision was made by Athletic Director Mike Bohn. "In the last 24 hours, Mike has made a decision to change the football coach at the University of Colorado," he said.

The Olympic tournament is over for Czech goaltender Dominik Hasek, who strained a groin muscle while making a save in the first period of his team's opener Wednesday. The team's training staff recommended that Hasek not play again here and repeated that advice to forward Patrik Elias, who suffered a rib injury in the first game. Hasek, 41, was the key to the Czech Republic's triumph in 1998, the first Olympics in which NHL players were allowed to represent their homelands.

Michelle Kwan won't perform her short and long program without a break. She won't be scored according to figure skating's new Code of Points. And Emily Hughes, who finished third at last week's U.S. championships, apparently won't fight U.S. Figure Skating's decision to bump her off the Turin Olympic team in favor of Kwan. At least, as of Sunday night Hughes had not notified the U.S. Olympic Committee that she might file a grievance, a USOC spokesman said.
