College Football • Air Force quarterback Jaleel Awini has been suspended from the Falcons football team.

The Academy said Wednesday that Awini "is no longer a cadet in good standing and is not allowed to represent the Academy in any outside activities, effective immediately."

There was no indication of what got Awini in trouble. The news release added only this: "All cadets are held to the same high standards — honor, physical fitness, academics and military aptitude — and each case is handled on its own individual merits. Holding each cadet to these high standards promotes good order and discipline throughout the institution."

Awini had taken over as the Falcons' starting QB after Kale Pearson hurt a knee in the opener. They won that game, against Colgate, but have lost three straight since.

Pistons add Wallace as player development coach

NBA • Former Detroit star Rasheed Wallace rejoined the Pistons on Wednesday as a player development coach.

The team also added Henry Bibby and Maz Trakh as assistant coaches.

Wallace spent five seasons with Detroit. He helped the Pistons to the 2004 championship and averaged more than 14 points in his career. He joins Bernard Smith on the player development staff.

He finished his career last season with New York.

Bibby spent the past five seasons on the Memphis Grizzlies' coaching staff and was an assistant for the Philadelphia 76ers under current Pistons head coach Maurice Cheeks.
