Wednesday's Sports in Brief

The Associated Press Published:

Players arrested: Four members of TCU's football team were among 17 students at the school arrested as part of a six-month drug sting.

Arrest warrants painted a startling picture of the Horned Frogs, with a handful of players who allegedly arranged marijuana sales after class or around practice and who told police that most of the team had failed a surprise drug test just two weeks ago.

According to police, linebacker Tanner Brock, the leading tackler two seasons ago; defensive tackle D.J. Yendrey; cornerback Devin Johnson; and offensive lineman Ty Hornsold sold undercover officers marijuana during the season and as recently as last week.

Contract extension: Reigning AL manager of the year Joe Maddon agreed to a three-year contract extension that could keep him in Tampa Bay's dugout through 2015.

Player of the month: Landon Donovan has been picked as Everton's player of the month for January for the second time in three years.

The American midfielder, on his second short-term loan to the Toffees from the Los Angeles Galaxy, assisted on five of Everton's eight goals in January. He added another assist last weekend.
