SID’s JOTTINGS

 

• Former Timberwolves forward Derrick Williams has shown some improvement with increased playing time with the Sacramento Kings. He averaged 14.7 minutes with the Wolves in his 11 games here this season and has averaged 26.5 in 40 games with the Kings going into Saturday. His points per game have gone from 4.9 to 9.8, his rebounds from 2.4 to 4.7 and his shooting percentage from 35.2 to 45.8 percent.

 

• Gophers track and field coach Steve Plasencia announced three more recruits for the spring season. They are Bloomington Jefferson’s Matt Rosen, the Minnesota state champion in the 800 meters; Brookfield (Wis.) East’s Glen Harold, the top pole vaulter in Wisconsin at 15 feet, 9 inches; and Pequot Lakes’ Tyler Tappe, the Minnesota state champion in the pole vault.

 

• Former Vikings quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson has once again signed with the San Francisco 49ers, this time to their 90-man roster for 2014. Thompson was claimed by the 49ers last season after the Vikings picked up Josh Freeman.

 

• Brooks Bollinger, the former Wisconsin and Vikings quarterback and Hill-Murray High School football coach, has resigned from the University of Pittsburgh coaching staff, where he was working under former Badgers assistant Paul Chryst for the past two seasons. Bollinger resigned to “pursue non-coaching opportunities,” and Chryst will take over QB coaching duties.

 

• When Rutgers joins the Big Ten for football next season, there will be some familiar names on the coaching staff. Norries Wilson, who was a two-year starter for the Gophers in football and also wrestled here and worked as a graduate assistant in 1989, is the team’s running backs coach. And Mitch Browning, the team’s offensive line coach, was here as a co-offensive coordinator, tight ends and offensive line coach from 1997 to 2006.
