  The top-rated player in Alabama's 2018 recruiting class is looking to transfer to a fifth different school. Eyabi Okie, who was known as Eyabi Anoma when he signed with Alabama as a five-star recruit more than five years ago, entered the NCAA transfer portal on Thursday, On3 Sports and the Detroit Free Press reported. Okie is a graduate transfer. Okie was the No. 4-rated player nationally in 247 Sports' composite when he signed with Alabama on Dec. 20, 2017.

He played in 12 games as a freshman in 2018, earning all-freshman SEC honors after recording two tackles for a loss. But Okie was later suspended by Alabama and entered the transfer portal before the 2019 season, landing that season at Houston. But Houston dismissed him after the 2019 season and, after sitting out the 2020 season, he later joined Tennessee-Martin for the 2021 season. Okie transferred again to Michigan before the 2022 season, changing his last name to honor his mother. He finished this season with 2.5 sacks for the Wolverines. - Birmingham News

  Chris Reynolds matched a career best with five touchdown passes and Charlotte, after firing its previous head coach six days ago, cruised to a 56-23 victory over Rice on Saturday to snap a four-game losing streak.

  Charlotte fired coach Will Healy on Sunday after the 49ers fell to 1-7 in their final season as a member of Conference USA. "We are grateful to Will Healy for the incredible energy and enthusiasm he brought to our program," said Charlotte 49ers athletic director Mike Hill. "He made an impact here that will never be forgotten. Sadly, however, our on-field results have not met expectations. Will and his family are special people and we wish them the best." Healy, one of the youngest head coaches in major college football at 37, fell to 15-24 in four seasons at Charlotte after losing 34-15 to Florida International on Saturday. That dropped the 49ers into last place in C-USA.

Offensive line coach Pete Rossomando was elevated to interim head coach. Rossomando is in his second season with the 49ers. He has previous head coaching experience at New Haven and Central Connecticut State and was named the NCAA Div. II National Coach of the Year following the 2012 season at New Haven. He was a finalist for the Eddie Robinson FCS Coach of the Year Award in 2017 while at Central Connecticut State. Charlotte is set to make a jump up in competition next season when it joins the American Athletic Conference along with five other C-USA schools. Healy was the youngest head coach in FBS when he was hired by Charlotte in 2019 after three years at Austin Peay that included an FCS playoff appearance in 2017. He led Charlotte to a bowl game in his first season, finishing 7-6. The 49ers are 8-18 since. Healy is the sixth major college coach fired this season, but first outside the Power Five conferences. The 49ers are at Rice on Saturday. - AP College Football
