Former University of Maine guard Julie Brosseau announced Tuesday on Twitter that she has transferred to the University of Utah.

“So excited to announce that I will continue my basketball career at the University of Utah in the Pac-12,” she wrote, with a photo of Brosseau in her new uniform in Utah’s gym.

UMaine announced in late March that Brosseau, a sophomore, was planning to transfer.

Brosseau, from Repentigny, Quebec, was third in scoring last season on Maine’s NCAA tournament team. She averaged 11.3 points for the Black Bears (23-10) and was second on the team with 68 3-pointers.

Utah (18-14) lost in the second round of the WNIT.

FOOTBALL

NFL: Russ Brandon abruptly resigned his dual role as president of the NFL Buffalo Bills and NHL Buffalo Sabres in a major shake-up for the teams’ owners, Terry and Kim Pegula.

The Pegulas announced in a press release that they accepted Brandon’s resignation.

The Pegulas provided no reason for Brandon’s departure after a 20-year tenure that started with the Bills.

Oakland Raiders offensive lineman Vadal Alexander was suspended without pay for the first four games next season for a violation of the league policy on performance-enhancing drugs.

 After completing the draft without a fullback on their roster, the Atlanta Falcons added two candidates who were undrafted college free agents.
