LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — The winter meetings got busy with a three-team trade that sent slugger Mark Trumbo to Arizona, and Oakland dealt pitcher Brett Anderson to Colorado.

Halfway through the four-day swap session, the 15-foot-wide dais at the Dolphin Hotel near Walt Disney World has been used for three announcements involving player transactions — triple the total of last year's inert meetings in Nashville, Tenn.

In the big deal of the day, the Chicago White Sox acquired outfielder Adam Eaton from Arizona for left-hander Hector Santiago, and the Diamondbacks then sent Santiago and left-hander Tyler Skaggs to the Angels for Trumbo. Arizona also will receive a player to be named or cash from each of the other teams.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas Athletic Director Steve Patterson says no decision has been made about the future of Longhorns coach Mack Brown.

Texas released a statement by Patterson several hours after Orangebloods.com reported, citing two unidentified sources, that Brown will announce he is stepping down by week's end.

"We continue to discuss the future of Texas Football," Patterson said. "Mack Brown has not resigned. And, no decisions have been made."

Joe Jamail, Brown's longtime friend and attorney, told The Associated Press: "Mack Brown has not resigned." He says Brown's future with Texas is still up to the coach.

NEW YORK (AP) — Tommie Frazier waited a couple years longer than many Nebraska fans felt was appropriate to get into the College Football Hall of Fame.

Being snubbed didn't bother Touchdown Tommie. He's just glad the call finally came and that so many appreciated his play.

Frazier was one of 12 former players who were inducted by the National Football Foundation in the College Hall of Fame in New York.

Also among the inductees were Heisman Trophy winners Vinny Testaverde, Danny Wuerffel and Ron Dayne and former coaches Wayne Hardin of Temple and Navy and Bill McCartney of Colorado.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Dave Clawson seems like a natural fit for Wake Forest.

Clawson is known as a program-builder — and after five straight losing seasons, the Demon Deacons sure could use a few tweaks.

Clawson called it "truly a dream come true" to be introduced as Wake Forest's coach.

His hiring caps a weeklong search for Jim Grobe's replacement. Grobe stepped down Dec. 2 after a 13-year stay that included the best three-year run in school history.

Clawson called Wake Forest "a special place" and says when the job came open last week, he hoped to be considered for it.

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi football coach Hugh Freeze has a new contract that includes a one-year extension through 2017 and a raise to $3 million per season.

Freeze's four-year contract is the longest allowed by Mississippi state law. His base salary was $2 million this season.

Ole Miss has a 7-5 record and accepted an invitation to the Music City Bowl in Nashville, Tenn., where it will play Georgia Tech on Dec. 30.

Freeze's new contract includes an automatic $150,000 raise for each upcoming season. Also, the salary pool for the Ole Miss football staff will increase by $400,000.
