Sports briefs: Bryant lawsuit is resolved

Former 49ers receiver Antonio Bryant has come to an agreement over issues regarding whether he was subject to the NFL’s drug testing program while he is a free agent. Bryant filed a lawsuit against the NFL in October asking the league to no longer ask him to submit to a urinalysis. Court documents filed Tuesday said Bryant and the NFL had resolved issues raised in the lawsuit.

Petrino to Arkansas

When the first major event to happen under your watch is your franchise quarterback being investigated for illegal dogfighting, you know your tenure is jinxed. After just 13 games, Bobby Petrino has resigned as coach of the Atlanta Falcons. Petrino, who coached at Louisville before joining the Falcons for a five-year, $24 million contract, is headed back to college, having already accepted the Arkansas job. The Falcons did not announce who would take over Petrino’s job, although defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer and offensive coordinator Hue Jackson are the primary contenders. Petrino is the first major casualty from the Michael Vick case, which resulted in the quarterback being sentenced to 23 months in prison Monday.
