Florida Atlantic announced Gary Partridge as head coach.

The Owls dismissed former coach Carl Pelini in October. A press conference to announce the news of Partridge's hiring is scheduled for Tuesday. Partridge, who has never been a head coach, was Arkansas' defensive coordinator in 2013. Arkansas State, Army, Bowling Green and Texas still have head coaching vacancies in the FBS.

NFL.com's Gil Brandt reports former FAU WR Duron Carter worked out for the Miami Dolphins.

Brandt recently tweeted that Carter should be a priority free agent following the conclusion of the draft. He has a "similar speed (4.58), possession type," to his father, Cris, according to Brandt. We don't expect Carter to get drafted because of his reported poor attitude. He will have to come a long way to succeed in the NFL.

After watching tape on former FAU WR Duron Carter, NFL.com's Gil Brandt considers the prospect a priority free agent.

Brandt tweeted that Duron reminds him a lot of his father, Cris. "Similar speed (4.58), possession type," Brandt writes. We don;t believe Carter will be drafted, and his attitude will have to be top notch to stick on an NFL roster, something that has been a major issue in the past.

After leaving the FAU football program, junior WR Duron Carter has entered April's NFL Draft.

Duron, the son of Cris Carter, has chosen an odd collegiate path, going from Ohio State to Alabama to FAU, with neither landing spot offering much hope in terms of success. We doubt he is selected during April's Draft.

Junior WR Duron Carter, son of NFL great Cris, has left the FAU football program and will likely enter April's NFL Draft.

Carter was not granted permission by the NCAA to play this season after transferring from Alabama. He actually began his career at Ohio State, but Carter never found a fit at any of the three schools. The junior has put zeros up the last two years and focused on academics the final few weeks of this season.

FAU junior WR Drun Carter's hardship waiver was denied by the NCAA and he will not be eligible to play during the 2012 season.

Carter will still practice with the team and will be eligible to play in 2013, if he lasts that long. Chris' son has had a tumultuous collegiate career, starting at Ohio State, then to Alabama, and now he will stand on the sidelines at FAU where he was involved in multiple arguments with coaches during and after practice during preseason workouts.

FAU sophomore WR William Dukes may miss Saturday's game against Alabama with a leg injury.

Dukes caught five passes for 98 yards last weekend against Georgia before leaving with the injury. "Both of them are short term," head coach Carl Pelini said. "I don't know about this week, but neither of them have any kind of fracture." Pelini is also referring to backup quarterback Stephen Curtis in that statement.

Alabama junior WR transfer Duron Carter was kicked out of FAU's practice on Monday while his father, Chris, watched.

Carter was in the news earlier this weekend after he spent a majority of practice engaging in a heated conversation with his position coach. Obviously Chris' son has not put together a steady collegiate career, already transferring from top programs like Ohio State and Alabama.

Junior WR Duron Carter, son of Chris Carter, wants to play at FAU in 2012 but has yet to be admitted by the school.

Carter is also in the process of petitioning the NCAA for a transfer waiver, which would prevent him from being forced to redshirt the 2012 season. The college path has had many stops for Carter thus far, starting at Ohio State, followed by a stop at a community college, and finally Alabama where academic issues prohibited him from touching the field.

Suspended Alabama receiver Duron Carter suggested via social media that he might be around this spring.

The son of former NFL star receiver Cris Carter has not caught a pass in a major-college game since 2009. He was with his father’s alma mater, Ohio State, that year and caught 13 passes for 176 yards. He left the Buckeyes following that season -- his only one in Columbus -- due to academic issues. He went the community college route for a year before finding his way to Tuscaloosa, where academic concerns continued to plague him. If he can play, he might have a shot at contributing as the Tide’s top two wide receivers from a year ago (Marquis Maze and Darius Hanks) have departed.

Florida Atlantic wide receiver Avery Holley had not gone over 100 yards receiving in his career until he did during the final game of his college career against Troy.  Holley caught four passes for 129 yards and a touchdown.

The Owls offense has been terrible since Rusty Smith headed to the NFL and is a fantasy wasteland for next year.

Florida Atlantic wide receiver Lester Jean had a field day against the Middle Tennessee secondary as he caught eight passes for 100 yards and two touchdowns.

Jean has been a solid performer despite subpar quarterback play.

Florida Atlantic receiver Lester Jean was once again the top target of quarterback Jeff Van Camp as he caught eight passes for 114 yards and a touchdown against FIU.  To put it into perspective, nobody else on the team had more than two catches.

Jean is a decent WR4 in deep leagues, but he needs to find the endzone a bit more.

FAU running back Alfred Morris put up big numbers against Louisiana-Monroe; the bruising back carried the ball 30 times for 153 yards and two touchdowns as the Owls lost to the Warhawks.

Morris is the type of back that can handle that many carries and if he continues to see workhorse-like carries you may want to snag him.
