Williams-Renault Formula One -- Signed Brazilian Ayrton Senna to team with Damon Hill. It was a move widely expected after Alain Prost retired shortly after winning his fourth world title this year.


Cleveland Indians -- Named Buddy Bell infield coach; Luis Isaac bullpen coach; Charlie Manuel hitting instructor; and Phil Regan pitching coach. Announced that first-base coach Dave Nelson and third-base coach Jeff Newman will return for the 1994 season. Named Newman assistant coach to manager Mike Hargrove.

Colorado Rockies -- Announced they will not extend a contract to OF Alex Cole, making him a free agent.

Texas Rangers -- Announced they will not exercise the 1994 contract options on P Charlie Leibrandt and former Orioles P Craig Lefferts.


Chicago Bulls -- Signed C Will Perdue (4.7 ppg, 4.0 rpg) to a multi-year contract extension.

Dallas Mavericks -- Waived G Steffond Johnson and G Tim Brooks.

Indiana Pacers -- Signed G Reggie Jordan.

Philadelphia 76ers -- Acquired G Sean Green (4.3 ppg) from the Indiana Pacers for a second-round 1994 draft choice. Waived rookie F Tony Dunkin, a four-time Big South Conference Player of the Year for Coastal Carolina University.


ACC -- Named Maryland G Cailin Mullins Women's Soccer Player of the Week. In four outings since Sept. 29, she has given up just three goals.

Marquette -- Announced it will drop its 39-year-old "Warriors" nickname by the end of the current academic year out of respect to Native Americans.

North Carolina State -- Announced that redshirt sophomore Terry Harvey has earned the starting quarterback job with his performance in the Wolfpack's come-from-behind, 36-34 win at Texas Tech.

Purdue -- Announced the resignation of defensive coordinator Moe Ankney and defensive line coach Tony Caviglia two days after a 59-56 loss to Minnesota that set a major college record for most points scored in a defeat. Named defensive backs and special teams coach Pat Henderson interim defensive coordinator and Chester Caddas defensive line coach.


NFL -- Announced it will review the series of events at the end of Sunday's Jets-Raiders game, in which the game clock froze with 32 seconds to play as Los Angeles moved to New York's 1 to set up its game-winning touchdown with four seconds left. But there isn't any action the league can take that will reverse the outcome of the 24-20 loss by the Jets.

New England Patriots -- Activated RB Burnie Leggette from the practice squad. Released CB Jerome Henderson.

New York Giants -- Activated OL Eric Moore from the exempt list. Re-signed WR Keith Crawford to the practice roster.


NHL -- Suspended Buffalo Sabres F Bob Sweeney for three games for his part in a fight against the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday. Sweeney was ejected for leaving the bench during a fight at 19:37 of the third period. Such an infraction calls for an automatic 10-game suspension, but the league chose to reduce the penalty. The team contended Sweeney was coming onto the ice for a line change and not joining the fight.

Hartford Whalers -- Agreed to terms with LW Nick Kypreos. Recalled D John Stevens from AHL Springfield.

New Jersey Devils -- Assigned F Scott Pellerin, F Brian Rolston and F Ben Hankinson to AHL Albany. Released F Janne Ojanen from Albany.
