Highland Park Department of Public Safety(HIGHLAND PARK, Texas) -- Former NFL quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel turned himself in for booking on Wednesday and posted bond Wednesday, and appeared in court Thursday in a domestic violence case.

Manziel, 23, was charged with family violence assault by a grand jury last week. He had previously been accused of accosting and striking an ex-girlfriend in a January incident. He faces up to one year in jail and a $4,000 fine.

The 23-year-old is appeared before a Dallas judge Thursday morning.

Manziel was polite as a judge set the conditions for his bail. He will not be allowed to contact his ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley in any way, and he cannot be near or possess firearms.

Manziel's attorney Jim Darnell said in a statement that Manziel "has, over the last 24 hours, fulfilled all the current requirements of the court. He looks forward to defending himself against the misdemeanor allegation and focusing on the next phases of his life, both personally and professionally.”

Manziel became the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy, given to college football's most outstanding player, in 2012. He was later drafted by the Cleveland Browns, and released earlier this year.

Photo by Vaughn Ridley/Getty Images(INDIANAPOLIS) -- The Indiana Pacers, fresh off their first-round playoff loss to the Toronto Raptors, announced Thursday that they would not retain head coach Frank Vogel.

"I've decided that it's time for a new voice around here," team President Larry Bird said at a Thursday press conference. He called the decision to let Vogel go "one of the toughest things I've done."

Bird did make clear that Vogel was not fired. "His contract is up and I just made the decision not to renew it."

Vogel put together a 250-181 record in five-plus seasons as the Pacers' coach. His teams made the postseason in five of six years, including two trips to the Eastern Conference Finals.

Photo by Mitchell Leff/Getty Images(HOUSTON) -- Former veteran head coach Mike D'Antoni is in the running for the Houston Rockets head coaching job, ESPN reports, while interim coach J.B. Bickerstaff has pulled himself out of consideration.

D'Antoni, notable for his up-tempo offenses with the Phoenix Suns, most recently served as an assistant coach with the Philadelphia 76ers this season. He had previously headed up unsuccessful teams with the New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers.

Bickerstaff took over the Rockets early this season following the firing of Kevin McHale. He posted a 37-34 record and got the Rockets into the postseason, but saw his team look lackluster in a first-round loss to the Golden State Warriors.

ESPN says that former Rockets head coach Jeff Van Gundy and current Indiana Pacers head coach Frank Vogel will be among the Rockets' targets. They have already spoken to Los Angeles Clippers assistant coach Sam Cassell and their own assistant coach Chris Finch. Sources tell ESPN that TNT Analyst Kenny Smith could also receive an interview for the job.

Smith and Cassell are both former Rockets players.

ESPN says Bickerstaff withdrew his name from consideration for the permanent job "when it became apparent that the Rockets were going in a different direction." The Rockets may, however, be interested in retaining Bickerstaff in another role.

Photo by Phil Ellsworth / ESPN Images(MIAMI) -- The Miami Heat announced Wednesday that forward Chris Bosh would officially sit out the remainder of their postseason run, citing the same medical situation that has seen Bosh sit since February.

"The Miami Heat and Chris Bosh announce that Chris will not be playing in the remainder of the 2016 NBA Playoffs," a statement from the team read. "The Heat, Chris, the doctors and the medical team have been working together throughout this process and will continue to do so to return Chris to playing basketball as soon as possible."

Bosh and his wife Adrienne had used social media to generate attention for his desire to return to the court. The team's announcement that he would not play came on the same day that the National Basketball Players Association asked for a meeting with the Heat over that dispute.

Bosh sat out the final months of last season with blood clots in his leg. In March, Bosh released his own statement saying that that condition had not resurfaced and that he would return this season.

Russell expressed his frustrations over Seattle's failure to bring an NBA team back to the city, according to ESPN. This comes after the City Council voted against giving part of Occidental Avenue South to an entrepreneur who wants to build an arena.

Wilson urged his Twitter followers to take a stand and start a petition.

Stockbyte/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- The National Football League is warning its players about consumption of meat in foreign countries. The organization issued a warning to players saying meats in certain countries like China and Mexico contain clenbuterol, which is banned under the league's performance-enhancing substance policy.

Clenbuterol is a muscle-building and weight-loss stimulant, according to ESPN.

The drug-testing program's administrator sent a memo to players, saying "consuming large quantities of meat while visiting those particular countries may result in a positive test."

"Players are warned to be aware of this issue when traveling to Mexico and China," the memo read. "Please take caution if you decide to consume meat, and understand that you do so at your own risk."

Several players, including Arizona Cardinals' Patrick Peterson, took to Twitter after he received the memo.

This can't be real life! #SMH #GottaGoVeganOnVacation ????

— Patrick Peterson /P2 (@RealPeterson21) May 3, 2016

The substance has reportedly caused positive tests before. Houston Texans  left tackle Duane Brown tested positive for clenbuterol last season after a trip to Mexico, sources told ESPN.
