RILEY NOT READY TO QUIT COACHING YET: Pat Riley has no definitive plans to go anywhere, dismissing published reports that he was leaning toward vacating his coaching role with the Miami Heat after the season to focus on his front-office duties.

Riley said before Miami's game Wednesday night against Milwaukee that he was being philosophical when talking about the dual roles he holds and potentially stepping aside.

The 62-year-old Riley is under contract through 2009-10.


TV ANALYST SUSPENDED FOR REMARK: Golf Channel suspended anchor Kelly Tilghman for two weeks on Wednesday for saying last week that young players who wanted to challenge Tiger Woods should "lynch him in a back alley."

Tilghman was laughing during the exchange Friday with analyst Nick Faldo at the Mercedes-Benz Championship, and Woods' agent at IMG said he didn't think there was any ill intent.
