There comes a moment in every fan’s life when they realize that certain power programs’ claims that they can’t afford to pay players don’t stand up. I hope this is someone’s moment!
After three mediocre-declining-to-bad seasons behind the bench, legendary goaltender is out as Colorado Avalanche head coach and VP of hockey operations. And there’s a lot noteworthy about how this news broke, even independent of the content of Roy’s statement. (But the content is pretty telling too!)
This might be counterintuitive, but I wish the Kings had been a little better or a lot worse. They won just few enough games to not matter, and did so boringly, and that’s a shame: This was one of the most dysfunctional seasons in recent memory, and even though everyone knew it, I’m not sure it gets the historical…
Chris Bates, the Princeton men’s lacrosse coach who elbowed a Brown player during a game Saturday, has been fired. [NJ.com]
Princeton men’s lacrosse head coach Chris Bates was placed on administrative leave after he bumped an opposing player with his shoulder during Saturday’s game against Brown.
The NFL is in Boca Raton this week for its annual meetings, and that means it’s time for the head coaches to get together for their group photo. (Click here for full resolution.) I don’t recognize a lot of these guys! But that’s always how it is with new coaches: you can’t truly get to know their faces until you see…
Normally the owners of OHL teams wouldn’t be of note, but Flint Firebirds owner Rolf Nilsen’s handling of his team has been so poor that the league stepped in and took control away from him.
Former NHL enforcer Zenon Konopka played parts of two seasons in Minnesota under coach Mike Yeo, and by all accounts they weren’t pleasant ones for either man. So take that into account when Konopka, with an assist from Hoppy Konopka, goes public with a call for Yeo’s ouster.
NFL teams are in the process of filling out their coaching staffs, and barring a catastrophe, it appears that Jim Tomsula won’t be a head coach next season. So, uh, where’s he going?
The Browns will make Hue Jackson their new head coach. The former Bengals offensive coordinator will be Cleveland’s fifth head coach since 2009. According to Mike Silver, the team lured Jackson like a Venus flytrap attracting an insect.
Old Dominion came away from Ruston tonight with a shocking upset win over Louisiana Tech—the Monarchs’ first road win of the season, and the Bulldogs’ first home loss since 2013. ODU coach Jeff Jones clearly saw someone after the game who needed a celebratory crotchpalm.
Chuck Pagano was apparently feeling—what should we call it? Philosophical? Resigned? Fatalist? Realistic? With the Colts struggling toward the playoffs and his job security very much in question, Indy’s head coach offered up the one thing anyone can be sure of in this crazy world of ours: our employers are not going…
An unprecedented and frankly offensive thing happened today: a coach was asked questions about the team he’s playing, by reporters who cover that team.
All those Blue Jackets players shouldering the blame for their historically woeful start? All that about Columbus seeking to make a trade before considering a coaching change? Everything about John Tortorella not having been contacted by struggling teams? Hooey. Todd Richards has been fired, and Torts is back, baby!
It is a testament to the Washington Nationals’ dysfunction that the dugout fight between Jonathan Papelbon and Bryce Harper almost made sense compared to everything that came after. A team’s for-hire closer trying to choke the league MVP is one thing, but it’s absolutely inexplicable that manager Matt Williams then…
Jim McElwain says he regrets tearing into junior RB Kelvin Taylor on the sideline after Taylor drew a penalty for a “throat slash” touchdown celebration gesture late in Florida’s 31-24 win over East Carolina on Saturday, saying he’s already heard from his 94-year-old mother that it wasn’t right.
Kelvin Taylor earned a taunting penalty for doing a throat slash after scoring against East Carolina. Gators coach Jim McElwain was not happy.
