After 571 wins, three Final Four appearances, and a ground-up rebuild of a once-moribund basketball program, Steve Fisher has retired from college basketball. Fisher has been the head coach of the San Diego State Aztecs since 1999, and his longtime lead assistant Brian Dutcher will take over for Fisher next year, per…
What I do at the middle school is generously called cross country coaching. To the untrained eye, our program looks a lot like goofing around, like BS, like a waste of time. I’m pretty lucky to be able to pull this off.
We all know of Appalachian State for one reason, and as the fates would have it, they played Tennessee nine years to the day of the upset that turned the school into as household a name as any then-FCS program could imagine. App State almost certainly could have earned another myth-making win last night, had their own…
According to The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski, LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers have signed Tyronn Lue to a five-year extension to serve as head coach.
The Los Angeles Lakers have hired former Lakers player and current top Golden State Warriors assistant Luke Walton as their next head coach, the team announced tonight.
The Minnesota Timberwolves have been flirting with mere mediocrity since Kevin Garnett left town nearly a decade ago. Their highest finish in the Western Conference in the past ten years was a tenth place in 2014, after which they traded Kevin Love and won 16 games the next season.
Here’s a fun, unedited moment from inside the Houston Rockets huddle:
Ohio State defensive coordinator Chris Ash has been hired to be the new head coach at Rutgers, and he wants everyone to know how excited he is about the new job:
According to numerous reports, what has been rumored for days has come true: Shaka Smart is leaving VCU to become the University of Texas’s next head basketball coach.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the San Francisco 49ers are about to make defensive line coach Jim Tomsula the new head coach of the team. Feel free to pretend like you know all about Jim Tomsula and are therefore capable of determining whether this is a good or bad move.
Well, that escalated quickly. Over the weekend, reports about Brooklyn Nets head coach Jason Kidd's unhappiness with his employers began to surface, along with talk that the first-year head coach was looking to escape to Milwaukee. Now it's being reported that Kidd has gotten his wish.
Do you pay someone money to help you with "fitness" in some way? Let me ask you a personal question: Does he or she suck? Oh it is quite likely, yes.
Sunderland manager Paolo "I'm Not A Fascist" Di Canio was fired on Sunday, just 13 games into his first coaching job in the Premier League. He went out with a bang, though, as he engaged in a very odd confrontation with Sunderland fans after a 3-0 loss to West Brom on Saturday.
Whatever, it's just summer league. A seasoned coach like Jason Kidd probably doesn't even need to be there.
Rutgers gave athletic director Tim Pernetti the boot on Friday after Mike "50 Hot Ones Comin' At Ya!" Rice was shitcanned for turning basketball practice into his own dodgeball refresher course. But because the only thing he did that was truly anathema to the big-time sports hivemind was to get caught, Rice remains…
Yesterday we lauded San Diego State's Rocky Long for potentially eschewing the kick (field goals or punts) in fourth-down situations, a strategic move that's become something of a totem in the advanced football stats discussion. Today, kind of the opposite: it seems college coaches are lining up to imitate the…
We've already told you about Jerry Sandusky's attempt last year to become a volunteer assistant coach at D-III Juniata College in central Pennsylvania. His effort was thwarted when a background check revealed the inconvenient detail that he was under investigation for something. And even though the check did not…
Believe it or not, there was a logic behind pairing no-name, unassuming Erik Spoelstra with the great collection of free agent talent basketball's ever seen. But by launching a day's headlines worth of "crying" stories, then keeping it in the news by backtracking, he's blown that logic to hell.
