    LOS ANGELES — For years, Chip Kelly's assistant coaches sounded a we'll-get-back-to-you refrain with high school recruits as part of an agonizing, slow-speed pursuit. The staff's reluctance to pounce on prospects was among the reasons UCLA ranked last in the nation in scholarship offers and built little buzz in recruiting circles, with the results to match. Scott Taylor was among the last ...

      FORT WORTH, Texas — Bill Montigel now joins Bill Belichick and Wade Phillips as examples of coaches who are considered “too old” to do their job when all they want to do is to just keep coaching. And yet none of the above is quite old enough to be President of the United States. Among the many differences between the former TCU men’s golf coach and the former NFL head football coaches, only ...

        In an ever changing college landscape, it’s become rare to see a blue-chip recruit actually redshirt and decide to stick around at his program. The allure of playing time and quick money from name, image and likeness is always tempting for any athlete. But Texas Christian University redshirt freshman Isaiah Manning has always marched to the beat of his own drum. It wasn’t easy redshirting for ...

        BOONE, N.C. — In North Carolina’s mountains, a football coach named Jerry Moore led Appalachian State to new heights two decades ago. Now 84, Moore coached the Mountaineers from 1989-2012 and built a dynasty. In 2005, 2006 and 2007, he directed the Mountaineers all the way to the top of the mountain, winning three straight national titles at the FCS level. Those were the first three NCAA ...

        There are two lessons: 1. They will all leave. All of them. Coaches and players are effectively on one-year contracts, so plan accordingly. 2. The spirit of DeLoss Dodds has infiltrated the body of Chris Del Conte. The last week of June of 2024 will long be remembered as a “high point” in the love affair between the University of Texas and Texas A&M; when Bevo nabbed the Reveille’s baseball ...

        LAWRENCE, Kan. — Wednesday was a momentous day for Oscar-winning filmmaker Kevin Willmott, whose stirring and significant latest film, “The Heroic True-Life Adventures of Alvin Brooks,” premiered at the Screenland Armour as part of the Juneteenth Film Festival. The documentary about the 92-year-old civil rights icon who embodies the best of us is indeed as Willmott described it in an interview ...

        ATLANTA — The 1994 World Cup didn’t swing by Atlanta. Nine U.S. cities — New York, L.A., D.C., San Francisco, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Orlando, Detroit — got games. We did not. It was no great loss. That World Cup set records for attendance, but the event itself stirs no fond memories. The final ended when Roberto Baggio — the Divine Ponytail — sent his penalty into the Rose Bowl stands. It ...

        PITTSBURGH — I'm as crotchety and stuck in my ways as anyone. I mean, I was already an old man yelling at clouds in about 1990 and have always been somewhat of a traditionalist when it comes to sports. But even I have been able to adapt and accept the new world of college athletics — the transfer portal, NIL, the stipends and salaries, the conference realignments, the football playoffs and ...

        CLEVELAND — Big-league baseball was always the goal, sure. But Luke Raley figured that was a longshot. When he was playing ball at nearby Lake Erie College, he studied special education and planned to pursue a career as a teacher or guidance counselor. "Honestly, when I went to a small Division II school, I didn't see this as my future," the Seattle Mariners outfielder said Wednesday ...
