    Getty Dan Campbell walks off the field following the team's preseason game in July 2021. The Detroit Lions are pushing toward a new season, and this year, they figure to have some solid continuity at the key spot of head coach. Unlike 2021, the Lions are not transitioning to a new boss, which is the good news for Dan Campbell. The bad news? Heading toward a new season with a rebuilt roster, the coach might not be thought of that highly against his own peers. The latest Lions news straight to your inbox!

    Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid shared some words of encouragement this week after several NFL coaches didn’t survive Black Monday, including his former offensive coordinator Matt Nagy.  The Chicago Bears announced that they would be parting ways with Nagy and general manager Ryan Pace just one day after losing to the Minnesota Vikings and finishing the season 6-11, marking the Bears' first losing season since 2017.

    The most famous fictional detectives The Best Cities for Veterans The first pink slip has been handed out. Just 12 games into the 2021-22 NHL season, Jeremy Colliton was sent packing after the Blackhawks started with a disastrous 1-9-2 record. Yep, one win. It's a bit of a shocker after the team spent the offseason trading for some high-caliber guys such as Seth Jones and 2021 Vezina Trophy winner Marc-André Fleury. But things obviously have not gone as planned and it was becoming more and more obvious a change was needed. Now comes the question: Who is next? Usually, when one guy goes the rest of NHL's general managers start evaluating how things are going with their club — and there are a number of teams underperforming.  Last season, the Canadiens' Claude Julien was the first bench boss sent packing with Geoff Ward (Flames) and Ralph Krueger (Sabres) following close behind. At the end of the season, three guys — Rick Tocchet (Coyotes), John Tortorella (Blue Jackets) and David Quinn (Rangers) — also were gone either via firing or not having...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Joe Maddon has long been a believer in the importance of rest and recharging. Each year, he provides his players with an extended mental and physical break by putting them through “American Legion Week” — that is, show up, lace up the cleats and take the field. The players can appreciate some lighter, stress-free afternoons compared to the typical daily grind of early hitting in the cage, fielding drills and rounds of batting practice. And as the playoffs near, the teams that are fresh and injury-free might be the ones with enough stamina to reach the World Series. “I know in the 80s, I’m going to go back a little bit, that’s when coaching became greater than. It was many more concepts put out there and all of a sudden we went from just showing up and taking batting practice, a couple ground balls, maybe a round of infield and going and playing your game to the point where you had to come out at 3 o’clock for extra work,” Maddon recalled. “And there are times...

The country singer defended the newest coach after she claimed he’s “jealous” of her. 1Blake was slammed for being 'petty' after he ripped the other coaches During Monday’s episode of The Voice, Blake was the only coach to not turn his chair around for contestant Raquel Trinidad. While speaking to the contestant, the 45-year-old encouraged Raquel to choose Ariana, 28, over Kelly Clarkson, 39, and John Legend, 42. After sharing that he wanted to help Raquel "choose Ariana" as her coach, Blake said: "I don't want to see you end up with two coached that are jaded and have been here for a while. "They've proven season after season that they can't win." Blake's argument seemed to make sense to Raquel, who eventually chose Ariana as her coach. While the contestant was convinced by Blake's arguments, The Voice viewers didn't find his praise for the pop star quite so charming.

    The first ax swung Wednesday morning as Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin handed head coach Claude Julien his walking papers.  Was it a surprise move? Somewhat. The Canadiens made big moves in the offseason and started the season like gangbusters. But in recent weeks that success had slowed to a crawl. After losing six of their last eight and three straight, including two to the Senators, Bergevin made the first firing of the season. To be fair, that was probably the only surprise — that Julien was the first to go. A bunch of bench bosses have been rumored to be on thin ice for a while but still have jobs despite their clubs still struggling. With Julien now on the market, there could be an influx of coaches looking for work. Last year, following the firing of Mike Babcock by the Maple Leafs, John Hynes (Devils), Pete DeBoer (Sharks), Peter Laviolette (Predators), Gerard Gallant (Golden Knights) and Bruce Boudreau (Wild) were all let go before the season finished. (Jim Montgomery and Bill Peters were also fired, but for off-ice...
    High school football and other outdoor sports will be allowed to resume play across many parts of California for the first time in nearly 12 months, the state Department of Public Health announced Friday morning, culminating a long-fought battle for return-to-play advocates. Football, baseball, softball, soccer, water polo and lacrosse are all among the sports allowed to begin competition next Friday in any county in the state with a per-capita case rate of fewer than 14 per 100,000 residents — currently 27 of the state’s 58 counties, including all but Contra Costa and Solano counties in the Bay Area. Indoor sports were left untouched, without compelling evidence they can be played safely. Higher-contact sports that have been approved to play must also adhere to new guidelines, namely a weekly testing regimen. Dr. Tomás Aragón, the state’s public health officer, cited declining rates of infection across the state as a key factor for the timing of the announcement, which return-to-play advocates have been anticipating all week after nearly two months of negotiations. “Youth sports are important to our...

    If you’re watching college football bowl games, or the College Football Playoffs, you may notice a similar appearance among the head coaches. Several of them are wearing the same type of face mask. In fact, three of the four coaches in the College Football Playoffs (Nick Saban, Ryan Day and Brian Kelly) all wore the same style of mask during their last game action. With so many different mask variations out there, it’s interesting that so many in college football are going with the same mask. It’s even more interesting because this mask doesn’t seem to be making as many appearances in other sports leagues, such as the NFL or NBA. We explain why that is in more detail below.

    WESTFORD (CBS) — Despite tearful testimony by students and parents, Westford’s School Committee voted 4-3 Tuesday to cancel the district’s hockey and basketball seasons amid a statewide spike in COVID-19 cases. Superintendent of Schools Everett Olsen said he was worried about the trickle-down effect of potential COVID-19 infections since coaches also work as teachers. “Many of our coaches are also our teachers so that could compromise the ability to provide instruction to all of our students,” said Olsen. Westford Academy senior and basketball player Matt Sepe called the decision devastating. “I think the winter is a tough time for a lot of people normally, without this pandemic. Basketball gives people something to look forward to, especially now. It would be like a sense of normal,” Sepe said. At least 30 school districts plan to keep all of their winter sports following masking and distancing guidelines from the state and the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association. Westford had already canceled its winter wrestling and indoor track programs.
    New York Giants: Joe Judge underrated compared to other rookie coaches? By: Cay North December 4, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Giants brought on Joe Judge as their head coach this season, and have seen immediate improvements. For the first time in a number of years, the Giants are actually a competitive team in December and still have a chance to make the playoffs. It’s easy to take that for granted, but it hasn’t been the case recently – and under Ben McAdoo and Pat Shurmur, much of the discussion around this time of year has been about whether or not the Giants should clean house. Those talks have receded this time, and it’s not just because Judge is a rookie head coach that’s still in his grace period. While there have been some problems this year, and while the Giants were forced to switch up their strategies after Saquon Barkley was taken out for the season, the team has ultimately played well enough that they could very well win the NFC East this...
    The cancellation of last season’s NCAA Tournament due to COVID-19 was a major blow to everyone involved in college basketball, not the least being the bettors and sportsbooks. Bettors get a break this season, though, because the circumstances surrounding the lockdowns led many college programs to stay the course in regard to coaching changes. Only 21 have occurred since the end of the season, less than half the number handicappers usually deal with. There will be a lot of other unusual factors, some unforeseen at this point, in getting ready to wager on the coming season. Having fewer new coaches to consider lessens that burden. Regardless of the low quantity, a coaching change always makes a huge difference in a team’s prospectus and thus must be considered near the top of the list of important factors in handicapping. Let’s look at several high-profile changes and try to get a feel for how it might affect that team’s win-loss record as well as its style of play. Iona 2019-20 record: 12-17 SU, 12-16 ATS, 12-17 O/U Former coach: Tim Cluess...
    Editor’s note: This is one in a series of Q&A’s that Bay Area Preps HQ is doing with high school league commissioners throughout the region in advance of the scheduled start of practice for sports such as football, volleyball and water polo in December. Look for links to the published Q&A’s here. Schools in the Diablo Athletic League can boast of winning state championships in recent years in cross country, volleyball and football, and Northern California championships in basketball, water polo and soccer. So, naturally, the commissioner of the DAL, Pat Lickliss, is as interested as anyone to see how the next several weeks play out, and whether athletes in the league can once again try to compete for regional and state crowns — even in the face of a pandemic. “I would say I’m cautiously optimistic,” Lickliss said. “As a former coach and school administrator, and now as a commissioner, I want these kids to play. I want them back in school and I want them to play. It was so tragic that the seniors lost...
    St. John’s believes it is vastly improved from last year, with a deeper roster better suited to play Mike Anderson’s up-tempo style in his second season. The Big East coaches still don’t see the Johnnies moving up in the conference. In the league’s preseason poll, released shortly before its virtual media day on Wednesday, Anderson’s team was picked to finish ninth in the 11-team conference with 33 votes, four behind No. 8 Butler. No St. John’s player was named in the league’s preseason honors, which is voted on by coaches. Motivation shouldn’t be hard to come by for the Johnnies, who finished ninth out of 10 teams last year — exactly where they were picked to finish — but came on strong late, winning three of their last four games, including the Big East Tournament opener over Georgetown prior to the cancellation of the season due to COVID-19. Despite losing leading scorer LJ Figueroa, St. John’s has high hopes after adding a number of potential key parts, in particular George Washington grad transfer forward Arnaldo Toro and freshman point guard...
    The Bishop O’Dowd boys basketball team hasn’t been in the gym since March 10. The players miss the feeling of competing against their rivals. With the general election nearing and civil unrest sparked by George Floyd’s killing raging on, O’Dowd’s head coach, Lou Richie, found a way to blend his team’s competitive nature with an obligation he felt to turn the social justice movement he’d witnessed into tangible change. “We can’t play,” Richie said. “But we can compete against each other to see who can register more kids to vote.” And so Richie started a voter registration challenge. It is a campaign to challenge coaches — from Golden State Warriors’ Steve Kerr to a local rival, Moreau Catholic’s Frank Knight — to get students and people to register and pre-register to vote. “When O’Down challenged us, the competitive nature kicked in,” Knight said. “I’m hoping the action turns to civic after the competitiveness turns down.” Richie came up with the idea after meeting with Oakland civil rights attorney John Burriss. The East Bay native was...
    Blake Shelton joked in a new Instagram clip posted by The Voice that he lies to the other coaches in order to get the best artists on his team. The coach with the most wins under his belt, a total of six, Blake revealed his tactics in order to score the best singers and performers each season, to the delight of his fellow panelists Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, and Gwen Stefani. Blake told the cameras that he is always looking for something a little bit different when it comes to completing his group and revealed that the times he had won his seasons it was not with a country singer. He said he was always on the “prowl” when it came to finding someone that would give him a chance at the top spot. In the video clip, Blake claimed he may be “full of crap” but he would not be deterred as he spoke to a performer. “I do lie, but only when something is important to me,” he joked. “It’s worth it to me to lie to these...
