    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — The same day the Los Angeles Rams signed wideout Odell Beckham Jr., receiver Robert Woods, a major piece of the team’s offense, suffered a season-ending ACL injury. “You’re sick for Robert,” said head coach Sean McVay. “He’s epitomized everything that’s been right about this place.

    UConn is reportedly hiring Al Golden to be the next coach of the Huskies. According to Sean Alcide, the former Miami head coach has been tapped to take over the Huskies. He’s currently an assistant coach for the Cincinnati Bengals.

Golden has head coaching experience at the college level after leading Miami and Temple. However, it’s hard to argue that he had a ton of success. He went 32-25 during his time with the Hurricanes. While that’s not a terrible record, it’s far from impressive. There’s a reason he got shown the exit at Miami, and it’s not because he was winning too much. It was because it was clear that he couldn’t make Miami a contender. The...
    When Bruce Arians met Saints head coach Sean Peyton to shake hands after the game, the Bucs head coach immediately asked after Jameis Winston. Jameis Winston was having a resurgent season as the starter for the New Orleans Saints. Then in a cruel twist of fate, he suffered a serious-looking injury against his former team. Winston had to be carted off the field and reports suggest he may have suffered an ACL injury. His Saints teammates seemed to understand the severity of the moment. And so did Bucs head coach Bruce Arians.Bruce Arians’ first concern after the Bucs’ loss was Jameis WinstonThe first thing Arians appeared to ask when he went to shake Sean Payton’s hand after the game was about Winston. I think this is Bruce Arians asking Sean Payton for an update on Jameis Winston. I think you can figure out by BA’s reaction what might be the case. pic.twitter.com/pz56c3BKKV — James Palmer (@JamesPalmerTV) October 31, 2021 It definitely looks like Arians referenced Winston and Payton didn’t have good news the share.

The Cardinals announced that defensive coordinator Vance Joseph and assistant head coach/special teams coordinator Jeff Rodgers will split head coaching responsibilities during the game. Kingsbury also calls the team’s offensive plays and filling that role will also involve a couple of coaches. Chris Mortensen reports that offensive line coach/run game coordinator Sean Kugler and assistant wide receivers coach Spencer Whipple will be handling the playcalling duties against the Browns.

    Getty Sean McVay during the Rams' third preseason game against the Denver Broncos on August 28. Sean McVay, like any other press conference on a Wednesday afternoon during game week for the Los Angeles Rams, touched all the usual bases that a head coach would do: Address the preparation and dive into the upcoming matchup. Except this presser early on included McVay expressing what he called sadness and surprise. All because of the news involving one of his former bosses and mentors Jon Gruden. News of Gruden’s racial, misogynistic and offensive emails that led to him parting ways with the Las Vegas Raiders has dominated both the NFL and news landscape throughout the week of October 11. McVay opened his presser addressing that situation. Sean McVay is currently speaking and I will have fuller/clearer comments written shortly. Opened by saying he’s saddened by the Gruden situation, for the people and the families who were hurt by it and by those emails’ contents. — Jourdan Rodrigue (@JourdanRodrigue) October 13, 2021 Sean McVay says he's sad about the entire situation...

That has changed with Matthew Stafford at quarterback.  © Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Robert Woods Woods has just 15 passes for 172 yards and two touchdowns on 25 targets this season. He previously averaged 132 targets per season.  After catching a touchdown pass in Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals, Woods flipped the ball away, a sign that he could be frustrated with his role in the Los Angeles offense.  Rams head coach Sean McVay doesn't believe Woods is frustrated with his role and was simply showing frustration about the team's offensive struggles. McVay added that he wants to get Woods more involved in the offense in the coming weeks: "This guy's a stud in every sense of the word. It is important to be able to get a...

    Saints head coach Sean Payton has to choose between quarterbacks Taysom Hill and Jameis Winston and he knows when he plans to do it. When will Saints head coach Sean Payton announce his starting quarterback for 2021? When he wants to and not a moment sooner. Literally, the head coach isn’t setting a timeline for naming a starter. His answer to a question about the timing was as vague as can be. “Before we play our first game,” Payton told ESPN’s Lisa Salters.Sean Payton isn’t in a rush to name his Saints quarterback for 2021Payton is picking between Taysom Hill and Jameis Winston. The former filled in for Drew Brees last season and went 3-1 while showing off his mobility and versatility. He has unique abilities as a runner that bolster his claim to the starting job. The latter is a former No. 1 overall pick with a higher ceiling as a passer. While his time in Tampa Bay turned sour because of serious interception problems, he has thrown more than 5,000 yards in a season in his career. The...
    Getty Sean McVay reacts to a play during a 2021 NFC playoff game at Green Bay. How does Sean McVay keep at it as an offensive genius in an ever-changing National Football League? Is it through free agency pickups to upgrade his offenses? Perhaps through the NFL Draft? Or is it by adjusting to what defenses throw at the Los Angeles Rams weekly? McVay gave a unique answer on the Wednesday edition of the “Flying Coach” podcast with Peter Schrager. “I’ve referenced this before: Some of the best coaches are also the best thieves,” McVay said. The incoming fifth-year head coach explained this analogy near the 61 minute mark of the show when answering fan mail, or as Schrager calls it “Air Mail.”Explaining Going the ‘Thief’ RouteWhat exactly does he mean by that?

    Scott Taetsch/Getty Images Head coach Mike Tomlin of the Pittsburgh Steelers on December 29, 2019. Last summer Mike Florio and Chris Simms teamed up to name the most disrespected figures in the NFL and Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin came in at No. 1 on their list. Little has changed between then and now, so it’s perhaps no surprise that Tomlin was recently ranked as just the No. 10 best head coach in the NFL by Cody Benjamin of CBS Sports. Tomlin slots in behind the likes of No. 9 Matt LaFleur (Packers), No. 8 Bruce Arians (Buccaneers), No. 7 Pete Carroll (Seahawks) and No. 6 Sean McVay (Rams).

    Getty Jake Funk runs the football in a 2020 game against Penn State. Funk was drafted in the seventh round by the Los Angeles Rams and has won over his head coach Sean McVay, who has called him "Mature." The Los Angeles Rams running back room only has five bodies, with 2021 seventh round selection Jake Funk representing the lone rookie in the depth chart. Seventh round picks traditionally have a tougher road in making the final roster. Most are cut during training camp or demoted to the practice squad. In looking back at the best seventh rounders of all-time by the Pro Football Network, only Bo Jackson is labeled the best seventh round running back of all time, though he first entered the NFL as the No. 1 overall pick by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 1986 draft, but opted to suit up in the MLB for the Kansas City Royals before re-entering the draft. However, the former Maryland Terrapin Funk is winning over his new head coach Sean McVay. The fifth-year head coach told reporters...

    Arizona had stuck by men's basketball coach Sean Miller through an NCAA infractions investigation that stretched nearly four years. When the school didn't extend his contract beyond next season, it became clear a decision would need to be made. The wait came to an end Wednesday when the school announced Miller was leaving after 12 seasons and associate head coach Jack Murphy will serve as interim head coach. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM "We appreciate Sean’s commitment to our basketball program and to the university," Arizona athletic director Dave Heeke said in a statement.

    With some doubt surfacing about his future, the University of Arizona and Sean Miller have parted ways. The University of Arizona men’s basketball program is getting a fresh start. According to Stadium’s Jeff Goodman, the school and head coach Sean Miller have decided to part ways after 12 seasons. Arizona surfaced prominently in the NCAA’s investigation into improprieties in college basketball a few years ago. Miller was not implicated as heavily as his former assistant coaches, only ultimately “charged” with failure to promote an atmosphere of compliance and alleged Level 1 violation revealed when the school finally released its notice of allegations. With one year left on his contract, speculation about his future was easy. Arizona seems to be getting away pretty cheaply. Sean Miller met with both Arizona president Dr. Robert Robbins and AD Dave Heeke last night for more than an hour with no conclusion, source told @stadium. Then met again this morning and decided to part ways with Miller, who is owed about $1.5 million. — Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanHoops) April 7, 2021 The Wildcats self-imposed a...

Arizona Announces Departure of Men’s Basketball Head Coach Sean Miller — Arizona Basketball (@APlayersProgram) April 7, 2021 This is absolutely shocking to me. Miller is one of the best coaches in college basketball and he’s now unemployed.

    Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints have become synonymous with one another over the course of the past 15 years. Drafted by the San Diego Chargers back in 2001, Brees was snapped up by the Saints as a free agent in 2006. And since then he never looked back. Going on to become a 13-time Pro Bowler and a Super Bowl champion, Brees showed the world just how special a talent he was.  Having hung up his boots only recently at the age of 42, Brees has left a lasting impact on the franchise. Something that the Saints Head Coach Sean Payton agrees with as well.  Drew Brees was one-of-a-kind During a segment of ESPN’s Greeny, Saints Head Coach talked about all the things that made Drew Brees so special as an individual at length. “He’s such an optimistic person. That’s one of the great traits he has when you really watch him. If you tune in to a game, and it just goes to the offense or him in the huddle or breaking the huddle, you would never...
    LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — There’s good reason for the Chicago Bears to think some of Vic Fangio’s defensive knowledge rubbed off on new defensive coordinator Sean Desai. The two were close during Fangio’s time with the Bears as defensive coordinator. “We were both in the booth and he sat next to me,” Desai said. “Well, I sat next to him, I should say. He got to choose where he wanted to sit. I was just put next to him.” Desai is hoping to return his team to playing a style more similar to how they played under Fangio, the current Denver Broncos head coach who was the defensive coordinator in Chicago when the Bears were ranked No. 1 in the NFL in 2018. “So my analogies may not be great but this is like a tune-up,” Desai said. “You know, we’re going to refine some things and make sure our players are playing to their strengths on a consistent basis and they’re going to buy into the system and the whys and the hows of why we’re doing certain...
    After New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton bemoaned the “disturbing” lack of Black coaches in the NFL last month, he offered a solution -– teams should hire Stanford coach David Shaw. Shaw hadn’t talked to Payton in more than a year, but he heard the quotes from his wife, Kori. “She said, ‘Do you have a new agent?’ ” Shaw said Wednesday. “I said, ‘No, we would have talked about that.’ She said, ‘Oh I was wondering if Sean became your agent,’ and she showed me what he said and I just started laughing. “I’ve told the team (at Stanford) repeatedly that when my name comes up in those NFL circles it’s just because of how well our guys play, and how they represent the football program at Stanford University,” Shaw said. Shaw, who just completed his 10th season at Stanford, said he appreciated Payton being outspoken in support of more diverse hiring. “I remember him saying basically all you have to be is young and white and have some success as a coordinator, you’re...
    The Buffalo Bills are one win away from making it back to the grandest stage of them all in the NFL. With the Super Bowl in sight, the high-flying Bills still have a tough challenge lined up ahead of them. That being the Kansas City Chiefs.  With the winner being crowned the AFC champion and handed a ticket to the Super Bowl, the Bills know that they’ll have to bring their A-game if they are to beat the reigning champions. But there is one uncertainty that lingers over this matchup.

While Reid has been leader to some of the greatest offenses the league has ever seen, he also deserves a lot of credit for co-activating new leaders at his stops with the Eagles and the Chiefs Coaching trees in the NFL are, largely, overrated, but there's something about the Reid tree that's borne good fruit: three coaches have reached the Super Bowl, two have won it, and most of them have some measure of playoff and division success in their NFL careers.

    New Orleans Saints' Sean Payton criticized NFL teams this week for the lack of diversity in head coaching and general manager positions, calling it a "disturbing" reality.

PACKERS GIVE BACK TO GREEN BAY POLICE DEPARTMENT IN BIG WAY Payton brought up Stanford head coach David Shaw, with whom he worked on the Philadelphia Eagles' staff in 1997, arguing that while Black coaches are offered the big jobs – the deals aren’t lucrative enough to get them to leave their current positions.

He’s also one of three coaches on the nine-member Competition Committee, which carries a lot of juice in the NFL.

    Getty Bills general manager Brandon Beane looks on with head coach Sean McDermott. The Buffalo Bills organization is becoming something special and the two masterminds that have put in the work to build it up are going to be around for a long time to see the fruits of their labor. After signing head coach Sean McDermott to a multi-year contract extension in August, the Bills announced on Thursday that they were also signing general manager Brandon Beane to a contract extension as well. With what they’ve been able to do in their three-and-a-half years together, they both deserve it as they have completely reshaped, the culture, the roster, and the outlook of the franchise. The idea of just making the playoffs was the ultimate goal for the Bills before McDermott and Beane took over as they were in the midst of a 17-year playoff drought. Winning a Super Bowl was never really on their minds. Now, that mindset is completely different. “I’ve put a lot into this place and what we...
