November 30, 2021

UNDATED (AP) — Brian Kelly is the new head football coach at LSU after being lured away from Notre Dame. In 12 seasons with the Fighting Irish, Kelly is 113-40 with a current run of five straight double-digit victory seasons. Notre Dame just completed an 11-1 season on Saturday and still is in contention to reach the College Football Playoff for the third time in the last four years.

UNDATED (AP) — Washington has hired Fresno State’s Kalen DeBoer to lead the Huskies, handing a program that has struggled offensively to a coach with a track record of productive and creative offenses. Rhett Lashlee is the new head coach at SMU after two years as Miami’s offensive coordinator. Temple has fired football coach Rod Carey after going 12-20 over three lackluster seasons.

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma quarterback Spencer Rattler announced on social media that he will enter the transfer portal. The decision comes on the heels of coach Lincoln Riley’s decision to leave for USC. Rattler entered this season as a first-team preseason All-American and the favorite to win the Heisman Trophy. He was benched after a slow start against Texas.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Dallas Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy has entered COVID-19 protocols and won’t be on the sideline for Thursday night’s game in New Orleans. The team says McCarthy will be involved in all meetings virtually and will direct game preparations. There was no immediate word who would fill the interim role on the sideline against the Saints.

UNDATED (AP) — A current and former Cy Young Award winner have found new teams. A person with knowledge of the deal says the Mariners are finalizing a contract with AL Cy Young Award winner Robbie Ray, pending a physical.

Riley leave OU for USC...Duke drops Cutcliffe

November 29, 2021

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Southern California has lured football coach Lincoln Riley away from Oklahoma in a stunning move that suddenly puts the Sooners’ situation in limbo. Riley went 55-10 in five seasons leading the Sooners, winning four Big 12 titles and making three College Football Playoff appearances in his first head coaching job. The 38-year-old Texan is widely considered one of the top offensive minds in the college game.

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — David Cutcliffe won’t return for a 15th season as Duke’s football coach. The school has announced a “mutual agreement for separation” following the Blue Devils’ winless Atlantic Coast Conference record. Duke just closed a three-win season with a 47-10 home loss to Miami.

UNDATED (AP) — Michigan has jumped four spots to No. 2 in the latest Associated Press football poll following Saturday’s 42-27 rout of Ohio State, an outcome that dropped the Buckeyes from second to seventh. Georgia is a unanimous No. 1 for the eighth consecutive week. Cincinnati moved from fourth to third, changing places with Alabama. Iowa is ranked 15th this week.

MIAMI (AP) — Free agent outfielder Avisail Garcia has agreed to sign with the Miami Marlins. That’s according to a person with knowledge of the situation. Garcia’s deal will pay $53 million over four seasons. The 30-year-old is coming off his best season, setting career highs with 29 home runs with 86 RBIs for the Brewers this year.

MONTREAL (AP) — The Montreal Canadiens have fired general manager Marc Bergevin and assistant GM Trevor Timmons amid on-ice struggles just months after advancing to the Stanley Cup Final. Bergevin was in his 10th season as the team’s GM. Jeff Gorton will serve as executive vice president of hockey operations as the team searches for a new general manager.
