DOHA, Qatar — The education of Gregg Berhalter began at an elite boarding school in New Jersey and continued at the University of North Carolina. And while that book learning was fine and all, neither school taught Berhalter the subject he really wanted to study, which was soccer. So he left college a year short of a degree for a kind of study-abroad program in the Netherlands. He didn't get a ...

Matt Rhule’s voice was on the other end of the phone line in Nebraska, and he wanted to make sure Carolina Panthers fans understood a few things. “I’m not bitter about being fired,” Rhule said when we talked Thursday in what was his first interview with any Charlotte-area reporter since he was jettisoned as Carolina Panthers head coach on Oct. 10. But Rhule said there were some misconceptions ...

Give Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel credit for not making Sunday’s game against San Francisco about him and his friend, Kyle Shanahan, the 49ers head coach, in any way. Sometimes that’s a fine line to walk. McDaniel continuously insists this week’s game is about two of the NFL’s hottest teams — the Dolphins (8-3), who are riding a five-game winning streak, and the 49ers (7-4), who are riding a ...

South Florida sports fans awakened on Sunday with a Hurricanes hangover — that pain you feel when your college football team just finished its worst season in 15 years as a colossal disappointment in Year 1 of new coach Mario Cristobal. The feelgood came fast, though, and it came in a double dose: A morning report that Lionel Messi will be be signing with Inter Miami, the news breaking like a ...

Fifty years after the game that changed his life, Anthony Davis sits in an office surrounded by a museum of his USC memorabilia, wondering what might've been if his biggest moment never materialized. The six touchdowns Davis scored on Notre Dame that day in December 1972 would go down as one of the greatest single-game performances in college football history, the piece de resistance of a ...

SEATTLE — Kalen DeBoer arrived at the University of Washington one year ago as something of a nomad, which is how it works in the college coaching world for the upwardly mobile as they ascend the ladder. DeBoer had held five jobs in the previous 10 years, none longer than four years. I asked him at his introductory news conference last November if he viewed Washington as a destination spot ...

Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel preached a message of togetherness and unity Wednesday, a message that involved family and football. McDaniel even got choked up a little bit when talking about the things that give him the most reason to be thankful. His wife, Katie, and daughter, Ayla, topped the list. “I do have an issue about being long winded,” McDaniel began Wednesday, the day before ...

Mark Stoops knows the timing was awkward. As the college football coaching carousel kicked into gear early with several high-profile firings in season and Kentucky climbing into the top 10 of the Associated Press top 25 after a 4-0 start to the 2022 season, Stoops’ name was beginning to be prominently linked to jobs like Nebraska and Auburn. Stoops, Athletic Director Mitch Barnhart and ...

One day before Kentucky football’s loss to Vanderbilt earlier this month, the school signed head coach Mark Stoops to a contract extension that would keep him as coach through the 2030 season. Stoops’ previous contract was set to expire after the 2027 season but included a clause that triggered an automatic one-year extension any time Kentucky won seven games and a two-year extension anytime ...

CHICAGO — How does a record-setting quarterback who finished his college career with minus-137 rushing yards become the architect of one of the NFL’s most successful ground attacks in decades? The answer, if you ask J.D. Brookhart — the coach at Akron when Luke Getsy set 24 school passing records in 2005-06 — is simpler than you might think. “Luke is the most sensible, pragmatic guy,” ...

I never coached a national college champion. I never built a Super Bowl winner or feuded with my team’s owner in a way that still resonates. But I wrote a book as if I did. Former Dolphins and UM coach Jimmy Johnson talked to me. I typed like him. It’s an odd form of literary ventriloquism called “ghostwriting,” where he spoke about the heights of winning it all and the depths of a father’s ...

The hire made sense. To coordinate Kentucky’s offense, Mark Stoops replaced one former NFL assistant coach with another former NFL assistant coach. Liam Coen came from the Kyle Shanahan/Mike Shanahan coaching tree. Rich Scangarello came from the Kyle Shanahan/Mike Shanahan coaching tree. On paper, the transition from Coen to Scangarello seemed seamless. It hasn’t worked out that way. Ten games ...
