Jim Harbaugh officially introduced as Chargers head coach – Cosy Sports Update


NFL – Jim Harbaugh is ready to resume his chase of a Super Bowl title with the Chargers
Jim Harbaugh fulfilled one of his goals by winning a national championship at his alma mater. Now he’s looking to capture his ultimate goal of hoisting the Lombardi Trophy with one of the teams he played for. Harbaugh resumed his pursuit of a Super Bowl title on Thursday when he was introduced as the Los Angeles Chargers’ coach. He agreed to terms on a five-year contract last Wednesday after nine seasons at the University of Michigan, including going 15-0 and winning the school’s first national championship since 1997 last month.

NFL – Commanders hiring Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn as coach
The Washington Commanders have an agreement with Dan Quinn to hire him as coach, two people with knowledge of the move tell The Associated Press. Quinn has been the Dallas Cowboys’ defensive coordinator for the past three seasons. He coached the Falcons to a Super Bowl appearance in his five-plus years in Atlanta. Quinn became the choice for Washington after Lions offensive coordinator Ben Johnson informed teams he was staying with Detroit. Controlling owner Josh Harris, new general manager Adam Peters and Quinn give the organization a much-desired new approach after four years of Ron Rivera in charge turned out to be a disappointment.

NHL – NHL All-Star Weekend has a new look, leaning into some old ideas after input
The NHL is reaching back into its history in an attempt to bring the fun back to All-Star Weekend. The popular player draft has returned after a nearly-decade absence. And the skills competition Friday night has a new format that leans into old-school events like hardest shot and fastest skater. The changes in Toronto came after the skills competition last year drew criticism for being confusing and disjointed. Reigning MVP Connor McDavid and other players were consulted and came up with the ideas. McDavid and 11 other All-Stars will do the skills competition with the winner taking home a $1 million prize.

NCAA – NCAA generates $1.3 billion in revenue. Division I payouts reach $669 million
The NCAA generated nearly $1.3 billion in revenue for the 2022-23 fiscal year, and more than half of that was distributed back to Division I members. That’s according to financial statements released by the association. NCAA revenues rose from about $1.14 billion in the previous fiscal year to $1.28 billion. As usual, the bulk of the NCAA’s revenue — $945 million — came from media rights and marketing deals tied to championship events. Roughly 69% of the money came from the men’s basketball tournament. The NCAA’s expenses reached $1.17 billion, which includes $669 million distributed to the more than 363 Division I member schools.

The 6-foot-4 Smith had a career-best season last year with averages of 9.2 points, 6.6 rebounds and 1.3 blocks for the Sky. She was a finalist for the WNBA’s Most Improved Player award.

Golf – Patrick Cantlay takes off PGA board hat, shoots 64, trails Thomas Detry by 1 shot
Patrick Cantlay has spent a lot of time on the phone as a PGA Tour board member trying to finalize a $3 billion investment deal. His focus was on golf at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Cantlay opened with a bogey-free 64 at Spyglass Hill. That leaves him one shot behind Thomas Detry, who chipped in for birdie on his final hole. Matthieu Pavon was at 65. Rory McIlroy was leading until a rough finish gave him a 71. That included a two-shot penalty for taking an incorrect drop on the 16th hole at Spyglass. McIlroy’s bogey turned into a triple bogey.
