USC fires basketball coach O'Neill
By BETH HARRIS (AP Sports Writer) | The Associated Press – 33 minutes ago

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Kevin O'Neill took over a troubled Southern California basketball team, getting the Trojans back to the NCAA tournament after NCAA issues kept them out in his first season while producing winning records twice in 3 1/2 years. It wasn't enough.

He was fired on Monday, with the Trojans 7-10 overall and 2-2 in the Pac-12 after splitting their road trip last weekend.

''We just didn't win enough last year and this year. That's what this business is,'' O'Neill told The Associated Press by phone. ''We tried to do as well as we could, tried to get the program to the highest level. My goal every day going in there was to try to win a national title.''

He had a 48-65 record at the school known primarily for its powerful football program after going 6-26 last year while setting a USC record for losses.

Athletic director Pat Haden said the program needed new leadership.

''Despite a nice road win in our last game, I felt it was best to make a change now, with most of the Pac-12 season still ahead of us, in order to re-energize our team,'' he said.

O'Neill was hired by Haden's predecessor, Mike Garrett, who said at the time, ''Hopefully he's here forever.'' O'Neill took the USC job after spending a season as an assistant with the Memphis Grizzlies.

''Nothing in this business surprises me,'' O'Neill said, adding that he and Haden ''really didn't have any discussions other than how the team is doing.''

Veteran assistant Bob Cantu will serve as interim coach while USC searches for a successor. Cantu took over for O'Neill during a Pac-10 tournament semifinal game against Arizona in 2010-11 when the coach was suspended after getting into a verbal confrontation with a Wildcats booster. He has remained on the staff through four coaching changes and is the longest tenured assistant in the Pac-12.

''Couldn't be more excited and anxious to get started with (hashtag) coachbobcantu,'' tweeted senior center James Blaszyk.

The Trojans lost at Colorado before winning at Utah to snap a 14-game road skid over the weekend. USC has lost nine of its last 13 games, which included a five-game skid.

''There's been a lot of challenges in it but I really enjoyed my time,'' O'Neill told the AP. ''I'm thankful for my opportunity. I'm going to cheer for them every day.''

Upon arriving at USC in June 2009, O'Neill had to deal with the fallout from an ongoing NCAA investigation and school-imposed sanctions involving star O.J. Mayo, who played one season under Tim Floyd before leaving for the NBA.

The Trojans went 16-14, including a sweep of crosstown rival UCLA, and were in the hunt for the conference title until the final two weeks of the season. Sanctions imposed by the school in response to the NCAA investigation prohibited them from postseason play.

The next season, O'Neill lost three starters and four of his top six players from the rotation, but he guided the Trojans to a 19-15 record and an NCAA tournament berth. They lost in the first round to Virginia Commonwealth. That team included Nikola Vucevic, a first-round draft pick who now plays for the Orlando Magic.

Last season, the Trojans were hard-hit by injury, leaving O'Neill with just six scholarship players for nearly half the season who managed to keep the team in most every game. The biggest blow was losing point guard Jio Fontan, who tore his ACL after scoring 57 points in two exhibition games in Brazil. Forward Aaron Fuller (shoulder) and big man Dewayne Dedmon (torn MCL) also went down with season-ending injuries at different points.

''It got really pronounced because we didn't have freshmen or sophomores when I got here. Those classes were blank,'' said O'Neill, who dipped into the ranks of junior college players and transfers to fill out the roster. ''I thought our team was starting to come around and play better.''

He had a full complement of 13 scholarship players who were healthy this season.

''It was hard for me to evaluate him as a head coach until this year when he had enough players and veterans to compete,'' Haden said.

O'Neill said he's given no thought to his immediate future.

''Take a little time off, chill out a little bit,'' he said. ''I might go to New York and visit my dad. I really don't have any regrets, none at all.''

O'Neill, who turns 56 on Jan. 24, was hired by coach Lute Olson as an assistant at Arizona before the 2007-08 season, and became interim coach when Olson took a medical leave of absence.

O'Neill led the Wildcats to a 19-15 record and the school's 24th consecutive NCAA tournament appearance, at the time the nation's longest active streak. He was designated Olson's permanent successor, but when the Hall of Famer returned that spring he announced O'Neill would no longer be part of the program.

O'Neill had previous head coaching jobs at Marquette, Tennessee and Northwestern. He has a 219-245 record in the college ranks.

With the Bears hiring a new head coach, OC Mike Tice will probably get fired today. That would be points for me and HBF.

Report: Marinelli expected to stay on Bears staff
Posted by Darin Gantt on January 16, 2013, 10:40 AM EST

New Bears coach Marc Trestman is already working quickly to fill his staff, and part of the work might not involve relocating anyone.

According to Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times, multiple sources think Trestman will retain Bears defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli.

Keeping an incumbent to run an already good defense makes sense, given Trestman’s focus will be on the other side of the ball.

And having some continuity might also pacify some of the players who were disillusioned with the dismissal of the popular Lovie Smith.

According to Jensen, quarterbacks coach Jeremy Bates is viewed as a good bet to remain as well, though Aaron Kromer’s addition likely means the end of the Mike Tice era.


---------------

Kromer is the new OC but Tice hasn't been officially fired yet.

Fuckin' A! I have a bunch of Chicago buddies who swore that Tice was hitting the bricks!

Tice is gone. Kromer will be OC and OL coach. Trestman will actually call the plays on offense allowing Kromer to concentrate on the offensive line. When I find something on  the net confirming Tice's firing, I will post it.

Finally confirmed. Tice fired. I am such an idiot. I should have picked the entire Bears coaching staff.

Jeremy Bates is out in Chicago
Posted by Mike Florio on January 17, 2013, 9:53 PM EST

It was believed that new Bears coach Marc Trestman would keep Jeremy Bates, the quarterbacks coach whose strong relationship with Jay Cutler commenced when they were together in Denver.

But the Bears have now announced that Bates is out.

It’s the first tangible action taken by the Bears with which Cutler possibly will take issue.  And he possibly won’t resist speaking his mind about it.

The Bears also announced that offensive coordinator Mike Tice, linebackers coach Bob Babich, tight ends coach Mike DeBord, receivers coach Darryl Drake, offensive line coach Tim Holt, running backs coach Tim Spencer, and defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli will not return.

Did anybody here pick Alvin Gentry ????



from cbssports.com:

The Phoenix Suns and coach Alvin Gentry will no longer be enjoying each other's company. The two sides have agreed to part ways with the organization looking to get younger and build for the future, while Gentry was hung up on trying to win games. From the Phoenix Suns' press release:

The Phoenix Suns and Alvin Gentry have mutually agreed to part ways after his five-plus seasons as head coach, the club announced today. An interim coach will be named in the next 24-48 hours.
After four-plus years with Gentry coaching the sidelines for the Suns and compiling a record of 158-144 with a trip to the Western Conference Finals in 2010, the team wants someone who is willing to play the young talent on the team right now and develop that young talent.
