(AP) — The Chiefs introduced longtime Packers executive John Dorsey as their new general manager Monday, turning over a team that was 2-14 to one of them men responsible for building Green Bay into a consistent winner. Dorsey takes over for Scott Pioli, who was fired after four tumultuous seasons. The Chiefs announced the Dorsey had been hired on Saturday night, while the Packers were playing the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC playoffs.

Dorsey played for the Packers and later was a scout and director of scouting while new Chiefs coach Andy Reid was an assistant in Green Bay. Dorsey left to spend a year in Seattle, but returned to the Packers and rose to director of football operations.

Abuse charge dropped against Iowa State’s Palo

Sports

January 15th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Prosecutors have dismissed a sexual abuse charge against Iowa State basketball player Bubu Palo, paving the way for him to rejoin the Cyclones. Palo was suspended from the team in September after being charged with sexually abusing a woman he was driving home in May. The Story County Attorney’s Office announced Monday that new forensic evidence found on the woman’s blouse clashed with her and her mother’s sworn testimony.

Iowa State said later Monday that Palo had been cleared to resume basketball-related activities. Palo says he’s relieved and that he felt he’d never gotten a chance to defend himself. He says he was raised to do the right thing and “would never make a mistake to this level.” Another man who’d been charged, Spencer Cruise, of Ames, also was cleared.

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State freshman forward Georges Niang isn’t very athletic. But teammate Will Clyburn knew from the moment he saw the 6-foot-7 Niang play that he was watching a youngster who would help the Cyclones. All summer, Clyburn watch Niang shoot over smaller players and simply go around the bigger ones, and he has become one of the Big 12′s better freshmen.

Niang is third on Iowa State in scoring at 11.5 points per game. He was also named the Big 12′s Rookie of the Week on Monday after averaging 15.5 points per game in a loss to Kansas and a win over Texas last week. Niang and the Cyclones (11-4, 1-1 Big 12) host West Virginia (8-7, 1-2) on Wednesday night.
