KC Chiefs News

Sports

January 22nd, 2016 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chiefs general manager John Dorsey expects running back Jamaal Charles to be ready for next season, though he sidestepped questions about a number of pending free agents. In his first comments since the Chiefs’ season ended with a playoff loss in New England, Dorsey said Thursday that Charles is “ahead of schedule” in his return from a torn ACL suffered Oct. 11.

Dorsey declined to discuss the future of All-Pro safety Eric Berry and veteran linebackers Derrick Johnson and Tamba Hali, saying only that “I would like to assess every situation.” All three have been a major part of the Kansas City defense, and all three are free agents. Other notable free agents include defensive tackle Jaye Howard and quarterback Chase Daniel.

******************

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Chiefs have promoted Brad Childress and Matt Nagy to co-offensive coordinators, where they will replace new Philadelphia Eagles coach Doug Pederson. Childress had been the spread game analyst and special projects coach the past three years, while Nagy was in charge of quarterbacks. Childress also spent five seasons as head coach in Minnesota.

Both assistants have lengthy histories with Chiefs coach Andy Reid. Childress spent seven seasons with him in Philadelphia, coaching quarterbacks for three years and the final four as offensive coordinator. Nagy was an offensive quality control coach in Philadelphia and followed Reid to Kansas City prior to the 2013 season.

 

 

Jok has a career-high 29 as No. 9 Iowa beats Rutgers

Sports

January 21st, 2016 by Ric Hanson

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — Peter Jok scored a career-high 29 points and No. 9 Iowa shook off pesky Rutgers in the second half in posting a harder-than-expected 90-76 victory on Thursday night. Jarrod Uthoff and Anthony Clemmons added 20 points apiece as the Hawkeyes (15-3, 6-0) won their eighth straight game and their 12th in a row in the Big Ten Conference, dating to last season.

Iowa used a zone defense late in the first half in a 16-7 run that gave it a 45-37 lead, and it opened the game up in the second half with its long-range shooting. Mike Williams had 17 points to lead Rutgers (6-14, 0-7), which was coming off a 50-point loss to No. 22 Purdue on Monday, its worst home loss.

Oops! NFL refs forget balls at hotel before Patriots game

Sports

January 21st, 2016 by Ric Hanson

BOSTON (AP) – This ball controversy can’t be blamed on the Patriots. Massachusetts State Police came to the rescue before Saturday’s NFL playoff game between New England and the Kansas City Chiefs by delivering footballs that game officials left at their hotel.

A state police spokesman said at about 2:30 p.m. Saturday, league officials contacted the Hyatt at Logan Airport to say that some balls and air pressure gauges had been left behind. The balls were the ones used in the kicking game. Hotel workers entered the room and a state trooper drove the equipment to Gillette Stadium, arriving about an hour before kickoff.

The Patriots beat the Chiefs 27-20. The officials’ gaffe came about a year after the start of the “Deflategate” scandal, when the Patriots were accused of using underinflated balls.

IA Women fall to Penn State, Wed. night

Sports

January 21st, 2016 by Ric Hanson

The Big Ten Conference women’s basketball standings became more muddled Wednesday after Penn State shocked the University of Iowa, 82-69, in front of 3,873 on Mediacom Court inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena. According to Hawkeyesports.com., Penn State (7-11 overall, 2-5 Big Ten) ended a five-game losing skid by shooting 49 percent from the field and out-rebounding the Hawkeyes (13-6, 3-4) by 14.

UI sophomore Chase Coley made 7-of-10 field goals and shared game-high scoring honors with 16 points. Junior Ally Disterhoft had a tough night shooting (3-of-14 from the field), but still managed 13 points with seven rebounds, three assists, and two blocked shots. The Hawkeye point guard duo of sophomore Whitney Jennings and Tania Davis combined for 20 points, nine assists, six steals, and five rebounds.

Sunday can’t come soon enough for the Hawkeyes. That’s their next opportunity (at Purdue) to snap out of a funk of four losses in five games. Iowa returns to action — and the road — Jan. 24 at Purdue (14-4, 5-2). Tip-off is set for 2 p.m. (CT) and the game will be televised by BTN. The Boilermakers lost at home Wednesday to Nebraska, 62-61.
