Three killed in multiple-vehicle crash in Thornton

Opinion: NFL owners keep rejecting Black head-coaching candidates. Is it time for legal action?

For all of the noise, the initiatives, committees, research reports and even various measures of progress, there’s still so much to be desired when it comes to equal opportunity for African Americans to become NFL head coaches.

Congratulations, Byron Leftwich. You called the plays for Tom Brady to help the Tampa Bay Buccaneers win a Super Bowl.

And you didn’t land even a single interview for any of the top jobs that opened up this year.

Eric Bieniemy? You didn’t ask to become the poster image of what’s wrong with the hiring process in the NFL. But it’s just happened that way. Three years, two Super Bowl appearances as the Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator, 12 interviews, zero job offers to become a head coach. Many wonder why. Or why not?

Never mind the passionate endorsements from the likes of Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, head coach Andy Reid and tight end Travis Kelce. Or the apparent push from QB Deshaun Watson to join him in Houston. Back to the drawing board.

Extensive offseason work has raised Chicago’s Zach LaVine’s game to an All-Star level

The shortened 2019-20 season had unintended benefits for Zach LaVine.

The Bulls weren’t part of the bubble restart, giving the shooting guard an unusual amount of time to analyze his game on video and then work on it in the gym.

“I took advantage of the time,” LaVine told USA TODAY Sports. “I got extra time to break down my game. Not my whole game because at a certain point you are who you are. You just get better at the things you’re good at and try to make up for your faults. Last summer, I was real specific about what I wanted to work on.”

LaVine sat down with renowned skills coach Drew Hanlen who identified areas where LaVine needed to improve offensively: at the rim, 3-10 feet from the rim and 3-pointers.

LaVine and Hanlen put together a plan.

The results have been phenomenal. LaVine averages career-highs in points (28.7), assists (5.1) and rebounds (5.2). Most impressive are his shooting percentages: career-bests in field goal shooting (52.5%, seven points higher than last season) and 3-pointers (43.5%, five points higher than last season).
