    Updated: 30 min ago

    Baylor has hired former Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe to replace Art Briles and lead its football program through a tumultuous time. The school announced Monday that Grobe had been hired as the acting coach. Briles was let go last week after the release of a report commissioned by the Waco, Texas, school that accused the successful coach of not responding to or inappropriately handling allegations of sexual assault and violence by members of his team. Grobe, 64, has been out of coaching for two seasons. He spent 13 years with Wake Forest, leading the team to some of its best seasons. Grobe was 77-82, including an Atlantic Coast Conference title and Orange Bowl appearance in 2006. The Demon Deacons went to five bowl games

  • OKC Dodgers' Jharel Cotton named PCL Pitcher of Week

    Jacob Unruh | Updated: 1 hr ago

    Jharel Cotton’s return to the starting rotation last week was a resounding success. The Oklahoma City Dodgers right-hander was named the Pacific Coast League Pitcher of the Week on Monday after two dominant starts on the road. Cotton, 24, struck out 10 batters in five innings last Monday against Fresno during his first start since April 24. He allowed just one run on a solo home run — the only hit he allowed — and walked one. Sunday, he struck out five in five innings against Sacramento, allowing one run on three hits and two walks. To add to his dominance on the mound, Cotton also went 2 for 2 at the plate with an RBI triple and run. Cotton moved to the bullpen late in April after

    Former Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe is expected to be named the interim coach at Baylor, according to multiple reports. Baylor, which is expected to conduct a full search after the upcoming season, fired coach Art Briles last week after a scathing report came out detailing the universities handling of reported sexual assaults involving members of the football team. Grobe is 110-115-1 in 19 seasons as a head coach. Baylor defensive coordinator Phil Bennett is expected to stay on in the same position.

    NEW YORK (AP) — Nearly 40,000 striking Verizon employees will return to work Wednesday after reaching a tentative contract agreement that includes 1,300 new call center jobs and nearly 11 percent in raises over four years but also makes health care plan changes to save the company money, the company and unions said Monday. The pact, subject to approval by union members, stands to end one of the largest strikes in the United States in recent years. Workers and Verizon Communications Inc. had reached an agreement in principle Friday but hadn't released details or a date for the workers' return. The strike began in mid-April.

    CAMP TARIQ, Iraq (AP) — Elite Iraqi special forces began their push Monday into Fallujah, expecting to encounter the stiffest resistance yet in the campaign to free territory from the Islamic State group. The city 40 miles (65 kilometers) west of Baghdad has been under militant control longer than any other part of Iraq, and IS fighters have had more than two years to dig in. Networks of tunnels like those found in other IS-held territory have already been discovered in its northeastern outskirts. The Iraqi troops, also known as the counterterrorism forces, are leading the assault on Fallujah, slowly moving up from the southern edge in a column of armored Humvees.

  • Good Demolitions

    Steve Lackmeyer | Updated: 4 hr ago

    Demolition has started on two eyesores - the rusted old portable classroom in front of Emerson School in Midtown and the former Body Works Collision Center in Bricktown. Both demolitions will lead to vastly improved viewscapes at key corridors for the two districts. Emerson is a jewel of a historic building, named after poet Ralph Waldo Emerson. The first building was built at the corner of NW 6 and Walker Avenue, a key entryway to Midtown, in 1895. It burned down in 1905, but the second building, which still stands, is a great rare example of early statehood architecture. For decades Emerson was a neighborhood elementary.

    AUSTIN, Texas — Augie Garrido, the winningest coach in college baseball history, is out after 20 seasons at Texas. The decision Monday comes after the Longhorns' first losing season since 1998. Texas will miss the NCAA postseason for the third time in five years. The university said in a statement Monday the 77-year-old Garrido was "relinquishing his duties" as coach and will become special assistant to athletic director Mike Perrin. Garrido, who had one year left on a contract that paid him nearly $1.1 million, had said he wouldn't resign and wanted to stay. "Augie has long been among the best coaches in college athletics, an exceptional developer of young men, great leader and tremendous representative of our

Oklahoma State coach Josh Holliday took a business approach to the revealing of the NCAA Tournament bracket, knowing his team was safely in the field and knowing OSU would be on the road somewhere. With little drama other than the locale, Holliday preferred an escape from the drama the commentators would be presenting and an opportunity to work on improving after a 1-2 showing at the Big 12 Tournament. “Somebody came out and yelled, ‘It’s Clemson,’” Holliday said. “Everyone went,
