- Penn State hired former Fordham head coach Joe Moorhead as their new offensive coordinator. Moorhead will replace John Donovan, who was fired the day after the team lost its season finale tat Michigan State.
- The Philadelphia 76ers are discussing adding Mike D'Antonio as associate head coach. D'Antonio could join the staff sometime within the next week or so.
- Jose Aldo entered UFC 194 at 25-1 (7-0 UFC), and made his 8th defense of the UFC featherweight title and had a 18-fight win streak. But it was Conor McGregor who left as the new undisputed featherweight champion with a victory in just 13 seconds.
All I can say is, it was a two hit fight, McGregor hit Aldo and Aldo hit the ground. McGregor's 15-fight win streak is intact and hasn’t lost since November 2010. Aldo hadn’t lost for 10 years, since losing a lightweight fight in Brazil in 2005, and he was widely regarded as the sport’s best fighter. But there is going to be a new entrant in that discussion.
