Phil Jackson to ... New Jersey?

Jeanie Buss in a recent interview says, "I know Phil will be coaching next year, somewhere," and, "There's going to be a lot of good jobs that come up this summer." So is this merely a ploy by Buss to get her father, Laker owner Jerry Buss, to pony up some more cash for the 64-year-old Hall of Famer? When Jeanie Buss mentions the glut of good jobs opening this summer, could she perhaps be alluding to one in New Jersey? (Los Angeles Times) Comment

The best Seahawk calls it a career

The last remaining Seahawk to play in the Kingdome called it a career Thursday -- but it's not the end that most fans will remember. Not the final game he played at Dallas in November 2008 after suffering a knee injury. Not the two surgeries and 17 months of uncertainty that followed. Jones, 36, will be remembered for the 12 seasons he played, the nine Pro Bowl selections and the unsurpassed dominance that preceded the injury. "A great teammate," quarterback Matt Hasselbeck said. "A pro. A guy you can count on. That's what Walt was. A great teammate, it just happened to be that he was also the best player on the team." Maybe the best player in this franchise's history.

One guess a four-division 16-team Big Ten

A 16-team Big Ten could have four "pods" and include Nebraska -- and Tom Osborne's blessing. The Huskers are a football giant, the school is an AAU member in good standing, and from a television perspective, the Big Ten could lock up Omaha and Lincoln while even extending its reach into the Kansas City and Denver markets. In fact, if the league could lure Kansas into the equation along with Missouri, it'd own the Kansas City and Wichita markets as well. (Des Moines Register) Comment
