Don’t Expect Browns To Fill Coordinator Job Quickly

CBS Cleveland

CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – It’s been a week since Kyle Shanahan and the Browns decided it’d be best if he took his talents elsewhere but the search for his replacement doesn’t appear to be nearing a conclusion any time soon.

At least 9 names have been linked to the Browns since Shanahan’s departure but head coach Mike Pettine is in no rush to make a decision so quickly without turning over every stone imaginable.

While it would be easy to say that the Browns constant turnover is the reason for the amount of time the search may or may not take, it is not reality. With his first coordinator lasting less than a full calendar year, Pettine wants to make sure he gets this hire right.

James’ 33 In Return Not Enough, Cavs Lose Sixth Straight

CBS Cleveland

PHOENIX (AP) — LeBron James scored 33 points in his return from a two-week layoff but it wasn’t enough to prevent the Cleveland Cavaliers from going down to their sixth straight loss, 107-100 to the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night.

Markieff Morris scored a career-high 35 points on 15-of-21 shooting for the Suns, who outscored the Cavs 11-3 over the last 3:31.

The Cavaliers rallied from a 19-point, third-quarter deficit to go ahead in the fourth, the first of eight lead changes down the stretch.

J.R. Smith, who joined the Cavaliers during James’ absence, scored 29, going 8 of 14 on 3-pointers.

James, who took the time off to rest his sore left foot and lower back, made 11 of 18 shots, 6 of 8 in the second half.

The Cavaliers were 1-7 in James’ absence and have lost nine of 10 overall to fall below .500 at 19-20.

CBS Cleveland

DALLAS (AP) — Ohio State and Oregon will meet in a game that has never been played for a trophy that has never been raised.

The winner Monday night in North Texas can be called the truest champion in the history of major college football.

The first College Football Playoff national championship game matches the second-seeded Ducks and fourth-seeded Buckeyes at AT&T Stadium.

“It’s college football history,” Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said Sunday during a news conference with Oregon coach Mark Helfrich, with that new championship trophy sitting in between them.

The days of bowls, polls and the BCS having the final say about who is No. 1 are over. The playoff that fans wanted for so long — and finally got — will determine a single champion.

Oregon (13-1) and its Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Marcus Mariota are in search of the program’s first national title, the last remaining…
