BC AD DeFilippo announces retirement

Boston College athletic director Gene DeFilippo announced his retirement Friday afternoon, effective Sept. 30. Senior associate athletics director John Kane will serve as interim director until a successor is named.

“My wife Anne and I have been discussing this decision for some time and we agree that this is the right time for me to retire,” DeFilippo said in a statement. “It is also the right time for Boston College to have new leadership in the athletics director’s position. In light of my recent bout with melanoma, which is treatable, this decision became clearer to me this summer. After the intensity of 40 years of intercollegiate athletics, this change will enable me to spend more time with Anne, my three children, and our granddaughter, Katherine. I look forward to this next stage of my personal and professional life.”

DeFilippo plans to teach courses in sports management and to work as a consultant following a...

Reports: Olympic sprinter Demps to join Pats

FOXBORO -- During his Friday press conference, Patriots personnel chief Nick Caserio would not confirm reports that Olympic sprinter Jeff Demps has a deal in place to join the Patriots. 

There were conflicting reports earlier in the day regarding the team and Demps, who played running back at the University of Florida but was not drafted in April. Tampa TV station Fox 13 reported Friday that Demps has agreed to join the Patriots over the Buccaneers, and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport tweeted that one of Demps' agents confirmed it. However, other outlets reported that no deal was in place after speaking with a Demps representative.

"There's no news to report," Caserio said. "We have our list of players, players that will be eligible for the draft and we evaluate those players."

Demps, 5-foot-7, 175 pounds, captured a silver medal for being part of the United States' 4x100-meter relay team at the London Olympics. He did...

Millar on M&M: Boston 'greatest place to play'

MLB Network analyst Kevin Millar joined Mut & Merloni on Friday morning and weighed in on the latest Red Sox controversy.

"This whole story, this whole stuff, this whole season's growing tiresome. It really is," the former Sox first baseman said. "There's a story every single week about something coming out."

Added Millar: "It's tiresome. I'm so sick of addressing Red Sox drama. I would love to see these men take the field with some passion and some love and some pride, and get their heads out of their you-know-what and fight for this playoff run. This season's not over, but the problem is we're so concerned about the next stupid story, the next guy that's walking in the clubhouse with a beer. Who cares? Somebody need to toe it up, though, and man up and cowboy up and get in the batter's box and drive a two-run double with two outs tonight. That's what's important, is this group finding a way to get back on track. But...

Fan dies after collapsing during Jays game

A fan collapsed and died during Thursday night's game between the Blue Jays and White Sox in Toronto. White Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis alerted umpires upon seeing a commotion in the stands, and the game was stopped for four minutes in the bottom of the seventh inning while the fan -- identified by the Toronto Star as a 60-year-old man -- received CPR and was taken out on a stretcher.

"It was not a good sight. It was bad. I could see the guy pumping on him, doing something where I just knew it was happening too long," Youkilis told reporters. "I said something to [umpire Mark Wegner] and finally I was like, 'We’ve got to stop this thing.'

"It puts it in perspective, you know? This is a game, it’s not life or death."

The game was halted and the fan was carted off through the left-...
