Ex-BC coach Jagodzinski gets UFL job

Former Boston College football coach Jeff Jagodzinski has been named head coach of the new United Football League team in Nebraska. The 46-year-old Jagodzinski spent two seasons at BC and was fired a year ago after interviewing for an NFL job. He landed a job as the offensive coordinator with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but was fired in September.

 

"This is what I do," Jagodzinski told the Omaha World-Herald. "This is what I've been doing my whole life. Getting an opportunity to run a team again is great."

Cameron scratched, Hermida in

Red Sox center fielder Mike Cameron was a late scratch from Thursday's lineup due to a lower abdominal strain. He was replaced in the lineup by Jeremy Hermida, who will play left field.

 

Bill Hall, initially in the lineup in left, will slide over to center field. Hall was the everyday center fielder for the Brewers in 2007, but has played just one game in center since then.

 

Here is the revised Red Sox lineup:

 

Scutaro, 6

Pedroia, 4

Martinez, 2

Youkilis, 3

Beltre, 5

Lowell, DH

Drew, 9

Hall, 8

Hermida, 7

 

SP -- Wakefield

 

TWINS

 

Span, 8

Hudson, 4

Mauer, 2

Morneau, 3

Cuddyer, 9

Thome, DH

Kubel, 7

Hardy, 6

Punto, 5

 

SP -- Liriano

Lowell in, Ortiz sits for Twins finale

With the Red Sox facing Twins left-hander Francisco Liriano, David Ortiz will get the day off in Thursday's series finale, replaced in the lineup by Mike Lowell. Liriano has held lefties to a .228 average and .602 OPS in his career, against marks of .250/.743 against righties. For that same reason, Bill Hall will be in the lineup in left field against Liriano (rather than the injured Jacoby Ellsbury or primary outfield backup Jeremy Hermida).

 

RED SOX

 

Scutaro, 6

Pedroia, 4

Martinez, 2

Youkilis, 3

Beltre, 5

Lowell, DH

Drew, 9

Cameron, 8

Hall, 7

 

SP -- Wakefield

Durant: Celtics, Lakers 'disrespectful'

Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant, who wrapped up the NBA scoring title Wednesday night, responded to comments from the coach of the Thunder's first-round playoff opponent by calling them "disrespectful." In comments that should sound familiar to Celtics fans, Lakers coach Phil Jackson said Durant gets preferential treatment from officials. Responded Durant: "Ever since [Kevin Garnett] said something, everybody's been questioning how I get to the line. If you watch our games, you wouldn't question it. the NBA should put us on national TV more, I guess."

 

Durant said Jackson's comments fired him up more. "Because it’s taking away from what I do,” Durant said. "That’s a part of my game, getting to the free throw line and being aggressive. If you say that I get superstar calls or I get babied by the refs, that’s just taking away from how I play. That’s disrespectful...

Rivers on D&C: 'I love it here'

Celtics coach Doc Rivers joined the Dennis & Callahan show Thursday morning to talk about the upcoming playoffs and the discussion about his future. Rivers addressed a report that he is considering not returning to the team next season. He said the story was completely overblown, although the facts were ultimately correct. "Yeah, but it would have been fact-based three years ago, too, and last year, and the year before," he said. "Every year I go through the same thing, and at this point I'm at the same place I was last year and two years ago. I sit back after the season, and you guys probably understand this: You can't make a decision of any kind -- a good one -- when you're in the middle of something. I don't think about it. I try not to give it a lot of thought because of that."

 

Added Rivers: "I love it here. I can't get a better situation. I work with a GM in Danny [Ainge] and owners who allow me...
