Schefter: Pats hire ND's Brown

During his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the Patriots hired ex-Notre Dame defensive coordinator and former Patriots safety Corwin Brown, likely to coach New England's defensive backs. Prior to coaching at ND, Brown coached the Jets defensive backs for three seasons (2004-06). He was drafted by the Patriots out of Michigan in 1993 and played four seasons for Bill Parcells before spending two years each with the Jets and Lions.


Schefter also said he would not be surprised if the team does not announce a new defensive coordinator to replace Dean Pees (now in Baltimore), instead leaving the coaching staff as is, without formally making any of the assistants in charge of the defense. "I don't believe that ultimately they'll wind up going to a defensive coordinator," Schefter said. "I think they probably are set with what they have right now."

Red Sox sign catcher Gustavo Molina

The Red Sox signed catcher Gustavo Molina to a minor league contract. The 27-year-old Molina -- who is no relation to the catching brothers Javier, Bengie, and Yadier Molina -- spent last season in the Washington Nationals organization, playing in 72 games for Triple-A Syracuse.

Lewis' layup does in Celtics

Rashard Lewis' layup with 1.3 seconds gave the Magic a 96-94 win over the Celtics Thursday night in Orlando. The Magic had trailed by as many as 16 points before battling back. Rasheed Wallace's 3-point attempt at the buzzer was well off the mark, leaving the Celts with their second loss in three tries against the Magic this season. Ray Allen paced the C's with 20 points, while Wallace chipped with 17. Lewis led all scorers with 23 points, while his teammate Dwight Howard poured in 11 fourth-quarter points on his way to 19 points and 10 rebounds.

Wilfork: Return to Florida a 'dream'

Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork said Thursday that getting a chance to play in his home state of Florida again would be “a dream come true.”

Wilfork, who just finished the final year of a six-year contract, is upset with the state of his current contractual situation, and told WEEI as much earlier this week. And the Florida native took it up a notch when he told Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel Thursday that two fruitless years of trying to negotiate an extension in New England have left him pondering the idea of playing for Miami or Tampa Bay.

“We’ve been waiting for two years. Been trying to talk for two years. I did all the things I could do. Did all the right things to the point people questioned me why I did it. Why I was the good soldier. Why I playing through...
