Belichick named AP Coach of the Year

Patriots coach Bill Belichick was named the Associated Press Coach of the Year Wednesday night. It is the third time Belichick has been honored as a head coach — he also won the award in 2003 and 2007.

 

“It’s a tribute to our ownership, our assistant coaches and certainly the players,” Belichick said in an interview with the NFL Network after he won the award. “They’re the ones who’ve stepped up and made the plays this year. We had a lot of new people on the team, young players that contributed, and it’s certainly an honor to receive this award on behalf of our performance in the regular season. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to carry that over into the playoffs.”

Belichick guided the Patriots to an NFL-best 14-2 record in 2010. He became the first head coach ever to win at least 14 regular-season games in four separate seasons (2003: 14-2, 2004: 14-2, 2007: 16-0 and...

Spaziani: 'We feel we're back on track'

Boston College football coach Frank Spaziani received no surprises on signing day Wednesday, as all 23 players who verbally committed to the Eagles signed letters of intent.

 

"Signing day is always a day of optimism and excitement," Spaziani said on a conference call Wednesday afternoon. "We're no different than anybody else. Were excited about the 23 players we signed."

 

Spaziani completed his second season as head coach, and he explained that it's been a challenge to get things back in order following the surprising departure of Jeff Jagodzinski in 2009 after just two seasons.

 

"When I took over the job, we had spacing issues that we had to address, and we've been doing that in the last two years," he said. "We've addressed some of our needs, so we're excited about it. We feel we're back on track."

 

Spaziani explained what the...

Pedroia eager to 'open a can of whoop-ass'

Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia, in the final offseason installment of the Laser Show, said that he is eager to head to Fort Myers for spring training next week in order to "get focused on opening a can of whoop-ass."

 

"It's been a while. I've never been this excited," Pedroia said of the prospect of getting to Fort Myers. "Everyone's obviously excited with the team we're going to have. ... Just going out there and going to work, I can't wait."

 

He added that he has felt as if the Sox were positioned to compete for a World Series in each of his spring trainings, but that "this year, it seems like it's a little bit different because there's so much talk about who we got in the offseason." With the additions of Carl Crawford, Adrian Gonzalez and new relievers such as Bobby Jenks and Dan Wheeler, Pedroia announced his excitement for the prospects of the 2011 club.

Milbury: Thomas having all-time great season

NESN hockey analyst Mike Milbury made his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show Wednesday. Milbury gave his thoughts on the Marc Savard situation, as recent reports have suggested that the center might be shut down for the season as he continues to experience symptoms from a moderate concussion he suffered after a clean hit to the head from Colorado's Matt Hunwick on January 22.

 

"All the signals [regarding the health of Savard] have been mixed at best," said Milbury. "He's got to look at this for the long term. We all know that it would be great to have him back and healthy, but if he's not 100 percent sure that he can get it right and get it safely right they have to consider the alternatives. And really it [missing the rest of the season] seems logical."

 

If Savard is in fact placed on the long-term injury list, does Milbury see a scenario where the Bruins might make a high-impact...

Goodell: BB 'deceived' me with no apology

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell reveals in this week’s edition of “Sports Illustrated” that he wanted Patriots coach Bill Belichick to make a verbal apology in front of the press in the wake of the 2007 video scandal, and when Belichick didn’t, he felt “deceived.”

Goodell fined Belichick $500,000 and the team $250,000 and deducted a first-round draft pick for secretly videotaping an opposing team’s coaching signals. Owner Robert Kraft thought the penalty too severe, but Goodell told Kraft that, as part of the disciplinary action, Belichick also must make a verbal apology in front of the press. Instead the coach issued a printed statement that contained an apology and refused to answer any questions on the topic.

“I was given assurances that [Belichick] would tell his side of the story,” Goodell says. “He went out and stonewalled the press. I feel like I was deceived.”...
