      As the Chiefs trudged to the end of another wretched season in 2012, a 2-14 fiasco, Andy Reid’s Philadelphia Eagles were on the way to a similarly miserable finish (4-12). Each team’s 2012 season, alas, was also underscored by off-field devastation: For the Chiefs, it was inextricably tethered to the horrifying murder of Kasi Perkins by linebacker Jovan Belcher and his subsequent suicide; ...

        DeMeco Ryans’ introduction as the Houston Texans coach brought him back to his early days as a 49ers assistant, and, specifically, to his mentorship of linebacker Fred Warner. That coach-player relationship molded both into the elite of their profession. After all, Ryans went from a 10-year NFL linebacker to an entry-level coach, to becoming a head coach after just two seasons as the 49ers’ ...

          The International Olympic Committee has stepped up efforts to explain its position on trying to help Russian athletes qualify for the Paris Games. It comes amid a backlash from Ukraine and its allies. The Olympic body last week mapped a pathway to Paris for athletes from Russia and Belarus who have not actively supported the war. That provoked powerful pushback from Ukraine, which wants to see those countries remain banned from most international sports. The IOC also says there's no plan for its president Thomas Bach to accept Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelenskyy's invitation to visit.

          Eric Gaines scored 21 points and UAB ended No. 19 Florida Atlantic's nation-best 20-game winning streak with an 86-77 victory. The Owls hadn't lost since falling 80-67 to Mississippi on Nov. 11 and made their debut in the AP Top 25 2 1/2 weeks ago. FAU fell to 21-2 on the season and 10-1 in Conference USA. Jordan "Jelly" Walker had 13 points and six assists for UAB in his return from a foot injury that had sidelined him since Jan. 11. Nick Boyd led Florida Atlantic with 18 points.

          After both teams started the season strong, the paths of No. 6 Virginia and unranked Virginia Tech diverged in January.

          Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon has been charged in a warrant with a misdemeanor count of aggravated menacing, according to online court records. WCPO-TV obtained a copy of the warrant and reported that Mixon was accused of pointing a gun at a woman and saying, "You should be popped in the face. I should shoot you, the police (can't) get me."

          In sports as in life, sometimes you have to wait. There is a reason the phrase credited to medieval English writer William Langland in his circa 1370s poem “Piers Plowman” is still said all these centuries later: Patience is a virtue. That it might be rewarded is its value. Especially when the reward is great enough. So the Miami Dolphins waited for Vic Fangio. And waited. And then won. A ...
