first_imgRelatedPosts Fulham keen on Lookman loan deal Pirlo not out to copy anyone after Juventus’ comfortable opening win EPL: Calvert-Lewin treble fires Everton past West Brom Carlo Ancelotti has reached an agreement in principle to become the next Everton manager, Sky Sports News understands. Negotiations between Everton and Ancelotti progressed well following the Italian’s arrival on Merseyside earlier on Monday. It is understood confirmation of Ancelotti succeeding Marco Silva could be announced before Wednesday’s Carabao Cup quarter-final against Leicester. Ancelotti remains one of the finest and most decorated managers in world football, despite his recent struggles with Bayern Munich and Napoli. He bowed out in Naples on the back of a 4-0 win in the Champions League against Genk, but it was the club’s poor form in Serie A – they were seventh when he was axed – and a squad mutiny with owner Aurelio de Laurentiis that cost him his job. Meanwhile, the club confirmed that Duncan Ferguson will lead the team for Wednesday’s Carabao Cup quarter-final against Leicester but it remains uncertain how much longer the club legend will continue to fill in.Tags: Carlo AncelottiEvertonMarco Silvalast_img read more

Ree finished the tournament tied for 17th overall with a final score of 4-under.“[Ree] has a great way about her — she’s a fast player, and she’s a smart player,” Gaston said. “She made some really solid adjustments out there and boom, she ended up shooting a 5-under for us.”The Women of Troy’s top-scorer in the tournament was redshirt senior Victoria Morgan, who finished at 7-under; this score tied her for eighth overall in the tournament’s individual leaderboard.“[Our team] knew that if we each individually just played our own games, then we had a chance to win,” Morgan said.  “We all believed in ourselves, but [when we actually won], there was a feeling of utter surprise … I’ve been playing here for four years, and we’ve never come back like this, and I don’t think I’ve seen any other team come back like this.”All five USC golfers finished in the top 25 of the player leaderboard at ANNIKA this week.A 4-under performance from senior Karen Chung in the final round Tuesday propelled her to a 25th-place finish overall in the tournament (-2).

first_imgTEMPE, Ariz. — As a rookie, Patrick Peterson made his first Pro Bowl due to his prowess as a punt returner. The cornerback out of LSU returned 44 punts for 699 yards and four touchdowns, which tied an NFL single-season record. His numbers as a returner have declined each of the last two seasons, though, and as Peterson’s worth as a cornerback has grown, the team’s desire to have him return kicks has decreased. And now, following what was a season-ending injury to Tyrann Mathieu while returning a kick last year along with the offseason additions of Ted Ginn, Jr. and rookie John Brown, it appears his time playing anywhere but on defense may be coming to an end.“We’d like to ease that up a little bit anyway, just because of what happened to Tyrann and let him just focus on taking out receivers and doing his job there,” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Friday. “But, also, he’s still dynamic enough to do it. “His wide receiver days might be over.”Peterson was targeted eight times in the passing game last season, producing six catches for 54 yards.When he was drafted, the Cardinals needed the speed as a returner. Last season, they needed it in the passing game. Peterson provided both.But with the additions of Ginn, who has amassed 7,767 yards and six touchdowns as a returner in the NFL and now Brown, who averaged 11.5 yards per punt return and 32.4 yards per kick return last season at Pittsburg State, it appears the Cardinals can get by without using their top cornerback anywhere but on the opponent’s best receiver. – / 22 The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Comments   Share   last_img read more
