That left arguably the biggest head coaching position in the entire sport open, and set in motion a coaching search that included many names over the past 12 days.

Tim Happel has become accustomed to delivering disappointment.As the head athletic trainer at Howard Community College in Columbia, Happel has often had the unenviable assignment of informing an athlete that an injury has delayed or ended his or her season.

The 2020 NFL Draft wrapped up on Saturday after three days of action. And while Bill Belichick didn’t draft anyone with a lacrosse background, there were still some mentions of lacrosse during the draft.

Also, Notre Dame defensive end Jamir Jones, who signed with the Houston Texans as a UFA on Saturday night, played both in high school as well at Aquinas Institute (N.Y.).
