Stackhouse Ready For Coaching

Interesting tidbit from The Journal Times on the possible future plans of former Tar Heel Jerry Stackhouse.  Another former Buck, Jerry Stackhouse, may be on the brink of wrapping up his fine 16-year pro career to pursue a career in coaching, either in the pros or college. Stackhouse, who is playing for Atlanta, has had the distinction of playing for several coaching greats, including Dean Smith, Larry Brown, Rick Carlisle, Doug Collins and Don Nelson. “I’m trying to transition into the next phase of my career,” Stackhouse said before a recent Bucks’ game at the Bradley Center. “I definitely want to be a head coach some day and I’m willing to pay my dues to make it happen.” Under normal circumstances this would be a noteworthy “Stackhouse wants to be [...]

Brett Favre Stays Off IR, May Be Ready to Throw Picks Against the Bears

It’s hard to keep a purple-handed gunslinger down.  And for the record, that thing is just gross—major props to Pam Oliver for not running in horror at the site of Favre’s grotesquely discolored hand.
