Sam Farrell was not necessarily looking for a coaching job when she was hired in January to lead the South River girls lacrosse team, just weeks after former Seahawks coach Kim McNemar stepped down. Farrell, a Severna Park graduate who played at Florida, said Thursday she wasn't necessarily looking for her most recent opportunity, either. After one season coaching South River, Farrell decided this week to join San Diego-based Mad Dog Lacrosse as a camp director and coach.

Former Oriole Luke Scott was cut from his Korean baseball team, SK Wyverns, Wednesday after reportedly calling his coach, Lee Man-soo, a “liar” and a “coward” in a public confrontation, according to Korean media reports. The Korea Times reported that Scott was put on the reserve team - presumably the disabled list equivalent in Korea - because of plantar fasciitis, and when he went to the clubhouse to gather things from his locker, the confrontation began. After he called out his coach in front of everyone, Scott went straight to reporters to explain his gripes.

After the New York Jets minicamp wrapped up in June, coach Rex Ryan was asked which players stood out to him during the three minicamp practices. Former Maryland cornerback Dexter McDougle was the second player he mentioned. “I think you saw a little bit of why we're so excited about him and optimistic about him,” Ryan told reporters. “He is physical. He's able to press and get both hands on you in press. He'll compete, and I think those are things that we were looking to see and I think we saw today. All of us saw it.” McDougle, the Jets' third-round pick in this year's NFL draft, missed the first two of the Jets' three organized team activities (OTAs)
