With the end of the world championship today, we’ll take a break from games … although there’s still a ton left up in the air about the WNBA.
Coaching jobs open in Chicago, New York and San Antonio. What appeared to be (finally) a great GM/coach collaboration with ownership in Washington now broken up with Angela Taylor and the Mystics not reaching agreement on a new contract … or maybe the Mystics just deciding they really do prefer a lack of stability. It was nice while it lasted, I guess.
The continual expansion talks about certain cities, which at this point still seems just talk to me. Some concern about Chicago as a franchise. And the official start of college practice is right around the corner, of course.
So, I will continue to do the weekly ESPN.com chat on Thursdays at 1 p.m. Central time. I also will soon be starting a new duty at ESPN.com, which is planned to be a twice-weekly look at college sports outside of football and basketball. That will be on ESPN.com’s college sports page, which has expert contributors such as Graham Hays (women’s soccer), Dave Reed (women’s volleyball), Sheldon Shealer (men’s soccer) and Brion O’Connor (hockey).
And I’ll continue to post things on this blog … although, they won’t always necessarily have to do with sports. But somehow, I usually make a connection.
