Texas AD Dodds to step down

Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds will announce his retirement on Tuesday, according to multiple reports.

Dodds, 76, will step down in August after 32 years on the job.

His last day on the job will be Aug. 31, 2014 and then he will stay on as a consultant for another year.

Kohl: New arena or no team in Milwaukee

BMO Harris Bradley Center turns 25 this month, and the arena no longer suits the needs of the NBA’s Milwaukee Bucks.

Owner Herb Kohl said Monday at the team’s media day session that he is confident the city will build a new arena after incoming NBA commissioner Adam Silver called the antiquated venue unfit for the Bucks.

Browns name Hoyer starter for Thursday’s game

BEREA, Ohio — Brian Hoyer is establishing himself as the undisputed starting quarterback for the Cleveland Browns after winning back to back starts against the Vikings and Bengals.

Brandon Weeden, the starter the first two games, lost his job because of a sprained thumb. He is throwing the ball again, and although Browns coach Rob Chudzinski has consistently said he will evaluate his quarterbacks and all positions week to week, it will be difficult going back to Weeden as long as Hoyer keeps winning.

Chudzinski said Monday that Hoyer is the starter.

Hoyer grew up in the Cleveland suburb of North Olmsted and went to Cleveland St. Ignatius High School. He had the pressure Sunday of playing in front of his hometown fans and responded with two touchdown passes in a 17-6 victory over the Bengals. He had a 103.9 passer rating.
