Michigan Football Coach Leaves for Los Angeles Chargers

The current of college football champions, the Michigan Wolverines, found themselves in a tough spot when now-former head coach Jim Harbaugh announced that he would be leaving the organization to return to coaching in the NFL with the Los Angeles Chargers. Harbaugh, who led the Wolverines to the championship this season, had been the head coach of the program since 2015 after he departed the San Francisco 49ers. Over the course of his time in Ann Arbor, Harbaugh had a record of 74–25.

Looking at the all-around success of the program, Michigan opted to hire from within, promoting Offensive Coordinator Sherron Moore to the role of head coach. Moore, who had been the offensive coordinator this past season, has been a coach in the organization since 2018. He previously served in the role of tight end coach, offensive line coach, co-offensive coordinator, and offensive coordinator. Sherron also served as interim head coach when coach Harbaugh was suspended. He won four games as interim head coach, including the season finale against Ohio State to win the Big Ten East Division Championship. He also played a key role in the College Football Playoff National Championship victory against Washington. Moore is the first Black football head coach for Michigan.

Team Matthews Wins NHL All-Star Game

The NHL All-Star Game 2024 took place Saturday, Feb. 3. The game was held in the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, marking the ninth time the city has hosted the event. As opposed to other All-Star Games like the NBA All-Star Game or the NFL’s Pro Bowl, the NHL All-Star Game is divided into four teams who compete in the semifinals to reach the final. The teams who play each other in the semi-finals are decided by whichever team wins the skills tournament previous to the games.

This year the teams were Team Hughes, Team Matthews, Team Mackinnon, and Team McDavid. The game itself was between Team McDavid and Team Matthews. Team Matthews took the victory 7–4. Team Matthews had a great roster of players like Auston Matthews (hence the name), Mitchel Marner, Morgan Rielly, and William Mylander. The team included Boston Bruins bench boss Jim Montgomery and Justin Bieber as a guest captain.
