Today in sports: Baylor basketball coach Scott Drew is unloved by his peers, the Buffalo Bills have made Mario Williams one of the richest players in NFL history, and Daniel Snyder and Jerry Jones are mulling a lawsuit against the NFL.
New York Knicks owner/messer-upper James Dolan apparently would very much like to hire Phil Jackson to replace freshly-resigned head coach Mike D'Antoni. Jackson won nine NBA titles as coach of the Lakers and Bulls and played for the Knicks for 11 years, so hypothetically, he would be a perfect fit. But he's also 66-years-old, the proud owner of a prosthetic hip, and rich enough to be able to pick-and-choose when it comes to a possible return to the sideline. Plus, the Knicks have tried and failed to hire Jackson on two previous occasions. None of which means it can't happen this time. We're just saying Knick fans shouldn't get their hopes up.

Baylor University men's basketball Scott Drew is a bad man. Well not bad, per se: he's just disliked by his peers in the coaching fraternity because he's an aggressive recruiter and "a bench coach who can’t get out of his own way." Which you think would make the other coaches happy, but it doesn't. Nobody seems to want to go on the record about exactly it is they dislike about Drew, but apparently he's been known to tell recruits how many malls there are in Waco (two) and bring up Google Maps to show them the Branch Dividian Compound was not particularly close to campus. Yup, that Scott Drew sounds like a real monster. [The Washington Post]
