Nico Rosberg goes out on top: Rosberg won the Formula One World Championship when he finished second at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix over the weekend. He has announced that the title was his life's ambition, and he is therefore retiring immediately from racing.
The Hot Seat is just lukewarm now: The annual firing of college football coaches got off to an early start this year with LSU's Les Miles not surviving September, but the ascension of Interim Coach Ed Orgeron tamped down a lot of the possible juggling of lower-tier coaching jobs. Ditto the rapid fire-and-hire of Charlie Strong and Tom Herman at Texas. Oregon let go of Mark Helfrich (the first time the Ducks have fired a coach since 1976), and the Notre Dame-Brian Kelly relationship is said to be strained, but it looks like there won't be a high-profile Harbaugh-to-Michigan type story to keep football writers working through December this year. (Incidentally, CoachesHotSeat.com is for sale.)
Strong Out, Herman In (probably): Charlie Strong was officially fired today as head coach of the University of Texas Longhorns, and sources immediately started saying that the contract is all but signed for Texas to hire Tom Herman, currently head coach of the University of Houston Cougars. Herman started his coaching career at UT and has been the UH coach for just two years, going 13-1 in his first season with a bowl win over Florida State.
NHL's Newest Team: The Vegas Golden Knights: That's not the Las Vegas Golden Knights, mind you. It's just "Vegas".
Jurgen Klinsmann Out as U.S. Men's Soccer Coach: The losses to Mexico and Costa Rica to start this round of World Cup qualifying have led to Jurgen Klinsmann's ouster as the U.S. Men's National Team coach. Talks are rumored about Bruce Arena leaving the L.A. Galaxy to take over the team again.
