    Sports News - 252nd Edition - Kobe & Gianna Bryant - Colorado Karl Dorrell Head Coach




    Death of Kobe Bryant and 8 others in a Horrific Helicopter Crash
    On January 26th, 2020, the great Kobe Bryant, who some consider the GOAT, died in a helicopter crash with seven others in Calabasas, California, on a trip to a basketball practice game with his daughter. Casualties included everyone on the trip, including his thirteen-year-old daughter, Gianna, two of her teammates and their parents, her coach, and the pilot. Reports show that the death was the result of blunt force trauma, and they were traveling to the Mamba Sports Academy, located at Thousand Oaks, for a basketball game. The helicopter ended up crashing thirty miles northwest from downtown Los Angeles. The helicopter was seen to descend at over 2000 feet a minute, which is extremely fast. L.A. weather during that day was also extremely foggy, so LAPD air support was grounded because of that reason. As a result, no one from the flight survived the crash. The helicopter

    TMZ was the first news source to release this information, leading to many people who doubted the news as a prank. Eventually, as other mainstream media started to report the same news, it was evident that something had happened to Kobe Bryant and the other people on the helicopter. Eventually, people came to the conclusion that it really had happened. Many famous basketball stars such as Michael Jordan, Shaquille O’Neal, and other of Kobe’s former teammates also commented on his passing. A game for the Lakers was also moved in terms of the date, and people came together to a moment of prayer during the game at the Mamba Academy. There were also multiple interviews and statements from friends of Kobe after the passing, and everyone felt distraught after the event. In addition, he had a memorial, and his wife, Vanessa Bryant, has filed a lawsuit against the owner of the helicopter from the crash. The pilot’s estate was also sued during this time, and the executors of his estate now have to deal with the aftermath of his death and also the lawsuit.

    Colorado hires Karl Dorrell from Dolphins as next head coach
    Karl Dorrell hired as Colorado Buffalo’s next coach. He has been signed to a five-year deal worth $18 million USD. The previous coach, Mel Tucker, will now become the head coach at Michigan State. Dorrell has actually also worked at CU before as an offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach during the season from 1992-1993 and 1995-1998. Dorrell claims CU has the potential for a top-tier team and that he’s sure he can return the Buffalo’s to a top tier team. Previously, Dorrell has been the head coach at UCLA for four years, from 2003 to 2007. During this time, the Bruins went to the bowl five times, and he ended up being fired in 2007 for unknown reasons, even though the Bruins reached a bowl game during that time. Kanas City Chiefs’ Bieniemy, an offensive coordinator, was also a candidate for this job, but he withdrew his application earlier this week. Dorrell has been a receivers coach from 2015-2019, with 2015-2018 for the Jets and 2019 for the Dolphins. His last stint as a college coach was for Vanderbilt as an offensive coordinator in 2014. The Dolphins actually promoted Dorrell to assistant head coach this week, but Dorrell wanted to become a head coach again so decided to take the position at CU. Dorrell’s salary would be a starting base of 3.2 million with an increase of 200 thousand a year. There will also be a salary pool of 3.8 million for assistant coaches. The reason why Dorrell was hired is that CU has recently been searching for NFL coaches. CU also contacted Bielema from the New York Giants and Greg Roman from the Baltimore Ravens. Bielema was an assistant coach while Roman was an offensive coordinator. Troy Calhoun was also contacted, and Darrin Chiaverini was the temporary head coach during CU’s search for a new head coach.
