Report: FAU to hire Charlie Partridge as new head football coach

By John Evenson



The Florida Atlantic Owls are all set to hire Charlie Partridge as their new head football coach according to Dieter Kurtenbach of the Sun Sentinel, and the Plantation native could accept the offer as early as Sunday.


Partridge would be coming off the role of Arkansas' associate head coach this past season, and spent the previous five seasons before that at Wisconsin. He has a strong reputation for recruiting South Florida talent, which would be a strong point for the Owls heading into their second season in Conference U.S.A.


Partridge would replace Carl Pelini as permanent head coach, who resigned mid-season after allegations surfaced of illegal drug use.

UNDATED (AP) -- In the lone day game in baseball today, the Cubs are home to the Reds. The pitching matchup has Alfredo Simon going for Cincinnati with Jeff Samardzija (suh-MAHR'-juh) toeing the rubber for the Cubs. Record-wise, the Reds are 6-9 while the Cubs are 4-10.

The busy schedule of evening games is led by a good pitching match in Washington as the Nationals entertain the Cardinals.

The remaining games feature the Brewers in Pittsburgh, Cleveland hosting Toronto, the Angels in Detroit, Boston at home to the Orioles, the Braves in New York to face the Mets, the Rays entertaining the Yankees, Seattle at Miami, the White Sox at Texas, Kansas City home to Minnesota, the Phillies at Colorado, Houston at Oakland, L.A.'s Dodgers home to Arizona and the Giants in San Diego.

NHL PLAYOFFS-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- Three more Stanley Cup playoff games are being played this evening and in Boston the Bruins, the top seed in the Eastern Conference, start play with a game against Detroit. The Red Wings finished the regular season as the eighth seed in the East. During the regular season the Wings won three of the four games the teams played. The last time these teams met in the playoffs was way back in 1957 when Dwight Eisenhower was president and Elvis Presley was buying Graceland at the age of 22.

The other two games are the second in those series. Montreal took the first game against the Lightning 5-4 in overtime and tonight they play Game 2 in Tampa, while in Anaheim the Ducks look to go up 2-0 against Dallas after winning the opening game 4-3.

NBA PLAYOFFS

UNDATED (AP) -- The National Basketball Association gets back to business tomorrow with the start of the playoffs. Four games will take place with Brooklyn playing at Toronto, Golden State is in Los Angeles to face the Clippers, Atlanta's playing at Indiana and Memphis is at Oklahoma City.
