Jordan Grady PSAC West Frosh of Week


LOCK HAVEN, Pa. — Slippery Rock University men’s basketball forward Jordan Grady was named Thursday as the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference Western Division Freshman of the Week for his performance in the Dec. 30 blowout win over Ohio University Eastern.

Grady, the younger brother of assistant coach Ian Grady and, like his brother a first-team Times-News All-Area selection at Allegany High School, earned his first collegiate honor after posting career highs in scoring, rebounding and minutes played.

The 6-foot-4 forward played 21 minutes and registered his first career double-double in the 122-60 win over Ohio Eastern. He finished with a team-high 12 rebounds to go along with 11 points on 5-of-11 shooting. He also handed out two assists and recorded one steal.

Grady has appeared in eight games this season, more than any other freshman on the roster, and leads all Rock freshmen in total points, rebounds and made field goals.

Slippery Rock has jumped out to a 10-3 overall record and a 7-2 mark in PSAC action to open the season.

Mike McCoy agrees to become Chargers coach

SAN DIEGO — Mike McCoy is the new head coach of the San Diego Chargers.

The 40-year-old McCoy, who had been the offensive coordinator for the Denver Broncos, replaces Norv Turner, who was fired along with general manager A.J. Smith after the Chargers finished 7-9 and missed the playoffs for the third straight season.

McCoy’s hiring comes three days after the top-seeded Broncos were eliminated from the playoffs in a home loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

The coaching search was led by Tom Telesco, who was hired as Chargers GM last week. Telesco also is 40.

The Broncos have won consecutive AFC West titles. McCoy tutored quarterbacks Kyle Orton and Tim Tebow in 2011, and Peyton Manning in 2012.
