Former University of Maryland football head coach DJ Durkin was fired in November following an investigation into the death of Terrapin lineman Jordan McNair. This week, Alabama head coach Nick Saban reportedly brought Durkin on as a "consultant." Julie DiCaro, sports writer and host at Chicago's 670 The Score, weighs in.

Also, the NFL announced changes to the Rooney Rule, which requires that teams interview diverse applicants for front office and head coaching positions. Professor Kenneth Shropshire, CEO at Arizona State University's Global Sport Institute, explains the new measures.

And Los Angeles Lakers guard Josh Hart just can't seem to figure out high fives. Only A Game's Karen Given sympathizes.
