Oregon State WR decides to hang up the cleats

0 Comments

Following a decent, yet oft-injured career at Oregon State, wide receiver Jordan Bishop has decided to hang up the cleats for good, the school announced in a press release Thursday evening.

Bishop, a two-sport athlete in football and track, has been dealing with lingering injuries with his ankles and feet. He would have had one year of eligibility remaining and was listed atop the post-spring depth chart at slotback.

“It’s disappointing that Jordan will not be able to play his senior season,” coach Mike Riley said in a prepared statement. “He has been a tremendous team member and will always be a part of Beaver Nation. I wish him the best in what will be surely a successful professional career of his choosing.”

Bishop (pictured, No. 23) was productive during the three years in which he lettered in football with OSU. He concludes his 34-game career, in which he had 12 starts, with 66 receptions for 893 yards and four touchdowns. He will graduate this summer.

The school also announced the departures of the following players: receivers Geno Munoz and Tyler Trosin; corner Keynan Parker;  quarterback Jack Lomax; and linebackers Cade Cowdin,  Zeke Sanders, and Will Storey. 

Reports: Miami hiring Lance Guidry from Tulane as DC

Miami is hiring Lance Guidry, who was defensive coordinator at Marshall last season and recently accepted the same position at Tulane, to lead its defense, two people with knowledge of the decision told The Associated Press.

The people spoke on condition of anonymity because a deal was still being finalized between Guidry and Miami.

The 51-year-old Louisiana native was hired way from Marshall by Tulane just last month. Now he’ll replace Kevin Steele on Mario Cristobal‘s staff at Miami. Steele is reportedly on his way to Alabama to become Nick Saban‘s defensive coordinator after holding that position for one season with the Hurricanes.

Alabama has yet to make the hiring of Steele and offensive coordinator Tommy Rees official. Rees had been assistant at Notre Dame.

Tulane announced the hiring of Guidry on Jan. 23 to replace Chris Hampton, who left the New Orleans-based school to join Oregon’s staff as an assistant coach.

Guidry’s defenses at Marshall ranked third in the nation in yards per play this season (4.56) and 26th nationally in 2021 (5.14 ypp).

Iowa-Northwestern set for Wrigley Field in November

CHICAGO — Wrigley Field will host a college football game for the third time since 2010 when Iowa plays Northwestern next season.

Northwestern and the Chicago Cubs announced that the Wildcats’ home game will be played Nov. 4.

Northwestern played Illinois at Wrigley in 2010 in the MLB ballpark’s first college football game since 1938, and the Wildcats hosted Purdue there in 2021.

Wrigley Field has a long history of hosting football games. The Chicago Bears played there from 1921 to 1970 before moving to Soldier Field. The old Chicago Cardinals also played at Wrigley, as well as DePaul until its program folded in 1939.

Northwestern had been scheduled to play Wisconsin at Wrigley in 2020, but the game was moved to Ryan Field in Evanston because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
