Trufant Signs with Seahawks

Former Coug and Pro-Bowl cornerback Marcus Trufant reaches a contract extension with the Seahawks for 6 years, $50.2 million. I will now be able to purchase my #23 jersey with confidence this fall.

Harmeling, Cowgill, and Rochestie among five Cougars on the Pac-10 all-acadmic first and second teams. Half of the 10 players on the all-academic teams are Cougs. Think about that for a second.

David Stern rejects idea of KeyArena renovation plan. I have lost all respect for the commissioner and how the NBA is run at this point. I am terrified by the thought of the Sonics drafting Kyle Weaver.

Ben Braun fired by California. Braun was successful at Cal with five NCAA tournament births, but was done in by the fact the Bears haven’t made the dance since 2003. This shouldn’t come as a huge surprise; I was going to do a Pac-10 coaches’ job security ranking post but was sidetracked (as I should have been) by the Cougs’ season. Here’s how I ranked the coaches in terms of security, with #1 being the most secure and #11 (I included Arizona “interim” coach Kevin O’Neill) being the most likely to be fired.

1. Lute Olson
2. Ben Howland
3. Tony Bennett
4. Lorenzo Romar
5. Trent Johnson
6. Tim Floyd
7. Herb Sendek
8. Ernie Kent
9. Kevin O’Neill
10. Ben Braun
11. Kevin Mouton

Already 10 has been fired, and it can be assumed 9 and 11 won’t be back (Lute Olson plans on returning to the Wildcats and Oregon State will likely go another direction). Ernie Kent rumors are swirling for what seems like the 10th consecutive year. Number 7 and above are safe.
