Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reported that the Jacksonville Jaguars were close to adding Spielman to their front office.

(Photo by Wesley Hitt/Getty Images) The former Minnesota Vikings brain trust of general manager Rick Spielman and head coach Mike Zimmer have been quiet since they were fired on January 10. Zimmer has not been linked to any coaching vacancies and neither has Spielman for general manager openings. While Zimmer and Spielman were foundational figures of the Vikings’ reemergence of the past decade, the relationship grew sour in the Kirk Cousins era and was severed at some point this season. Deion Sanders said recently that Spielman and Zimmer hadn’t spoken in months during the 2021 season.

    WMNF 88.5-FM General Manager Rick Fernandes, who announced his resignation from Tampa Bay’s community radio station on Aug. 19, 2021.WMNF After less than two years at the helm, WMNF’s Rick Fernandes is stepping down as general manager of the nearly 42-year-old nonprofit community radio station. Fernandes informed staff of his decision to leave on Thursday morning. The station said his last day is Sept. 10. Fernandes—a multiple Daytime Emmy winner—departs two years after WMNF 88.5-FM’s last GM Craig Kopp resigned amid controversy surrounding Kopp’s February 2019 firing of the station’s co-founder and news director Rob Lorei. Lorei won his job back after filing a grievance, but was fired again by Fernandes this spring. Lorei did not fight to get his job back after the second firing, but in recent weeks, WMNF and its former news director have again found themselves at odds over the reason for his termination. The backlash from Lorei’s firing and recent programming changes at WMNF have been a sore spot for listeners, some of whom demonstrated outside the station this month. When he resigned, Kopp described his...

    VIDEO2:3202:32BlackRock's Rick Rieder on bitcoin: We've started to dabble in itSquawk Box BlackRock's Rick Rieder told CNBC on Wednesday the world's largest asset manager has begun entering the bitcoin space. The remarks from Rieder, who is BlackRock's chief investment officer of global fixed income, came on the same day bitcoin broke above $51,000 for the first time. "Today the volatility of it is extraordinary, but listen, people are looking for storehouses of value," Rieder said on "Squawk Box." "People are looking for places that could appreciate under the assumption that inflation moves higher and that debts are building, so we've started to dabble a bit into it." In January, BlackRock added bitcoin futures as an potential investment for two of its funds, according to filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The funds are BlackRock Strategic Income Opportunities and BlackRock Global Allocation Fund. A number of other financial institutions, such as BNY Mellon and Mastercard, have made entrances into the crypto space in recent days. BNY Mellon, the nation's oldest bank, will launch a digital assets unit later this year, while...
    Getty Rick Smith during an event when he was Houston's executive. The Detroit Lions have seen one of their first names officially surface from the outside as it relates to the impending general manager search and it’s a pretty accomplished one indeed. According to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, former Houston Texans’ general manager Rick Smith will interview with the Lions in the coming weeks for their vacant general manager position. The interview is expected to be completed before the Christmas holiday on December 25. Theres a lot to like about ex-Texans GM Rick Smith as a candidate for the Lions GM job. Hes built winners before, he drafted Deshaun Watson, his approach to life… Where do you stand on him as Lions GM? https://t.co/PseIpjA0mL via @freep — Dave Birkett (@davebirkett) December 14, 2020 Smith could be one of the hottest general manager candidates this offseason considering his experience.

    In California: New COVID cases drop, and how to play a new Golden State Monopoly game The 20 best things to get at Aldi this year, according to shoppers The White Sox congratulated Rick Renteria, who they fired in favor of Tony La Russa, for an AL Manager of the Year nomination It’s unusual, but not unprecedented, for a coach or manager to be nominated for or win a major award in the same year they get fired. A few recent examples include Dwane Casey with the NBA’s Toronto Raptors (he won the NBA Coach of the Year award a few months after being fired by the Toronto Raptors in 2018), George Karl (fired by the Denver Nuggets in 2013 a month after winning that same award), and Joe Girardi (he won the 2006 NL Manager of the Year award a month after being let go by the then-Florida Marlins). And this went to an interesting new level with recently-fired Chicago White Sox manager Rick Renteria (subsequently replaced by Tony La Russa); Renteria was announced as a finalist for...

    The White Sox’s social team posted a sharp-looking graphic on Twitter announcing outfielder Luis Robert finished in the top three in American League Rookie of the Year voting this year. The group put in a lot less effort to acknowledge that the club’s former manager is in line for an award, too. The Sox quote tweeted the Baseball Writers’ Association of America’s announcement Monday listing Rick Renteria as a top-three vote-getter in AL Manager of Year balloting, adding a lukewarm congratulatory message that didn’t even come with an exclamation point. A top-and-bottom comparison of the posts: Renteria was let go Oct. 12 despite leading the team to its first postseason berth in 12 years. The Sox lost their Wild Card Series to the A’s in three games. Chicago replaced him with former White Sox skipper Tony La Russa on Oct. 29 at the urging of team chairman Jerry Reinsdorf.

    The Chicago White Sox fired Rick Renteria despite taking the team to the playoffs. Now, he’s a Manager of the Year finalist. 2020 was a great year for the Chicago White Sox. Despite finishing a game behind the Minnesota Twins for the AL Central title, the White Sox were able to clinch a postseason berth for the first-time since 2008 under the managing of Rick Renteria. Even with the successful season, the White Sox shockingly opted to cut ties with Renteria, so they could hire Hall of Fame manager Tony La Russa. Days after the news, Renteria got the last laugh. On Monday night, the Baseball Writers’ Association of America revealed that Renteria is a finalist for AL Manager of the Year, alongside Kevin Cash of the Tampa Bay Rays and Charlie Montoyo of the Toronto Blue Jays.

    By ANDREW SELIGMAN, AP Sports Writer CHICAGO (AP) — Tony La Russa, the Hall of Famer who won a World Series with the Oakland Athletics and two more with the St. Louis Cardinals, is returning to manage the Chicago White Sox 34 years after they fired him. The 76-year-old La Russa rejoins the franchise where his managing career began more than four decades ago. He takes over for Rick Renteria after what the White Sox insisted was a mutual agreement to split. “We are extremely excited about the future of this team,” general manager Rick Hahn said Thursday. “As we showed in 2020, this is a young, talented club that we expect to only grow better and better in the coming years.

    Ricky’s boys are going to have to move on without Ricky. On Monday, the White Sox announced that manager Rick Renteria would not be returning in 2021, as they’ve agreed to “part ways” this offseason, leaving a very intriguing opening for next season. The White Sox job is a sexy opening, with the extremely talented squad — Yoan Moncada, Lucas Giolito, Eloy Jimenez, Luis Robert and Tim Anderson, to name some key components — taking a big step in a coronavirus-shortened season. To that end, there will likely be no shortage of intrigued free-agent and prospective managers in the mix. MORE: Where do the Yankees go from here? The White Sox are just about done rebuilding and ready to start competing regularly, if 2020 was any indication. While they finished third in the AL Central, the fights in years to come for a division crown could start slanting toward Chicago, especially if the eventual, rumored teardown of the Indians happens sooner rather than later.  Make no mistake, managers will want this job. It might not be marquee like Chicago North, but the talent...
