Wilfried Nancy has been hired to coach Major League Soccer’s Columbus Crew, replacing Caleb Porter. Nancy was born in France and spent the last two seasons as coach of CF Montreal, which agreed to release Nancy and some of his assistants in exchange for compensation. Montreal had a team-best 20 wins, nine losses and five draws last season to finish second in the Eastern Conference. Porter was fired in October, one day after Columbus failed to make the playoffs. Porter had a regular-season record of 45 wins, 43 losses and seven draws in four seasons.

The College Football Playoff says it will expand to a 12-team event starting in 2024. The announcement comes a day after the Rose Bowl agreed to amend its contract for the 2024 and 2025 seasons. That was the last hurdle CFP officials needed cleared to triple the size of what is now a four-team format. The expansion is expected to produce about $450 million in additional gross revenue for the conferences and schools that participate. The plan to expand the playoff was unveiled publicly in June 2021 and it took 18 months of haggling and delays to finally complete the process.

The Buckeyes went to Ann Arbor as No. 2 last year and were routed by No. 5 Michigan 42-27, which snapped an eight-game skid in the rivalry game.
