Sports Headlines: 

>>Badgers QB Coan Out Indefinitely After Successful Foot Surgery

(Madison, WI)  —  Wisconsin Badgers senior quarterback Jack Coan will be out indefinitely after Tuesday’s surgical procedure on his right foot. Coan suffered the non-contact injury Saturday during a practice session.  He was being counted on to lead a mostly inexperienced offense this season.  After a strong junior campaign, he was on four preseason watch lists – for the Davey O’Brien Award, the Manning Award, the Maxwell Award, and the Unitas Arm Award.  He had just been named a semifinalist for the William B. Campbell Trophy last week.  It isn’t clear if he will be able to see any action in this shortened college football season.

>>Career Of Promising GB Rookie TE Put On Hold By Knee Injury

(Green Bay, WI)  —  The career of Packers rookie tight end Josiah Deguara is on hold while he recovers from a serious knee injury.  Deguara was hurt in the last two minutes of the win over Atlanta while he was playing on punt coverage.  He had just returned to action after missing two games with an ankle injury suffered in the season opener at Minnesota.  Coach Matt LaFleur says he expects Deguara to bounce back, saying Green Bay’s third-round draft pick still has a bright future in the NFL.

>>Bucks Assistant To Interview For Clippers Head Coaching Position

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  Milwaukee Bucks lead assistant coach Darvin Ham is one of the “hot” names in the coaching circles as NBA teams look to fill their openings.  Ham will interview for the vacant L-A Clippers position this week, according to ESPN.  He’s already a finalist for the head coaching job with the Indiana Pacers.  He will meet with that team this week after a virtual interview previously.  Ham has served as an assistant with Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer for seven seasons.  There are currently six vacant head coaching jobs looking to be filled by NBA teams.
