Jets name Bates of­fen­sive co­or­di­na­tor

The Palm Beach Post - - SPORTS -

The New York Jets pro­moted Bates from quar­ter­backs coach to of­fen­sive co­or­di­na­tor, re­plac­ing the fired John Mor­ton. Bates will con­tinue coach­ing quar­ter­backs.

■ For­mer Heis­man Tro­phy-win­ning quar­ter­back Johnny Manziel says he’ll par­tic­i­pate in the de­vel­op­men­tal Spring League in Austin, Texas, which will play from March 28 to April 15.

■ Fox Sports will broad­cast the NFL draft this sea­son, along with the NFL’s usual tele­vi­sion part­ners of ESPN and NFL Net­work.


Ten­nis: Roger Fed­erer, 36, is two wins from claim­ing the No. 1 rank­ing for the first time in six years. He de­feated Ruben Bemel­mans 6-1, 6-2 in just 46 min­utes at the ABN AMRO tour­na­ment in Rotterdam, Nether­lands. Fed­erer will re­place his old ri­val Rafael Nadal at No. 1 if he reaches the semi­fi­nals at the in­door tour­na­ment. By achiev­ing the feat, he would also be­come the old­est topranked male player. An­dre Agassi holds the record, at 33 years, 133 days old.

Soc­cer: Mor­gan Brian and Rose Lavelle re­turn to the U.S. women’s na­tional team af­ter deal­ing with in­juries last year in prepa­ra­tion for the SheBelieves Cup next month. Brian, in France play­ing for Lyon, will not take part in train­ing camp in Or­lando but will be avail­able for the fi­nal SheBelieves Cup ros­ter.
