University of Missouri men’s basketball junior Kobe Brown has been named Southeastern Conference Player of the Week, the league announced Monday morning. Brown, with a career-high 30-point performance, helped lead the Tigers to a 92-86 win against No. 15 Alabama on Saturday. He went 9 of 13 from the floor, including a pair of three-pointers, in addition to 13 rebounds for his fifth double-double of the season to contribute to Mizzou’s first conference win of the season. The win was the first against a top-25 team in 2021-22 for Mizzou and marked the third-straight season the Tigers have defeated a ranked opponent.
Former University of Missouri head football coach Gary Pinkel has been named to the 2022 College Football Hall of Fame class. Pinkel led the Tiger football program for 15 seasons in his 25-year career as a head coach. He helped lead the Tigers to 118 wins, 6 bowl wins, 3 Big 12 North Division titles, 2 SEC East Division titles, and won SEC Coach of the Year in 2014. Pinkel, along with 18 players and 2 other coaches will be officially inducted into the Hall of Fame in December. Pinkel will become the 6th coach in the history of the University of Missouri football program to be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.
KANSAS CITY CHIEFS
One of the Kansas City Chiefs longtime rivals has reportedly expressed interested in offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy. According to a report from NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport, the Denver Broncos have asked for permission to speak with Bieniemy. On Sunday, the Broncos fired head coach Vic Fangio, leaving the position open. The move came after the Broncos finished the season with a losing record of 7-10. Bieniemy, who’s led the team’s offense for the last four years, was considered a leading candidate to get hired as a head coach after the 2020-2021 season. He interviewed with several football teams during the team’s post-season push last season. However, no team offered Bieniemy a head coaching job after the interviews.
