Kyle Nystrom has been named as the new head football coach at Northern Michigan University. Nystrom has a long association with the NMU program – his father was an assistant coach for the Wildcats. He returns to Marquette from Big Rapids, where he was co-defensive coordinator for Ferris State University. He’s also coached at Central Michigan University and Western Michigan University. Learn more about coach Nystrom here.


The Detroit Red Wings’ scoring troubles resurfaced last night, as they fell to the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-1. Anthony Mantha got Detroit’s only goal in the third period, when the game was already out of reach. Jimmy Howard gave up one goal before what appeared to be a leg injury forced him from the game early in the second period. Petr Mrazek replaced him. The Wings will visit the Florida Panthers Friday evening. Faceoff is at 7:30 on AM 1400 and FM 99.3, WCCY.

After the game, the Wings announced that goalie Jared Coreau will be called up from Grand Rapids to fill in for Howard. There’s no word yet as to how serious Howard’s injury is.

The Detroit Pistons host the Memphis Grizzlies tonight. Tip-off is at 7:30 on AM 1400 and FM 99.3, WCCY.


The NFL Pro Bowl teams were announced yesterday. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers earned his sixth selection. Safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and guard T.J. Lang will join him. No Detroit Lions were named to the team, but four were selected as reserves.  Punter Sam Martin and kicker Matt Prater were named first alternates. Quarterback Matthew Stafford and cornerback Darius Slay are second alternates.
