Bruce Arians, Pete Carroll, Jason Garrett, familiar names likely to get support for the APs Coach of the Year honour. Harrison Barnes Jersey .How about the guys who do the grunt work for them? Some call plays, others spend countless hours teaching, administrating, organizing. Few get the glory.Until this season. On Jan. 31, the night before the Super Bowl, at the prime-time NFL Honors TV show, the leagues top assistant coach will, indeed, bask in the spotlight. For the first time, the AP will present a separate award to the assistant coach voted to have done the best job in 2014.And there are plenty of candidates.Todd Bowles, Arizona defensive co-ordinatorAlready being looked at for upcoming head coaching vacancies, Bowles has worked wonders with an injury-ravaged unit. The Cardinals (11-3) stay in — or win — games more because of their defence and coaching than anything.Adam Gase, Denver offensive co-ordinator.Gases unit now has become as much run-oriented as Peyton Manning-oriented, and its working. Remember, this is the guy who got some wins out of Tim Tebow back in 2011.I think hes used the knowledge of the coaches that hes worked with, you know, the offensive coaches especially, and the Nick Sabans that have been instrumental in some of his coaching philosophies, Manning says. Hes used those to apply to his coaching style and its helped him a lot.Like Bowles, Gases name will come up in the January chase for head coaching positions, particularly for teams with a young QB in need of development.Teryl Austin, Detroit defensive co-ordinatorThe phrase Lions impressive defence is something new around the Motor City. Austin has it ranked second overall and first against the run in his first year on the job.Detroits secondary was expected to be a weak link, but it has yielded only 238 points. Austin has cultivated balance and gotten it.James Campen, Green Bay offensive lineWhen you have a prized quarterback such as Aaron Rodgers and a stud runner in Eddie Lacy, one thing that can neutralize them in Titletown is weak blocking. The Packers had been so-so on the offensive line for too long, but Campen has helped develop youngsters who could become anchors: tackle David Bakhtiari and rookie centre Corey Linsley.Rod Marinelli, Dallas defensive co-ordinator; Bill Callahan, Dallas offensive co-ordinator/offensive line; Scott Linehan, Dallas passing gameA three-pronged candidacy.The Cowboys dedication to DeMarco Murray, like Rodgers a leading contender for MVP, and the running game lifts both Callahan and Linehan into consideration. Callahan oversees perhaps the best line in the NFL, and Linehan has avoided the temptation to put a heavy burden on QB Tony Romo.But the most eye-catching work in Big D has come from its, well, Big D. Expectations for the Cowboys defence couldnt have been lower entering 2014. Yet Marinelli has moulded an unheralded (some would say undertalented) group into a winner.Dan Quinn, Seattle defensive co-ordinatorThis one is simple: Seattles sometimes overpowering defence makes the Seahawks tough to derail. Its doing exactly what it needs to do for Seattle to repeat, despite personnel losses to injury and free agency.Dave Fipp, Philadelphia special teams co-ordinatorNo discounting the additions of Darren Sproles, Josh Huff, Chris Maragos, Cody Parkey and Bryan Braman, Fipp has done a strong job making his groupings, well, special. The Eagles have a huge edge on opponents in punt/kickoff returns and coverage, and have four runbacks for TDs.Todd Haley, Pittsburgh offensive co-ordinatorIf anyone said Pittsburgh leads the league in something, the natural instinct for the home of the Steel Curtain would be to think defence. Nope. Haley has helped Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown and LeVeon Bell into position to set franchise marks.Gary Kubiak, Baltimore offensive co-ordinatorRay Rice, suspended. Barnard Pierce, hurt and then ineffective.So Kubiak turned to journeyman Justin Forsett, and Forsett is among the league leaders in rushing.The O-line has been outstanding, allowing only 16 sacks.The biggest thing with Gary is the confidence he gives the unit, QB Joe Flacco says. I think Gary does a great job of doing that and seeing what theyre giving us out there and making adjustments and making calls on the fly.Jim Schwartz, Buffalo defensive co-ordinator; Pepper Johnson, Buffalo defensive lineSchwartz might have flopped as a head man in Detroit, but hes rediscovered his tough defensive mastery here. No better evidence than the 21-13 win over the high-powered Packers last Sunday.His biggest helper has been Johnson, who took over a topnotch unit and has made it even better.Bill Kollar, Houston defensive lineSure, J.J. Watt, another leading MVP contender, would make any coach look good. Listen to what Watt has to say about his mentor:Every single day is something new with him. Im always learning and Im always improving as a player. I owe a lot of my credit to him.Such an endorsement might make Kollar award worthy. Well find out on Super Bowl eve.___AP Pro Football Writers Arnie Stapleton and Rob Maaddi, and Sports Writers Kristie Rieken, Noah Trister, Will Graves, John Wawrow, David Ginsburg, Genaro Armas, Schuyler Dixon and Tim Booth contributed to this story.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Chris Webber Jersey . Or at least on everyone elses expectations. Costa Rica followed up its surprise win over Uruguay with another World Cup stunner on Friday, beating four-time champion Italy 1-0 to secure a spot in the next round and eliminate England in the process. Fred Hetzel Jersey . The Cottagers last victory came in a 2-1 home win over West Ham when Rene Meulensteen was still in charge. Since then, a miserable run of seven defeats and two draws has seen the club part with the Dutch coach and replace him with German Felix Magath. https://www.cheapwarriors.com/379o-david-west-jersey-warriors.html .Y. - Phil Varone was the lone scorer in the shootout as the Rochester Americans edged the Toronto Marlies 3-2 on Sunday in American Hockey League action.CHICAGO - Magic Johnson joked about his involvement in the controversy surrounding Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling on Sunday while delivering the keynote address at the National Restaurant Association Show. Johnsons remarks focused on his restaurant and food services businesses, but he did briefly mention the Sterling situation at the start of his 50-minute talk. "These last two weeks, I dont know," he said. "I thought I should go back to the food service industry because these last two weeks have been unbelievable. "But Im glad to be here and even with that said, I still have a big smile on my face." Johnson, the NBA Hall of Famer turned entrepreneur, was thrust into the news because part of Sterlings racist rant on the audio released by TMZ last month focused on him. Sterling complained that his female friend, V. Stiviano, had posed for a picture with Johnson and posted it on Instagram. Within days of the tape being released, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver announced that Sterling was baanned from the league for life and he was fined $2. Sleepy Floyd Jersey. million. Silver also announced he would ask the other NBA owners to force Sterling to sell. Sterling made no public comments for a week before agreeing to do a lengthy sit-down interview with CNN. He apologized during the interview, but then veered into an attack of Johnson, saying he wasnt a good role model for the children of Los Angeles because he was promiscuous and developed HIV. Sterling also questioned what Johnson has done for minorities. "Man, I didnt know that taking a picture with someone would mean ." Johnson said Sunday. "Im not going to stop taking pictures, so I just hope it doesnt happen anymore. But theres no room in our society for racism." That was all Johnson had to say about the matter during his talk. He didnt stop to take questions from reporters after the event and none of the questions asked by the audience during the address concerned his controversy or his possible interest in buying the Clippers.
