Former UCLA football coach Pepper Rodgers died Thursday after reportedly being hospitalized for injuries suffered in a fall at his home in Reston, Va., last week. He was 88.

After a 2-7-1 record his first season, he turned the program around for winning seasons of 8-3 and 9-2 his last two years. He was named the Pac-8 Coach of the Year after...

Rams to host Dallas Cowboys in SoFi Stadium regular-season opener

It has dates for Rams fans to salivate over, starting with a prime-time season opener against the Dallas Cowboys in the first game that counts at SoFi Stadium. It has dates for Rams fans to worry about, such as perhaps the entire second half of the season, which is packed with division rivals as well as hype-worthy matchups with Tom Brady’s new and old teams. It has an asterisk hanging over everything, of course, because coronavirus restrictions could cause any of it to be canceled or moved arou...

Rivera, Redskins unlikely to sign Cam Newton

Cam Newton remains an unsigned free agent, and joining Washington Redskins head coach Ron Rivera might not be an option for the former Carolina Panthers No. 1 overall pick. Newton was released by the Panthers after missing most of last season due to a foot injury that required surgery. The Redskins hired Rivera, Newton's coach for his entire Carolina career, after the Panthers fired Rivera in 2019.

NFL draft: Chargers got Justin Herbert through patience

Chargers general manager Tom Telesco got a “yeah, right” reaction when he mentioned in his pre-draft news conference that he doesn’t create smokescreens. It appears Telesco was at least telling the truth with his first pick in Thursday’s 2020 NFL draft. The lies and deception came from the teams ahead of the Chargers. For weeks, the Miami Dolphins had the public convinced they were split on quarterbacks Tua Tagovailoa and Justin Herbert, and the smokescreens didn’t stop there. There were reports...

Most NFL teams can’t wait to see who they’ll get with their first-round pick in next week’s draft. The Rams don’t have to wait. They already know who they got: Jalen Ramsey, the 25-year-old Pro Bowl cornerback they acquired in the middle of last season by trading their first-round pick — as well as next year’s first- and fourth-round picks — to the Jacksonville Jaguars. “Even though we don’t have a 2020 draft pick — or ’21 — you have this really young, talented player,” Rams general manager Les ...
