Snoop Dogg has been a big supporter of Colin Kaepernick, whether it has been supporting Kap's protest or helping him get to his goal of $1 million donated to charity. On the financial side, Snoop had already pledged to give $10K to Mothers Against Police Brutality in Dallas, TX, which was matched by Kaepernick. Now the "Drop It Like It's Hot" rapper is adding an additional $15K to the cause, bringing the total donation to $35K. The best part, this bring the overall donation total to $940K, just $60K away from completing the #MillionDollarPledge.
Kaep’s 2016 campaign called on citizens to help donate to organizations aimed at societal change. Over that time frame, they’ve donated to over 40 different organizations. With the goal getting closer, Kaep is kicking it into gear. On Jan. 17, the NFL free agent announced that he and 10 friends would be donating the last $100,000 over the next 10 days, which he helmed the #10for10 campaign.
The Chicago Bears have found a new general to lead their team. The team is set to officially introduce Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy as their new head coach in a Tuesday (Jan 9) press conference.
Nagy, 39, replaces John Fox, who was fired after posting a 14-34 record in three seasons.
The Bears interviewed five candidates before meeting with Nagy on Sunday, the day after the Chiefs' playoff loss to the Tennessee Titans.
Nagy spent the last 10 seasons coaching under Andy Reid in Philadelphia and Kansas City. Reid promoted Nagy to Chiefs offensive coordinator this year -- Nagy served as Kansas City's co-offensive coordinator in 2016 -- and officially relinquished playcalling duties to the young assistant late in 2017. Kansas City won four in a row to close out the regular season before Saturday's collapse against the Titans.
Prior to 2016, Nagy spent three seasons as Kansas City's quarterbacks coach and worked closely with veteran Alex Smith, who made his first Pro Bowl in 2013.
Nagy will be the play-caller for Mitch Trubisky, sources told ESPN's Chris Mortensen. The Bears would like to keep defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, but are aware their defensive coordinator has other options.
