The Washington Redskins will host the New York Jets this summer for three days of joint training camp practices.
The teams announced Tuesday that they will practice with each other at Washington's Bon Secours Training Center from Aug. 12 to 14 Josh Sitton Jersey , leading into their preseason game at FedExField on Aug. 16.
The practices, which will be free and open to the public, will mark the first time the Jets have held joint sessions with another team since they joined the Giants at SUNY Albany in 2005. Meanwhile, this will be the third set of joint practices in the last five years for the Redskins, who hosted New England in 2014 and Houston the following summer.
Jets coach Todd Bowles says the practices will be "a nice change of pace for our players to face another team." Redskins coach Jay Gruden says similar sessions in the past have given his staff good opportunities to evaluate players in competitive situations.
Fans of both teams will be able to get a close look at Jets first-round pick Sam Darnold Archie Manning Jersey , who will compete for New York's starting quarterback job. Washington, whose new QB is Alex Smith, selected Alabama defensive tackle Da'ron Payne with the 13th overall pick.
The New York Rangers hired Boston Universitys David Quinn as their new head coach Wednesday, the second college coach hired by an NHL team this month and third in the past four years.
Quinn replaces Alain Vigneault, who was fired hours after the Rangers missed the playoffs for the first time since 2010. An introductory news conference was scheduled for Thursday.
In a coaching career that has spanned over two decades at the collegiate Bryan Bulaga Jersey , pro, and international level, David has helped his teams achieve success while simultaneously teaching the game and helping his players develop on and off the ice, general manager Jeff Gorton said. He is the ideal choice to bring our loyal and passionate fans the winning hockey they deserve.
The 51-year-old Quinn coached Boston University to four NCAA Tournament appearances in five seasons, including a trip to the national title game in 2015. He spent the lockout-shortened 2013 NHL season as an assistant on Joe Saccos staff with the Colorado Avalanche.
David brings a diverse and successful coaching resume that includes extensive work in developing young talent Germain Ifedi Jersey , Rangers owner James Dolan said. I am confident he is an excellent fit for our team, and know he will work tirelessly with (team president Glen Sather), Jeff and our entire organization to execute our plan to build the next Rangers Stanley Cup-contending team.
The Rangers made the playoffs in four of Vigneaults five seasons as coach, including a 2014 trip to the Stanley Cup Final. They went 226-147-37 in the regular season under Vigneault, who is third in regular-season and playoff wins in franchise history.
The retooling Rangers are the latest team to dip into the college ranks for a coach after the Philadelphia Flyers hired Dave Hakstol from North Dakota in 2015 and the Dallas Stars hired Jim Montgomery from the University of Denver in early May. Before Hakstol Patrick Chung Jersey , it had been 28 years since a coach made the jump from the NCAA to the NHL.
