Utah Jazz

The Utah Jazz announced Sunday that the team has signed guard MaCio Teague. Teague (6-4, 195, Baylor) owned averages of 15.9 points on 47.8 percent from the field, along with 4.0 rebounds and 1.7 assists as a senior in 2020-21, helping Baylor to a National Championship. The Cincinnati native garnered 2020-21 All-Big 12 Third Team honors for his final standout collegiate season. He spent two seasons at Baylor (2019-21), where he also earned 2019-20 All-Big 12 Second Team and All-Big 12 Newcomer Team accolades.

Prior to Baylor, he spent two seasons a UNC-Asheville (2016-18), where he averaged 16.1 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.3 steals in 67 career games (64 starts) and was named to the All-Big South First Team twice (2017, 2018), also collecting 2016-17 Big South Freshman of the Year and All-Big South Freshman Team honors.

U of U football

Former Utah football player and coach John Pease, who also spent two decades as an assistant coach in the NFL, passed away this morning at the age of 77.

Pease, who made his home in Salt Lake City in recent years, last coached in 2015, when he served as Utah’s defensive coordinator and defensive line coach for one season after Kyle Whittingham brought him out of retirement. Whittingham had previously brought Pease back into coaching, out of retirement, to serve as assistant head coach and worked with the Utes’ defensive line from 2009-10.

“John Pease was one of my favorite people, ever,” Whittingham said. “He was my friend. It was an honor working with him, learning from him and knowing him. He impacted the lives of countless people and will be missed by all. The Utah Football family lost a great one and we send all our love and condolences to his wife, Chris, and his loved ones.”

BYU football

BYU Athletics and current corporate partner Built Brands, LLC announced an enhanced multi-year agreement to support the Cougar football program, while also pioneering separate innovative NIL agreements with individual members of the football team.

Built’s individual NIL agreements with BYU players include compensation to all members of the team, including compensation to all walk-on players in the amount comparable to the costs of tuition for the academic year. “From the beginning of the NIL discussion, my hope was that changes to NCAA rules and regulations would provide a pathway forward for all players to benefit more fully from their name, image, and likeness, especially walk-ons who sacrifice so much to make our program great,” said BYU head coach Kalani Sitake.

USU football

Utah State football held its first scrimmage of fall camp Saturday morning on Merlin Olsen Field at Maverik Stadium and first-year head coach Blake Anderson was pleased with his team’s play.

“I thought we played hard and physical today,” said Anderson. “The biggest concern, obviously, is turnovers and you can’t have five turnovers in a game and expect to win very often. I’m fired up about the defense for creating them and I’m frustrated with the offense for having them. I guess that is the way it goes when you go against yourself. 

“I also wanted them to have a good time and I think they are. We have had really, really good energy from these guys all week. We have not had to beg them to practice, they come prepared and the meetings have been good. So, in terms of culture and character of what we are expecting and asking of them, it’s been a really, really good first week.”
