White Sox team captain Paul Konerko will forgo retirement and return for one more season on the South Side.
Konerko, 37, will make $2.5 million next season, with $1 million of that deferred until 2021. Under terms of his previous contract signed in December 2010, Konerko will receive $1 million annually from 2014 to 2020.
The NFL on Wednesday fined Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin $100,000 for interfering with a kickoff return in last Thursday night’s game against the Baltimore Ravens.
In addition, the league said it will consider a forfeiture of draft choices for the Steelers because Tomlin’s conduct affected a play on the field.
The $100,000 fine is tied for the second-largest reported fine ever given to an NFL coach
Congratulations to Hoopeston Area head coach John Klaber, who was named the News-Gazette’s 2013 Soccer Coach of the Year.
