DES MOINES, Iowa -- Drake coach Ray Giacoletti abruptly resigned Tuesday after three-plus seasons, saying it was time for a new voice to lead the Bulldogs out of a skid that has them just 1-7 so far this season.Giacoletti, a former coach at Utah, went 32-69 at Drake and will be replaced by assistant Jeff Rutter for the rest of the season. Athletic director Sandy Hatfield-Clubb wouldnt speculate on Rutters status following the season.Giacolletis stint with the Bulldogs got off to a promising start, as he finished 15-16 in 2013-14 at a program with just one NCAA Tournament appearance since 1971.But Drake finished 9-22 and 7-24 in the next two seasons. The Bulldogs only win so far in 2016-17 came against Division III Simpson College, and last week they went through a brutal stretch that included two-point losses at DePaul and Fresno State.It felt like this was the right move, Giacoletti said. Im a big boy. I understand how this thing works. Its year four, and where our team needs to be, in my opinion, not anybody elses opinion, where I believe our team should be, Im accountable for that. I didnt feel like we were there, and I didnt feel like there was a whole lot of how I could help it change.The promotion was bittersweet for Rutter, a close friend of Giacolettis who will be a Division I head coach for the first time.Rutter has spent 30 years in coaching, including a stint as the head coach at Division II Wisconsin-Parkside from 1996-2003. He left to join Greg McDermott at Northern Iowa and followed McDermott to Iowa State, where the pair worked together for seven seasons.Theres no wholesale change, some magic formula. (Its about) guys believing in playing efficiently, playing hard, playing together, and just trying to get over the hump and hope getting over the hump snowballs in a positive way, Rutter said.Giacolettis resignation was just the latest in a long line of struggles for Iowas most downtrodden Division I program.After reaching the Final Four in 1969, the Bulldogs went through decades of lackluster play. Tom Davis, who had recently been let go at Iowa, took over in the early 2000s and made the program competitive before handing the program over to his son. Keno Davis led Drake on a remarkable run in 2007-08, winning the Missouri Valley Conference and earning a No. 5 seed in the NCAA Tournament. He left for Providence after that season and was replaced by Mark Phelps, a strong recruiter who couldnt make the Bulldogs a winner in five seasons.Hatfield-Clubb thought she had found the right guy in Giacoletti, a former head coach at Utah and a Gonzaga assistant who hoped to follow the blueprint that Mark Few used to maintain sustained success with the Zags.Unless Rutter can show marked improvement with this years roster, shell likely have yet another coaching search on her hands this spring.Our team is not where we expected to be when we originally talked about that vision, Hatfield-Clubb said.---More college basketball at www.collegebasketball.ap.org Pierre-Edouard Bellemare Stanley Cup Jersey . Dallas hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday nights game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup. Surely Ortons name isnt the first that comes to mind for fans wanting a change after years of damaging interceptions, fumbles or, most infamously, the field goal flub when Romo dropped the snap on a kick that could have won his first playoff game in 2006.

DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings and the Arizona Coyotes are both coming off shutout losses.Detroit hosts Arizona on Tuesday night at Joe Louis Arena. The Red Wings (13-12-4) lost 1-0 to the Philadelphia Flyers in overtime at home on Sunday. The Coyotes (9-14-5) lost 7-0 to the Penguins in Pittsburgh on Monday night.The Red Wings have dropped the first two games of their five-game homestand and continue to struggle at home (2-7-3 in their past 12 and 6-7-3 overall). They have only 20 goals in their last 12 games at home.Offense is the main issue for the team, which ranks 26th in the league in goals per game (2.28). And part of the problem is a lack of shots. They rank 29th at 28.1 shots per game.We just got to do a better job of going to the net and shooting more pucks, Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill told www.mlive.com. We were passing up shots (against Philadelphia). I think the shot attempts after the second were almost even. We had three times the zone time as them in the first (period), but we dont end up outshooting them because we dont shoot the puck enough.So we got to decide if we want to shoot the puck, we got to decide if we want to go to the net. Its been an issue here for three years, five-on-five offense, and we got to decide if were going to change it. Until we do that, were not going to score enough.Detroit not shooting enough goes back to when Mike Babcock was the teams coach in 2014-15.ddddddddddddWe have to drill it, we have to show it, anyway we can to try to make sure we do that, Blashill said. I dont know if its that easy, but thats what teams do in the league that score.We played one tonight, we played one the other night in Columbus. They dont over-pass, they dont over-make plays, they shoot the puck and they go to the net hard. Thats just the NHL today.The Coyotes have lost seven of their past eight games (1-4-3). Mike Smith allowed four goals on 22 shots before being replaced by Louis Domingue, who made nine saves on Monday night.Theyre struggling at their execution, Arizona coach Dave Tippett said. Theres a standard you have to play to in the NHL, whether youre a young guy or a veteran. We didnt play or compete at an NHL level tonight. Thats the score you get and thats where were at.Forward Josh Jooris played 8:46 in his Coyotes debut after being claimed off waivers from the New York Rangers on Sunday.We have to be way better than how we just played, Arizona defenseman Michael Stone said. ... I think we have to learn from this, learn that every team is good in this league and you cant take any nights off, no matter who youre playing.
