(Photo by Gregory Shamus/Getty Images)The NFL coaching carousel is about to start up again in earnest, so get ready for this year’s edition of the Jim Harbaugh-to-_____ rumors.The latest report last night indicates that the New York Jets intend on making a run at the Michigan head coach. The Jets are set to move on from Todd Bowles once the season concludes.Now, Harbaugh’s name is bandied about for job openings every year like we said. He’s already been mentioned as a fit in Green Bay and Cleveland.In a recent interview with ESPN, Harbaugh stated he wants to stay at Michigan. Program insider John U. Bacon echoed those sentiments today.“No matter who is taking a run at Harbaugh these days, he has not shown one sign of leaving, and a ton for staying,” Bacon wrote..No matter who is taking a run at Harbaugh these days, he has not shown one sign of leaving, and a ton for staying. So, unless you hear it from Harbaugh himself, or a reputable source like @SamWebb77, freely discard it. These only come up every five seconds, since he returned. https://t.co/gVkxAAy1fM— John U. Bacon (@Johnubacon) December 24, 2018Harbaugh has taken Michigan to within one game of the Big Ten East title in two of the last three seasons, only to fall to Ohio State. Those losses not only cost them a shot at a conference crown, but eliminated them from College Football Playoff contention as well.It makes sense that a franchise like the Jets, which needs some stability and gravitas as it looks to build around franchise quarterback Sam Darnold, would turn to Harbaugh. He would give them an instant boost in credibility.However, if Harbaugh’s own words are to be believed, it seems unlikely that New York or any team can get him to leave Ann Arbor right now.last_img read more

Black women booted from Napa Valley wine train sue say they were

Black women booted from Napa Valley wine train sue, say they were singled out because of race SAN FRANCISCO – A group of mostly black women filed a racial discrimination lawsuit Thursday after they were removed from a train that tours Napa Valley wineries, saying it was humiliating to be thrown off a rail car when loud and inebriated white passengers were allowed to stay.The 11 women sued Napa Valley Wine Train Inc., saying they were singled out because of race and seeking $11 million in damages. The company said in a statement that it takes allegations of discrimination very seriously and has hired a former FBI agent to investigate.The women said many of them were part of a book club that meets regularly and had gathered on the train to discuss a romance novel. Before the train left the station in Napa, a train employee asked them to quiet down because they were offending other passengers, they said.The same employee admonished them a second time before telling them that police officers would be waiting for them when the train reached St. Helena, the suit says. They were escorted through several other cars as other passengers stared and then off the train and into a dirt lot where police were waiting, according to the suit.“That was the most humiliating experience that I have ever had in my entire life,” Lisa Johnson, 47, said with tears in her eyes, appearing with some of the other women at a news conference announcing the lawsuit. “This is 2015, and this just cannot happen again.”The wine train issued an apology after the women were ejected, promising additional training for employees on cultural diversity and sensitivity and free passes for a future trip.The lawsuit also claims the women were defamed by a company statement saying they had been verbally and physically abusive.“I took this case because it’s an egregious case,” the women’s attorney, Waukeen McCoy, said. “This lawsuit highlights that blacks are still being treated differently in America.”McCoy said he engaged in settlement talks with the company, but it did not make a settlement offer.The Napa Valley Wine Train offers food and wine to passengers as they visit Napa County wineries in updated Pullman cars.A spokesman for the company, Sam Singer, has said individuals or groups are asked to get off the wine train once a month on average for various reasons. by Sudhin Thanawala, The Associated Press Posted Oct 1, 2015 2:06 pm MDT Last Updated Oct 1, 2015 at 3:01 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Lisa Johnson, left, one of the plaintiffs filing a lawsuit over their ejection from a Napa Valley Wine Train, wipes her eyes during a news conference, Thursday, Oct. 1, 2015, in San Francisco.
