Lauletta, Leonard are FCS standouts at Senior Bowl

  Lauletta, Leonard are FCS standouts at Senior Bowl (STATS) - FCS players usually feel they have to do more than their FBS counterparts to impress NFL teams and answer any questions about their level of competition in college. Richmond quarterback Kyle Lauletta is pretty good at shaking off that concern. He’s even better at slinging a football. Lauletta was the offensive standout and South Carolina State outside linebacker Darius Leonard the defensive standout as their South team routed the North 45-16 at the Reese’s Senior Bowl on Saturday in Mobile, Alabama.

Loris Karius saved the England striker’s initial effort from the spot, but was floored by the other - his 100th Premier League strike - with the game finishing 2-2. The Senegal international was engaged in seven duels during that period and won 86% of them.

Thomas Christiansen has been sacked by Leeds United, the Championship club have confirmed.

Appointed ahead of the 2017-18 season, Christiansen enjoyed a fine start to life at Elland Road but a seven-match winless run - including a shock FA Cup third-round defeat at fourth-tier Newport County - has prompted the club to dispense with his services.

Leeds are now seeking their 10th full-time managerial appointment in the six years following Simon Grayson's departure in February 2012.

Sunday's announcement came a day after a 4-1 home thrashing at the hands of Cardiff City, managed by one of the men to fill the Elland Road hotseat during that turbulent period, Neil Warnock.

Christiansen leaves the club 10th in the Championship, seven points adrift of the play-off places.

"Leeds United can confirm that head coach Thomas Christiansen has left the club," read a brief statement.

"Chairman Andrea Radrizzani and the board of directors would like to thank Thomas and his staff for their hard work over the past eight months. The club will be making no further comment at this time."
