With each new major collegiate football coaching opening, the name of Miami Coach Jimmy Johnson comes up as a possible replacement--and there is now talk that he may replace Ted Tollner at USC. "In this business, you always have to have an open mind," Johnson told The Miami News. "Those are the cold, hard facts."

Washington Wizards big man Nene has been suspended for one game by the NBA after grabbing, shoving and threatening to strike Chicago Bulls forward Jimmy Butler in Game 3 of their playoff series on Friday night. In a closely contested, back-and-forth game that Chicago eventually won, 100-97, the 6-foot-11 Brazilian was ejected with 8 1/2 minutes left in the fourth quarter after he took exception to Butler bumping into him and incited a brief scuffle. The two players jostled after the bump, coming toe to toe and forehead to forehead before Nene grabbed Butler around the neck.

No, Gabriel Ruelas kept telling himself, it was all wrong. Jimmy Garcia wasn't supposed to die. He, Ruelas, was the one who was supposed to die young. That's the way it had always been in the dreams. Night after night they would come to him in his restless sleep. The circumstances were different, but the result was always the same. Gabe Ruelas dead before his time. Although he has been a boxer since age 12, he never died in the ring in the dreams. Often it would be in a car accident.

The NBC network is beleaguered no more. After nearly a decade in the ratings cellar, NBC is poised to finish the prime-time TV season in May in first place in the coveted advertising demographic of viewers aged 18 to 49.  February's coverage of the Winter Olympics from Sochi, Russia, generated strong viewership and $1.1 billion in revenue, Comcast executives said in announcing the Philadelphia-based company's first-quarter earnings, which exceeded...

He feared he might go down in history as the character who rode his horse right up the state capitol steps and into his office in Baton Rouge, La. He wanted to be remembered instead for his accomplishments as a two-term governor. Or maybe for the 400 or so hillbilly, western and gospel songs he wrote and recorded that got him into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1972.

Every man has his price. What's yours? --Jimmy Hoffa If Danny DeVito were a rubber band, he'd be ready to snap. For two days, the director has been trying to shoot a complicated sequence in "Hoffa," which stars Jack Nicholson as Jimmy Hoffa, dark prince of the American labor movement. Nothing is going right. The sound is garbled. Extras knock over chairs. A flock of pigeons flies across the sound stage's cavernous rafters, making a racket.

I just finished speaking with the post office, more or less begging for the return of our mailman, the Rev. Jimmie Irving, and there he is big as life on the front page of the Metro section ("Change of Address," Sept. 11). There has been a large void left in our neighborhood since the new route change just a month ago. After knowing this gentleman for 21 years, I can honestly say he has never said a harsh word toward anyone, he has always taken the time to say hello and is completely genuine and sincere, a rare person indeed.

In her March 29 article on the Media Awards given by the Assn. of Asian-Pacific Americans Artists ("Jimmie Awards Mark Dispelling of Race Stereotypes"), Claudia Puig mistakenly reported that the Jimmies honor "best" play, "best" TV series, etc. Actually, the awards are more of a symbol of encouragement for progress in the entertainment industry, recognizing the companies, producers and individuals who present honest portrayals of Asian-Pacific Americans and their culture.

Colman McCarthy hit the nail on the head in his commentary on Jimmy Carter and his Haitian negotiations (Oct. 3). I've heard some people claim that Colin Powell, by describing the military holocaust which would surround Lt. Gen. Raoul Cedras if he resisted, was the chief cause of the dictator's withdrawal from power. But McCarthy puts the praise where it is justly due, on Carter's shoulders. By appealing to Cedras' better instincts, by helping Cedras to realize the link between his own and his family's humanity, and that of others, Carter caused Cedras to pause and reassess his actions.

Bastille rockin' the stage, Solange at the turntable, a caviar bar on ice and a Jeff Koons on the lawn. Jimmy Choo knows how to party alright. And party the brand did on Tuesday night in L.A. when creative director Sandra Choi hosted a launch for the new, tomboyish rock 'n' roll-themed CHOO.08 collection and newly redesigned Rodeo Drive store. The bash was held at the Beverly Hills Mid-Century home of Eugenio Lopez Alonso, the international art patron who recently sponsored the opening of the new Museo Jumex contemporary art museum in Mexico City.

L.A. is a place of new beginnings. So it's appropriate that British luxury brand Jimmy Choo should put its best foot forward here now. A new store design concept on Rodeo Drive, a star-studded Hollywood bash at the home of art collector Eugenio Lopez Alonso featuring a performance by pop band Bastille, and the launch of a youthful new rock 'n' roll-themed shoe collection are all part of a bold, new direction for the label and its creative director...

Anne Hathaway has yet to make good on her oft-professed desire to perform in a Broadway musical. Her Oscar-winning turn as Fantine in the 2012 movie version of "Les Miserables" showed that she has the singing chops. And if we need more proof, the actress appeared on NBC's "The Tonight Show" on Tuesday to remind us that she can belt it out as good as Broadway's best. Hathaway, sporting close-cropped hair and a black pant-suit number, was accompanied on the piano by host Jimmy Fallon in a series of rap and hip-hop songs performed in a humorously over-the-top Broadway style.

Stefanie Dolson seems like the type of person who is never at a lack for words. Nor does she appear to be one to fall back on sports cliches when being interviewed after a big game, like, say, the national championship. I'm basing this solely on the senior center's comments after Connecticut's 70-58 victory over Notre Dame on Tuesday to wrap up an undefeated season and a second straight NCAA title. "President Obama, we're baa-aaack!" she said into the ESPN microphone being broadcast inside the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn., and on TV sets across the country.

Former President Carter met his adoring, book-buying public in Portland, Ore., on  Sunday, the Oregonian reports . The 89-year-old statesman signed 1,600 books in about two hours at Powell's Bookstore. Carter's new book is "A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power," but fans were allowed to buy or bring up to six of his books to sign. Carter has published 28 books in all, 26 since leaving the White House in 1981. "A Call to Action" grew out of a meeting at the Carter Center in 2013 that included religious leaders and human rights activists.

When high school senior Sarah Allen checked her email after lacrosse practice on Thursday, she saw an email from USC with the subject line: "A message from dean Erica Muhl. " Puzzled, the Overland Park, Kan., native opened the email and clicked on the link, which took her to a video message from hip-hopper/entrepreneur Dr. Dre (aka Andre Young) and his longtime associate, music mega-producer Jimmy Iovine. “The Trojan family is excited to offer you a spot in the class of 2018,” Young said as he sat in a music studio.
