SKIING

Skier Miller, Son's Mom Make Custody Pact, For Now

NEW YORK -- Olympic skier Bode Miller and former Marine Sara McKenna have reached a temporary truce in their custody fight over their 14-month-old son.

McKenna and the Sochi bronze medalist will share time with the toddler over the next four months.

Monday's agreement came shortly before both parents were to testify at a Manhattan Family Court hearing.

Miller declined to comment. McKenna says it's best the hearing will wait until more facts are gathered.

The case spurred concern among women's rights activists last year. A judge said McKenna had been "irresponsible" by moving while pregnant to New York from California.

Originally from Easton, N.H., Miller lives in California and claimed paternity there. McKenna moved to attend Columbia University.

A New York appellate court overturned that ruling. The dispute has been in both California and New York courts.

NBA

Knicks, Jazz Fire Coaches; Ademan Retires

NEW YORK -- Mike Woodson was fired as coach the New York Knicks on Monday after his team fell from division champions to out of the playoffs in one season.

Phil Jackson, in his first big move since becoming team president in March, said in a statement "the time has come for change throughout the franchise."

The dismissal comes shortly after the Knicks completed a 37-45 season that began with their belief they were a serious contender.

Instead, they started poorly, making Woodson's job security practically a season-long distraction. A late surge wasn't good enough for a postseason spot or another year for Woodson. He has a career record of 315-365.

JAZZ: Tyrone Corbin won't be returning as Utah's coach.

The Jazz announced that the team won't be offering Corbin a new contract. He became head coach on Feb. 10, 2011, following the resignation of Jerry Sloan.

Corbin ends his stint with the Jazz with a 112-146 record. He guided the team to a winning record in two of his three full seasons and a playoff appearance in 2012. But the Jazz were dismal this season, going 25-57.

TIMBERWOLVES: Minnesota coach Rick Adelman is retiring after 23 seasons in the NBA.

Adelman made the announcement five days after the Wolves wrapped up a disappointing 40-42 season.

The decision brings to an end to a career that includes 1,042 victories, eighth on the NBA's career list. He coached Western Conference powers in Portland and Sacramento and also had stops in Golden State and Houston.

Adelman says the time is right for him to step aside and spend more time with his wife, Mary Kay, who has been treated for seizures over the last two years. He also thinks the Wolves need a fresh voice to help them try to persuade star power forward Kevin Love to remain in Minnesota.

BULLS: Chicago center Joakim Noah was named Defensive Player of the Year. He joins Michael Jordan in 1988 as the only Bulls players to win the award.

The recognition comes after he helped Chicago win 48 games and capture home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs despite losing Derrick Rose to a season-ending knee injury and trading away Luol Deng. It also comes at a time when he's getting about as much praise for his ability on offense after being known primarily for his defense and rebounding.

NFL

Former WR Keyshawn Johnson Arrested in Domestic Dispute

CALABASAS, Calif. -- The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department says former NFL and Southern California receiver Keyshawn Johnson has been arrested after a report of a domestic dispute.

A Sheriff's Department statement says deputies responded to a residence in Calabasas at 12:48 a.m. Monday and determined the resident and his ex-girlfriend were involved in a domestic dispute, and the resident was arrested for misdemeanor domestic battery.

The department subsequently identified the resident as Johnson, who posted bond at 9:15 a.m. and was released.

In the NFL, Johnson played for the New York Jets, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Dallas Cowboys and Carolina Panthers.

He's currently an ESPN commentator and analyst. ESPN says it's aware of the arrest and is looking into the matter.
