Here is the latest Michigan sports news from The Associated Press
DETROIT (AP) — Tyler Bertuzzi scored 15 seconds into overtime and Bobby Ryan became the first player to score four times in his first three games with Detroit, leading the Red Wings to a 3-2 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets. Bertuzzi was credited with the winning goal after the puck went off him and into the net following a rebound off Dylan Larkin’s shot.
DETROIT (AP) — Brad Holmes was not even a candidate when the Detroit Lions began their search for a general manager nearly two months ago. Holmes won the Lions over and landed a job he didn’t dream of when his NFL career began as a public relations intern in 2003. The Lions love Holmes’ combination of leadership skills, intelligence and personality along with his collaborative approaches. Holmes’ ability to use analytics to project which players will have success in the league particularly impressed the Lions. Holmes joins Atlanta’s Terry Fontenot, Miami’s Chris Grier and Cleveland’s Andrew Berry as Black general managers in the NFL.
