INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis Colts have hired Tom McMahon as their new special teams coordinator. McMahon was the special teams coach in Kansas City last season, and had the same job in St. Louis from 2009-11. McMahon replaces Marwan Maalouf, who left after one season with the Colts.
CHICAGO (AP) — Saying they were his decisions and his mistake, Lance Armstrong told Oprah Winfrey in an interview that he used performance-enhancing drugs to win the Tour de France and couldn’t have won without the drugs. Armstrong answered “yes” when asked if he utilized EPO, blood doping and transfusions, testosterone, cortisone and human growth hormone, saying he did it in all seven of his Tour wins. The confession follows a decade of denials by Armstrong, who was stripped of his titles in the wake of a U.S. Anti-Doping Agency report last October.
