Yet another bonus for Utes' Krystkowiak. Also, BYU to play in Miami Beach against someone from ... America.

POLICING THE COURT

Utah basketball coach Larry Krystkowiak has agreed to a contract extension that will run through the 2018-19 season.

Among the inducements: a $375,000 bonus if he stays through 2016-17 and another $375,000 if he stays through the length of the contract.

Not to mention any reward money he makes apprehending bicycle thieves.

DECEPTION CENTRAL

Former Boise State football coach Chris Petersen tells USA Today that at Washington he can walk around Seattle and “no one has a clue who I am.”

Looks like the Statue of Liberty play still has ‘em looking the other way.

SLEEPYTOWN

Lamar Odom signed a contract with the New York Knicks at the end of the season.

After all the publicity over marrying a Kardashian, he obvously just needed to go someplace where he wouldn’t be hounded by the media.

BET ON IT

Jeff Van Gundy, who coached the Houston Rockets for four years, picked the Rockets to win the NBA title.

In other news, Nancy Pelosi is calling for a Democratic landslide in the mid-term elections.

MOTIVATING FACTOR

The NCAA is eliminating rules that limit the number of meals and snacks student-athletes can eat.

Apparently the governing organization agreed with Bill Murray in “What about Bob?”: “Pile it high and deep, will ya, please?”

NEW DIRECTION

The Golden State Warriors are thinking of changing their name.

But not their nickname.

With a pending move across the bay, they may return to their original name: San Francisco Warriors.

Does this mean the Utes will become the University of Deseret Utes?

A PLACE APART

Stories say future ballparks could include residential units just beyond the outfield.

At last, a place for fans to go while Mike Napoli settles into his stance.

INTERNATIONAL INTRIGUE

U.S.-Russia tension?

Not necessarily.

Ex-Jazz forward Andrei Kirilenko is joining with Hooters restaurants to open five locations, including one in Moscow.

In other words, he’s bridging the East-West gap.

As he used to rhetorically say when he played in Utah, “What I can do?”

APPARENTLY AMERICAN

Reports said on Monday that BYU is slotted to play in the inaugural Miami Beach Bowl against an American Athletic Conference opponent.

The Cougars know where Miami is. But the American Athletic Conference?

They’re working on it.

PLAN B

Newly hired Tennessee basketball coach Donnie Tyndall on not being the Vols’ first choice: “Look at her (pointing to his fiance). Look at me. I probably wasn’t her first choice, either.”
