Our daily scouring of the worldwide web produced a couple of tasty Tuesday tidbits that should be of interest to Arizona sports fans.
Offering No. 1: A brief but impressive dunking display put on by Aaron Gordon and shared by the Orlando Magic's PR staff.
Cool enough in a small-sample-size sort of way. But folks around these parts might be a little less wowed, since we've seen similar exhibitions from Gordon when there were actual defenders on the court and the baskets counted.
And then there's this listing of top 10 offensive coordinators who could find themselves in line for head coaching jobs -- produced by intrepid FOXSports.com college football insider Bruce Feldman. Checking in at No. 8 is ASU's Mike Norvell.
This high regard also comes as no shock to us desert dwellers. And as Feldman astutely noted, Norvell's recently renegotiated $700,000 salary will almost certainly be a factor in whether he's interested in moving on. Translation: It'll probably take more than a stepping-stone position or an opportunity at a destitute program.
