Pegula: No, it’s not the same situation. It’s a different team, different issues. We need to get better.

There have been a lot of reports and speculation since the end of the season about Doug Whaley’s future. You’ve mentioned you enjoyed working with him. How tough was it that he kind of got strung along here a little bit in the last few months?

Terry, it’s been reported that Brandon Beane, the assistant GM in Carolina, is a candidate. Can you confirm that?

Pegula: We haven’t started any — had one discussion regarding who our candidate is.

For a mere $21 million, Verizon has earned the right to stream the Ravens-Jaguars game from London on Sept. 24, The Wall Street Journal reports.

The matchup will be shown on three Verizon-owned platforms: AOL, Complex and go90, the report said. It could also end up on Yahoo if Verizon’s pending $4.5 billion deal for that company is finalized.

Yahoo was the NFL’s partner the first time it tried a streaming-only broadcast in 2015. The rights to that London-based Jaguars-Bills game went for $15 million. cubs_958
