OLYMPICS

Nathan Chen flipped, whirled, and even punched his way to a world-record score in the men’s figure skating short program at the Beijing Olympics. Next up for the Salt Lake City native: an expected and long-awaited coronation as Olympic champion. Chen made history in a historic venue on Tuesday, crushing the world record with a score of 113.97 at Capital Indoor Stadium, the site of the 1971 ping pong diplomacy matches between the United States and China.

NFL

According to a report from ESPN, the Houston Texans will name East Texas native Lovie Smith as their next head coach. They hired Smith as the team’s defensive coordinator last March, and that came after the University of Illinois fired him. He went 17-39 over five years.

Also, according to ESPN, the New Orleans Saints informed defensive coordinator Dennis Allen that they are hiring him as their next head coach. Allen, 49, will replace his longtime boss, Sean Payton, who stepped away two weeks ago. It will be Allen’s second stint as a head coach after he went 8-28 as coach of the Raiders from 2012 to 2014.
