Racer guard Canaan
happy with new boss

MURRAY (AP) — Murray State guard Isaiah Canaan says the promotion of Steve Prohm from assistant to head coach makes him “more than happy.”
Canaan, who was the 2010 Ohio Valley Conference Tournament MVP as a freshman, told The Courier-Journal that Prohm is a relentless recruiter.
The Racers tapped Prohm to replace Billy Kennedy, who left Murray earlier this month for Texas A&M.
Prohm had been Kennedy’s top assistant the past five years.
Canaan, a Biloxi, Miss., resident, said there’s no question Prohm recruited him and is dedicated to the team.

Titans’ WR Williams
wants to play more

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Damian Williams is aiming to earn more playing time headed into his second season in the NFL.
Williams had 16 catches for 219 yards in 2010 after being a third-round draft choice out of Southern Cal.
Williams arrived in Nashville recently to work out with teammates during the NFL’s lockout.
He’s currently working on improving his stability and on ways to avoid injuries moving forward.

Quarterback Rusty Smith, who has been a regular at team workouts, said Williams is committed. As rookies last season, Smith and Williams regularly worked out together focusing on routes.
