Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant has always said that the Oklahoma town is his home and would help in the community when he could.

Recently, while watching television images of how much destruction the tornado did in the suburb of Moore, Oklahoma, the popular NBA star offered his help with a pledge of $1 million.

The likeable former University of Texas star has lived in Oklahoma City for five years, ever since the Seattle SuperSonics franchise moved there in 2008.

The Thunder’s organization and NBA players association also pledged a $1 million dollars each to the tornado victims.

Meyer names Tom Herman as offensive coordinator/QB’s coach

Tom Herman, the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Iowa State University the past three years, and before that the same position for record-setting offenses at Rice University, has been named offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Ohio State by new head coach Urban Meyer.

Herman’s 2011 Iowa State offense, which he will coach on December 30 in the Pinstripe Bowl against Rutgers at Yankee Stadium, averages 181.2 rushing yards and 211.7 passing yards per game. The Cyclones put up 44 points in a triple-overtime win over Iowa and accumulated 37 in a double-overtime upset of then-undefeated and then-#2 Oklahoma State.

“To work with and for Coach Meyer is an exciting opportunity for me,” Herman said. “i am really looking forward to working with him and learning his offensive systems. And to be able to coach with him at The Ohio State University is simply a dream come true.”

Herman was born in Cincinnati and still has family there, although he was raised in Simi Valley, California. He played collegiately at California Lutheran, graduating in 1997 with a degree in business administration. He earned a master’s degree in education from the University of Texas.

Herman has 11 years of experience as a college coach, including seven seasons as an offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach, and 13 when his two seasons, 1999-2000, as a graduate assistant at Texas are included. He coached four years at Sam Houston State (2001-04), serving as receivers coach and special teams coordinator. He also spent two years at Texas State (2005-06) and two years at Rice (2007-08) as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

While his Texas State offenses led the Southland Conference in total offense each season, his stint at Rice was really notable. His offenses broke over 40 school records and in his second season the Owls won 10 games and went to a bowl for the first time since 1954.

Furthermore, Rice ranked in the Top 10 nationally in 2008 in passing offense (5th; 327.8), scoring offense (T8th; 41.6) and total offense (10th; 472.3). Two Rice receivers had more than 1,300 yards receiving that year, tight end James Casey had 111 catches and quarterback Chase Clement was the Conference USA MVP.

Herman and his wife, Michelle, have a daughter, Priya, and a son, Maddock.

Shipley’s knee was injured in the Bengals’ 24-22 loss in Denver last Sunday. He caught three passes for 15 yards.

Shipley, a third-round draft pick from the University of Texas in 2010 and quickly fit in to the Bengals offensive plans, becoming the team’s dependable third-down receiver. He led AFC rookie receivers with 600 yards and he tied fellow rookie and teammate Jermaine Gresham for the AFC lead with 52 catches.

Andre Caldwell, the Bengals fourth-year veteran, will replace Shipley in the offense.
