Another Tragedy Strikes Australia — 8 Children Have Been Found Slain In A Suburban Home

This is just sickening.

Following this week’s tragedy in Australia where two captives were killed by a gunman in a Sydney hostage situation, another disgusting act has just befell the country on Friday.

According to Police, eight children have been found dead in a suburban home in the city of Cairns.

The eight kids range in age from 18 mos. to 15 years, and were found next to a 34-year-old woman who somehow survived her wounds; and we’re hearing that they were all related.

While Australian police told the country that the deaths are an isolated incident and that there’s no need to worry about further harm, a woman named Lisa Thaiday offered even more to the story.

According to Lisa, the adult woman was actually her cousin and was also the mother of all eight kids, and is not under Police custody.

And to make it worse, her ninth child, a 20-year-old son, reportedly came home to discover most of his family stabbed to death.

We honestly cannot imagine what this community is going through right now.

We’ll update you as more information on this horrifying case comes out.

Pittsburgh Football Head Coach Search: Latest News and Speculation on Position

With Paul Chryst headed to Wisconsin, the University of Pittsburgh has begun its search for a new head coach.

Offensive coordinator Joe Rudolph will serve as the interim head coach for the time being, but KDKA-TV’s Rich Walsh has a pair of names already on the school’s radar:

Head coach at Marshall for the past five seasons, Doc Holliday has led the Thundering Herd to consecutive 10-win seasons, including a 12-1 showing this year fueled by an explosive offensive attack. He has over 30 years of coaching experience at the collegiate level and is widely regarded as one of the top recruiters in the nation. 

He has been especially successful recruiting in the southeast corner of the country and could potentially extended Pittsburgh’s pipeline. 

“It’s just been a great area for us. I love South Florida kids,” he said, via The Palm Beach Post‘s Dave George. “They’ve got big ol’ hearts, they love football and they’re extremely tough.”

Pat Narduzzi, the defensive coordinator at Michigan State, has been a candidate to leave for a head-coaching job for several years now. 

Coming to Lansing with Mark Dantonio in 2007, the 48-year-old has established the Spartans as one of the most physical, dominant defensive teams in the country. They have been in the top seven nationally in yards allowed per game in each of the last four seasons, per Sports-Reference.com

Pittsburgh has typically been a good defensive team over that span as well, but Narduzzi would bring a culture and toughness that is rare. 

Ultimately, it’s two very different targets for Pitt, and it’s a decision the school needs to get right. The Panthers have had a ton of turnover at the position since 2010, and athletic director Steve Pederson was just let go for an inability to find the right leader. 

Don’t be surprised if Pitt takes its time with this one.
