The Arizona Cardinals have hired the first female coach in NFL history. Jen Welter will work with the team's inside linebackers throughout training camp and the preseason as one of seven interns. "I wanted to open that door," said Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians. "Coaching is nothing more than teaching.

Alex Rocco, the veteran tough-guy character actor with the gravelly voice best known for playing mobster and Las Vegas casino owner Moe Greene in The Godfather, died Saturday. He was 79. Rocco had many other roles, including the voice of the cigar-smoking chairman of the studio behind Itchy and Scratchy on The Simpsons and an ant in A Bug's Life. "That was my greatest prize ever in life, because I did about eight lines as an ant, and I think I made over a million dollars," he said in 2012.

Mexico's most notorious drug lord, Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, broke out of a high-security prison on Saturday night for the second time, escaping in a tunnel built right under his cell, and heaping embarrassment on President Enrique Pena Nieto. The kingpin snuck out of the prison through a subterranean tunnel more than one mile long that ended at an abandoned property near the local town, National Security Commissioner Monte Alejandro Rubido told a news conference. Guzman was one of the world's top crime bosses, running the powerful Sinaloa Cartel, which has smuggled billions of dollars worth of cocaine, marijuana and methamphetamines into the United States and fought vicious turf wars with other Mexican gangs.
