The Prince and Princess of Wales are making their first overseas trip since the death of Queen Elizabeth II in September. The trip that began Wednesday is an occasion for Prince William and his wife, Kate, to show the world as much about who they are not as who they are. With their three-day visit to Boston, the couple hope to demonstrate that they aren’t the last remnants of a dying institution. Their foray is focused on William’s initiative to find the next generation of environmental entrepreneurs and will be supplemented with trips to an anti-poverty program, child development researchers and local flood defenses.

UAB has hired former NFL quarterback Trent Dilfer as its next head coach. UAB athletic director Mark Ingram announced the hiring Wednesday. Dilfer, who won a Super Bowl with the Baltimore Ravens in 2000, has been the head coach at Lipscomb Academy in Nashville, Tennessee, since 2019. He has guided the school to three state championship games, including one scheduled for Thursday against Christ Presbyterian Academy. He has no previous college coaching experience. No terms were announced pending formal approval of Dilfer’s contract from the Board of Trustees.

The Boston Athletic Association has named Jack Fleming as its new president and chief executive officer. The association that manages the Boston Marathon announced the hire Wednesday in a statement. Fleming will assume the post immediately. He replaces Thomas Grilk after he stepped down from his posts on April 30 as part of a planned transition into an advisory role. Fleming had been serving as acting CEO since May 1. His appointment follows a five-month national search. He was previously the association's CEO from 2017 to 2022. He’s also served various other roles in the organization since 1992.

In a normal year, University of Idaho students would be bustling between classes and the library, cramming for finals and looking forward to winter break. But on Wednesday a little less than half the students appear to have switched to online classes after four of their classmates were stabbed to death. Blaine Eckles is the university's dean of students. He hopes candlelight vigils set to be held across the state tonight will offer some temporary comfort amid grief and fear. The killings remain unsolved, and police have not yet named a person of interest in the case. Idaho Gov. Brad Little is directing $1 million in emergency funds toward the investigation, and the FBI has 44 agents assigned.
