The New Coach Is...

Temple head coach Steve Addazio will be named the next head coach at Boston College replacing Frank Spaziani according to an e-mail from BC.

Addazio, who has New England ties and was a solid recruiter for the Florida Gators in the area under Urban Meyer and was 13-11 in his two years at Temple, is a surprise choice by the Eagles after numbers reports said it was down to Notre Dame assistant coach Bob Diaco, Ball State head coach Pete Lembo and New Orleans Saints offensive line coach Aaron Kromer.

Confirmation of the announcement came in an e-mail to fans from Athletic Director Bill Bates saying...

"As a valued member of our community, it is with great pleasure that I share with you first that Steve Addazio will be announced as the next Head Football Coach at Boston College this evening. A New England native, Steve joins us from Temple where he has served as head coach the past two seasons. Steve brings to the Heights a background of football success that includes two years of head coaching experience and six years on a Florida staff that won two national championships. More importantly, his value system will lead our football program in ways that will make us all proud to be Eagles.

We ask that you join the BC Community in welcoming Steve to Chestnut Hill. A press conference to formally introduce Steve is scheduled for tomorrow. You may follow all of the action on bceagles.com.

Thank you for all you do for Boston College. Go Eagles!"
