Boston College football had some bright spots last season, but Coach Steven Addazio looks to be even better in 2018. Can the Eagles continue to improve?
The Boston College Eagles have hit a resurgence under Coach Steve Addazio. After Tom O’Brien foolishly left the Eagles in 2006, he gave way to Jeff Jagodzinski. Jagodzinski posted a 20-8 record at Boston College before interviewing for the New York Jets head coaching job and subsequently being fired by the Eagles in a public standoff between he and the B.C. athletic director.
That was the beginning of a decline as Frank Spaziani took over the Eagles and while starting off with 15 wins from 2009-2010, then slumped to a 6-18 record in his final two seasons. Steve Addazio came to Boston College from Temple where he went 9-4 in 2011 and 4-7 in 2012. The Eagles took a reach on a guy with a 13-11 record and it has paid off.
Addazio might not have broken into the nine or ten win O’Brien territory just yet, but the Eagles are rebuilt and have posted back to back bowl trips and winning records. The offense is young and has firepower which is something they haven’t been able to say in some time. The Eagles finished 66th per the S&P+ in 2017 and will have a much improved 2018.
