(BOSTON) — Boston College has hired Steve Addazio as its new head football coach.
Addazio served as Temple’s head coach the past two seasons, posting a record of 13-11. From 2005-2010 Addazio was part of Urban Meyer’s staff at Florida where he was part of two national title-winning teams. He was the Gators’ offensive coordinator his final two years in Gainesville.
“Steve Addazio brings three critical traits to Boston College football,” Boston College athletic director Brad Bates said. “First, he genuinely cares about his students and will facilitate their formation and development in meaningful ways that create a family culture extending into the entire BC community. Second, he has a passion that is contagious and an energy that will motivate those fortunate to meet him. Finally, he is a proven winner with an extensive history of success as an assistant and head coach that includes two national championships.
Addazio takes over a Boston College team that finished last this season in the Atlantic division of the ACC, with an overall record of 2-10.
