Chestnut Hill, MA (Sports Network) - Steve Addazio has been named the new head football coach at Boston College.
The 53-year-old Addazio heads to the Heights after just two seasons as Temple's head coach, during which he compiled a 13-11 record with one bowl berth. He fills the slot vacated by Frank Spaziani, who was fired on Nov. 25.
"Steve Addazio brings three critical traits to Boston College football," director of athletics Brad Bates said on Tuesday. "First, he genuinely cares about his students and will facilitate their formation and development in meaningful ways that creates 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. We are very excited to have Steve Addazio leading Boston College football and look forward to an extraordinary future."
