As a valued stakeholder in our football program, I wanted you to be among the first to know that Frank Spaziani and I met today. Coach Spaziani will not remain as our football coach, effective immediately. Coach Spaz and I have met with the team and we will issue a press release shortly.
It is with deep gratitude that we recognize the many wonderful
contributions Coach Spaziani has made to Boston College during his 16
years in Chestnut Hill. He and his staff have devoted countless hours to
our institution and our student-athletes. We thank them and wish them
Please know that I understand how important a successful football
program is to you and our entire University community. We will begin a
search for a new head football coach immediately. We will be seeking a
leader whose vision of our football program mirrors the mission of our
University, whose first priority is the development of our
student-athletes and whose goal is to return our program to national
prominence, tenaciously pursing the mantra "Ever to Excel."
I know how much you treasure the rich tradition and heritage of our
football program, and I promise we will do our very best to find the
right person to be your football coach. Thank you for your loyalty and
continued support through this period.
Director of Athletics
