It is getting close to crunch time on a decision to find the next athletic director at Boston College. The first step could come as early as Friday when the Boston College Board of Trustees holds a regularly scheduled meeting, with a prime topic of discussion being the candidates to replace outgoing BC Gene DeFilippo who will retire on Sunday.
BC President Father William Leahy reportedly has discussed the candidates with a focus group composed of several people, including BC VP Leo Sullivan, Andy Boynton, the Dean of BC’s Carroll School of Management and Fr. Jack Butler, BC’s newly appointed Mission Minister VP and a leading contender to replace Father Leahy when he retires.
That group, with Sullivan being the point man in the search, has identified 3 areas of concern for the next AD.
