Brad Bates has had a week to put together his priority list for Boston College’s next football coach. The new Boston College Director of Athletics said that he will look in all areas to find the right person to get the Eagles back into a winning mode.
Now we are about to begin Phase II, which means that Bates will start interviewing candidates. That process should be completed during the next several days. If Bates can find a connection, it could be done quickly and BC could have a coach by the middle of next week. But if Bates wants to interview five or six candidates and then decide, it could take a while longer.
Bates made it clear that head coaching experience is a key factor, but not a deal breaking priority. With that in mind, here’s the list that I think Bates should put together.
