It’s no secret that Boston College’s football program was stuck in the mud. Over two seasons, the Eagles lost 12 straight ACC games before breaking through on Saturday at NC State for the first time since the 2014 season finale against Syracuse.
With that in mind, there becomes a sense of who to blame, and, not coincidentally, that falls on the head coach of the program. After guiding the Eagles to back-to-back seven-win seasons in his first two years, Steve Addazio was considered one of the rising stars of college football’s coaching ranks. Two years later, bowl eligibility isn’t out of the question, but getting there is proving trickier than expected.
The proverbial “hot seat” question has its merits even after this past weekend. For the second straight year, Addazio’s offense ranks among the worst in college football. Building his team around a power running game, Boston College, which once ranked among the nation’s best rushing offenses, is in the lower half of the FBS. There is success, but there’s also inconsistency; the win over NC State improved the passing offense over 10 spots in the national statistical rankings — to No. 116.
