Pros outweigh the cons for BC if Christian returns

Since hiring Jim Christian as its head basketball coach in 2014, Boston College has posted a 20-42 overall record. The team is currently in the midst of a 17-game losing streak, and should the Eagles lose at home to Clemson on Saturday, they’ll be the first squad in ACC history to go 0-18 in conference play.

BC has made a home in the league’s basement under Christian’s watch, and if it fails to win another game this year, its seven wins will be the program’s lowest single-season total since 1998-99.

So what needs to be done for the program to turn things around?

Ironically, the first step would be to retain Christian.
