Boston College Athletics released some rather shocking news on Wednesday when they announced that Special Teams Coach Mike Dawson resigned to pursue opportunities outside of football. This is a bizarre move because in most cases most coaches leave to take other positions. You have to wonder what job he is pursuing. Contrary to reports, he is not joining the staff of BC Interruption.
Coach Spaz had nothing but positive things to say about his exiting coach:
"Mike Dawson has been a valuable member of our staff for the past three seasons," Coach Frank Spaziani said. "We wish him nothing but the best as he heads down a new career path. I'm certain he will be a success wherever his career path leads him."
It was a mixed year for BC special teams as we saw Ryan Quigley become an elite punter, but Nate Freese seemed to take a step back on field goal attempts this season (maybe he got tired of "Middle Schmiddle"). This now leaves BC with two coaching positions to fill -- the other being offensive coordinator. Could be three if Ryan Day leaves to join Urban Meyer's staff at Ohio State?
