Minnesota Vikings QB Coach Kevin Rogers Emerges As Leading Contender For BC Offensive Coordinator?

Yesterday, Mark Blaudschun reported that Minnesota Vikings quarterback coach Kevin Rogers has emerged as the leading contender to become the next Boston College offensive coordinator:

"Minnesota Vikings quarterbacks coach Kevin Rogers has emerged as the leading contender to become the next Boston College offensive coordinator, according to several sources at the school and in the NFL.

Rogers, who has been the Vikings quarterbacks coach for five years, has a strong college pedigree. At Syracuse (1991-98), he helped develop Donovan McNabb, and at Virginia Tech (2002-05), he helped quarterback Brian Randall emerge as the ACC Offensive Player of the Year in 2004."

So according to Blauds, the man responsible for coddling Brett Favre's ego, and developing QBs Tavaris Jackson and Patrick Ramsey is the leading candidate to replace Gary Tranquill as BC's offensive coordinator? So how exactly should I feel about this news?

It's unclear just how valid this report is -- whether it's a "Whipple to UConn" virtual lock or, you know, will actually happen. As Gobbler Country points out, I suppose you could take this report with a grain of salt considering Blauds spells Bryan Randall's name wrong, and promises the ACC football schedule this weekend, when we've been told it won't be out until next week.

Rogers is no stranger to the ACC, having served as the quarterback coach under Frank Beamer at Virginia Tech from 2002-2005. For what it's worth, furrer4heisman thinks this would be a good move for the Eagles.

"As Darryl Slater tweets, the possible Rogers-to-BC move would definitely add a layer of intrigue to the Virginia Tech-Boston College rivalry. It would also be a good hire for the Eagles, who have a promising young quarterback they're trying to develop in Chase Rettig."

I'm not sure how much the Rogers' hiring will stoke the flames of the budding Eagles-Hokies rivalry, but I'm all for the move if Hokies' writers approve. At this point, I'm almost indifferent to whoever the school hires. Rogers, Day, Brock, Hofher ... whomever. I'm just ready for a new BC offensive coordinator and eager to put this season's offensive output in the my rear-view mirror.
