Frank Spaziani Names Jim Bollman Offensive Line Coach/Running Game Coordinator

Spaz has named former Ohio State offensive coordinator and offensive line coach Jim Bollman to the Boston College football staff. Bollman will serve as offensive line coach/running game coordinator (whatever this means).

Nice things were said by all.

Here's Spaz:

"I am very pleased to welcome Jim to the Boston College staff," Spaziani said. "As a former offensive coordinator and offensive line coach for the Ohio State Buckeyes, Jim brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our program."

And Bollman:

"I am very excited about this opportunity," Bollman said. "One of the most important and rewarding parts of my career has been working with outstanding people, and I look forward to working with Frank Spaziani and his staff. I'm very familiar with the ACC, having coached at NC State and Virginia. Boston College has a great offensive line tradition and has produced some of the best talent in the NFL. I look forward to the challenge of continuing and enhancing that tradition."

Bollman has made previous coaching stops with the Chicago Bears, Philadelphia Eagles and at Michigan State, Virginia, Youngstown State, North Carolina State and Miami (Ohio).

I literally haven't the first clue about this hire, but just as this announcement was made, our Twitter account immediately lit up with Tweets like this:

"I can't emphasize to @BCInterruption, @bcatleagle enough: you've hired the worst O-line coach in America. Godspeed."

... and this:

"Congrats on hiring your new OL Coach/Three-and-out Coordinator fellas. #Bollman"

So, well, uhh, yeah.

At the bottom of the release, there is also news of the fate of now former Offensive Line coach Sean Devine. Devine will now coach BC's tight ends and work with the offense. Devine has been a key recruiter for Spaz, but the offensive line has continued to regress under his watch the last few seasons.
