8. The Good News Is, Someone Will Probably Hire You As A Defensive Coordinator In 2013. Frank Spaziani, Boston College. Well, at least they beat Maryland on Saturday. Still, B.C. is just 2-6 and was barely able to outlast a Maryland squad that was starting (and losing) its fourth quarterback of the season.
