According to a report in the Philadelphia Inquirer, former Boston College offensive coordinator Kevin Rogers has accepted the quarterbacks coach position on Steve Addazio's Temple staff.

"Sources have confirmed an OwlScoop report that former Boston College offensive coordinator Kevin Rogers will be joining the Owls staff. He'd spent the previous five seasons as the QB coach with the Minnesota Vikings, where he worked with Brett Favre."

You couldn't have scripted a more bizarre ending to this story.

Rogers, who took a medical leave of absence just two games into his stint as Boston College's offensive coordinator and was not retained on this year's staff, is now working with Ryan Day, Temple's new co-offensive coordinator. As BC's WR coach, Day was passed over (at least) three times by BC for the Eagles' offensive coordinator position, first by Gary Tranquill, then by Kevin Rogers, Dave Brock and finally Doug Martin.

Earlier today, Spaz told HD that there was nothing more to the departures of Brock, Day and Sirmans than career opportunities, as Brock and Day wanted to be offensive coordinators. Spaz added that Kevin Rogers "never returned from his leave of absence for health reasons."

So ... Rogers never returned to BC for health reasons, but now is going from offensive coordinator at BC to quarterbacks coach at Temple. Though Temple and BC's football programs are seemingly going in opposite directions, this move is not a career advancement.

I, for one, am happy to see that Rogers' medical issues are now behind him as he continues his career working with Ryan Day, Addazio and the Owls quarterbacks. Best of luck to Rogers at Temple.
