Spaz Sounds Off On Kevin Rogers' Departure

Heights Sports recently sat down with Coach Spaziani to discuss the most recent football staff turnover. Here is what Spaz had to say about former Boston College OC Kevin Rogers.

The Heights: Was there any thought about bringing Kevin Rogers back as offensive coordinator?
Spaziani: Well Kevin was sick. So that precluded anything. His health is the major issue.
The Heights: There is a report that Rogers is the new QB coach at Temple, so he is still sick?
Spaziani: Oh I don't know that. I haven't heard that.

Clearly not, as Spaz told HD as recently as this Monday that Rogers "never returned from his leave of absence for health reasons."

This wouldn't be the first time Spaz has shirked the questions of Rogers' condition. Here is an excerpt from Spaz's September 14 mid-week presser, when asked about Rogers.

"Q. Kevin Rogers is pretty well known down in this area, is there any chance he returns this season?
COACH SPAZIANI: Well, I don't know. That's up to -- I'm not sure what the status of that is right now.

Q. Has it been an issue up until this week at all? Obviously --
COACH SPAZIANI: Well, what are you talking about, his health?

Q. In terms of his availability or the offense obviously has not been --
COACH SPAZIANI: No, no, he's been on the job every day."

Regardless of all the redirects here, the fact is that four of BC football's offensive assistants/coordinators have left the program for Rutgers (Brock and Sirmans) and Temple (Day and Rogers) -- all within the last week. That's a couple of key recruiters, the program's past two offensive coordinators and a third that was patiently waiting in the wings for the position to open up.

The pressure will be on Spaz's new offensive coordinator (Martin) and assistants (Dasai, Devine, Bollman and Smith) to turn around an offense that ranked 112th nationally last season.
