Michigan State Hiring Former Boston College Offensive Line Coach Jim Bollman As Offensive Coordinator

Boston College football's former offensive line coach / running game coordinator is on the move again.

Jim Bollman is on the move again. Michigan State is set to hire the former Boston College offensive line coach as the program's next offensive coordinator, according to Footballscoop.com and coachingsearch.com. Michigan State has not confirmed the news.

Following his one-year stint with the Eagles, Bollman was hired by Purdue this season by first-year coach Darrell Hazell. He leaves the Boilermakers program without having coached a down as offensive line coach. The position on Mark Dantonio's staff opened up after Dan Roushar left to become the New Orleans Saints running backs coach.

Ohio State fans love to follow this guy around, but I can't get too worked up about Bollman's one year on the Heights. Yes, Boston College's O-Line was pretty terrible as far as Boston College O-Lines go (e.g. 102nd nationally in sacks allowed last season). The Eagles also couldn't get anything going on the ground, with something like half of all running plays going for no gain or negative yards. Still, I'm not sure how much of the blame lies with Bollman and how much of that was an accumulation of four years of football under Spaziani.

Crazy to think that of the nine staffers on BC football's coaching staff last season, a majority of those coordinator and position coaches ended up getting what amounts to a promotion this offseason.

Best of luck to Bollman at Michigan State.
