Boston College Daily Links: Doug Martin Hire Reactions

Frank Spaziani turns to Doug Martin (
"Coach Spaziani wants me to bring a system in there that our players can believe in and the coaches can believe in and we’ll all work together toward a common goal," Martin said by phone from his home in New Mexico. Obviously he has his parameters that he wants our offense to look like. He and I are pretty much on the same page and that is why this is a good fit."

Boston College hires new offensive coordinator (
The saddest #BlaudsTweet ever. "Martin replaces Dave Brock, who had replaced Kevin Rogers, who took a medical leave of absence in September."

Martin takes Offensive Coordinator Job at Boston College (
"It was one of the toughest decisions I ever had to make in my career. I know a lot of people would think it would be an easy decision between the two places but it wasn't and I will always be indebted to the people in this community for the way they treated me and my family."

If you can't get Steve Logan, you might as well turn to Doug Martin (Eagle in Atlanta)
Why after picking Steve Logan over Spaz three years ago and scrapping his offense are we bringing in a Logan-disciple? Why are we changing offenses from a more prostyle to spread when we have been recruiting players into a prostyle scheme for three years. And why would a guy who clearly can get an inside opinion on all the nonsense that goes on between Flip and Spaz take the job?

Doug Martin to BC Paves Way for More Excuses (Soaring to Glory)
To me, it’s fairly obvious that by making this many changes to the offensive coordinator position, they’re either (1) doing it intentionally to give themselves a new excuse or (2) they’re sensationally incompetent, or both. A new offensive coordinator isn’t always a bad thing, and can be a net plus if done right, but one would think BC might aim a little higher, which they did not here. Whatever the case may be, Martin will be the fall guy if BC can’t score points next season, and that’s just the way Spaz and Gene like it.

This past season, the Eagles mustered just 18.2 points and 298.8 yards per game. The hope with this hire is that Martin will be able to push quarterback Chase Rettig to be one of the best in the ACC, a jump that he did not completely make from his freshman to sophomore year. Martin’s past offenses suggest an explosive air attack, but it remains to be seen how he will run the offense at BC.
