In its announcement confirming that Steve Addazio has been relieved of coaching duties at Boston College, Boston College Athletics announced that Rich Gunnell shall take over as interim head coach until a national search for a head coach is conducted.

Gunnell has served as wide receiver’s coach at Boston College for the past four years, and is a former wide receiver himself at BC.

This is a good move. This allows the coordinators to focus on game planning for the eventual bowl game, and allows Gunnell some time to work with the program, which is helpful if the department believes that he should have a role on the new staff.

BC announced that Gunnell will meet the press Monday morning at 9 AM with Martin Jarmond. BC announced that that will be the only media availability Martin Jarmond will have until he has named a new head coach at BC.
