Boston College received some rather stunning news today. According to multiple reports, Ryan Day will leave his post as offensive coordinator at Boston College for the NFL.
Boston College OC/QBs coach Ryan Day is expected to join #Eagles as QBs coach, league source said. Replaces Bill Musgrave.— Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) January 22, 2015
Day, who took the job when Steve Addazio brought him back to the Heights from Temple, has been a part of the BC system since 2004 when he was a graduate assistant. He met Addazio in Florida the same year, but headed back to BC where he became the wide receiver coach from 2007-2011. He went to Temple in 2012 to become the offensive coordinator under Steve Addazio, and returned to BC to present to become the OC/QB Coach. He will be joining Chip Kelly, who he played under as a quarterback at UNH.
Under Day's tutelage, Andre Williams became the school's first-ever 2,000+ yard rusher last season en route to a Doak Walker Award and a trip to New York as a Heisman Trophy finalist. This past season, Day helped Tyler Murphy become the all-time single season leading rushing quarterback in ACC history (1,179 yards). BC finished 20th and 15th nationally in rushing over the last two seasons. The passing game ranked 114th last season and 124th this season. He helped implement two drastically different offenses last year with a very traditional run heavy offense, and this season with a option offense.
There is no word on who will be considered to be his replacement either internally or externally. As in the past, when BC has lost assistant coaches to the NFL, the school likely won't confirm the news until Philadelphia makes the hire official. We will keep you up to date on any updates on this situation.
Best of luck with the other Eagles, Coach Day!
