After a rocky end to the regular season marked with many highs and many lows, Steve Addazio has reportedly been extended.
That is according to reports by Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports and Eagle Action’s Riley Overend, who note that the extension is for two additional years through the 2022 season.

“While all of us wish our regular season in football had ended with more victories, we took important steps in the right direction this year: returning to the national rankings for the first time since 2008, capturing the nation’s attention with ESPN’s College GameDay on-campus, being in the running for the conference championship in November and playing in another post-season bowl,” BC Athletic Director Martin Jarmond said in a statement.
Overend noted that Addazio had signed another two year extension in 2014, but this is may be an easier contract to buy out for BC if necessary.

This news will probably be met with mixed reactions (just scroll down) but one thing is clear: the administration appears to be moving towards more time with Steve Addazio at the helm of the Boston College Football program.
