Spaziani scores two-year extension at BC

Boston College has extended the contract of football coach Frank

Spaziani by two years through the 2015 season. His team recovered

from a 2-5 start to finish 7-5 and qualify for a bowl game for the

12th consecutive season.

Athletic director Gene DeFilippo said in a statement that

Spaziani is a man of ”uncompromised integrity and principle” who

has the program headed in the right direction.

Spaziani is 16-10 in two seasons. The Eagles play No. 13 Nevada

in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl in San Francisco on Jan. 9.

Spaziani was an assistant for the Eagles for 12 years before his

hiring by Boston College in 2009. He says he is ”very

appreciative” of the extension.
