New Boston College coach Jeff Hafley hires coordinators

January 6

BOSTON (AP) — New Boston College coach Jeff Hafley has hired Tem Lukabu as defensive coordinator and Frank Cignetti Jr. as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

BC announced the moves Monday.

Lukabu was most recently the Cincinnati Bengals' linebackers coach. The previous season, he was the linebackers coach at Mississippi State, following a stint as quality control coach for the San Francisco 49ers, where he worked with Hafley.

Cignetti has spent 11 years coaching in the NFL, with the Rams, Giants, Packers, 49ers, Saints and Chiefs. He also has coached 19 years in college at North Carolina, California, Pitt, Rutgers, Fresno State and Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

Cignetti spent 2018 as the quarterbacks coach in Green Bay. Under his guidance, Aaron Rodgers threw for 4,442 yards and 25 touchdowns. He has also worked with Eli Manning and Sam Bradford.

Hafley was hired last month to replace Steve Addazio, who was fired after seven seasons. Hafley delayed joining the Eagles until finishing the College Football Playoffs with Ohio State, where he was the co-defensive coordinator.
