After a dreadful 4-8 season that was highlighted — or, lowlighted, I suppose — by an even more lackluster offense, Boston College is making a move at the offensive coordinator position.
The school announced today that former Kent State head coach and current New Mexico State OC Doug Martin would be coming to BC in the same role. The Aggies were ranked in the Top 20 of FBS teams in passing yards this year.
Martin replaces Kevin Rogers, who took a leave absence in September for unspecified health reasons.
“Doug Martin is an excellent addition to our staff,” coach Frank Spaziani said. “He brings a wealth of experience, not only as an offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach but as a head coach as well. Doug’s record of success, particularly in mentoring young quarterbacks, is impressive.”
“I’m really excited to join the football staff at such a prestigious academic institution,” Martin added. “I look forward to working with Coach Spaziani and the fine student-athletes at Boston College. It is an honor to have this opportunity.”
