Steve Addazio, Boston College
Steve Addazio has been the head coach at Boston College for four seasons, and 2016 was easily his best year. The Eagles went 7-6 and won the Quick Lane Bowl against Maryland, 36-30.
So why is 2017 so important for him? Because of exactly what has been mentioned above: 2016 was his best season.
Addazio went 7-6 in both 2013 and 2014 with two bowl game losses. He then put up a 3-9 season in 2015 that saw Boston College lose to every single ACC team on its schedule.
Despite the big bowl win to end the 2016 season, BC still could only manage two ACC wins in 2016, beating North Carolina State and barely beating Wake Forest
So, with an Athletic Director who’s in the last year of his contract and only two wins over conference opponents in the last two seasons, can Addazio make it past 2017 if the Eagles can’t start turning it around in conference?
The answer to that question is a big, fat no.
Boston College needs to pick up a few more ACC wins in 2017 in order for Addazio to keep his job.
