Boston Fox affiliates are reporting that BC is close to hiring former UMass coach and current Pittsburgh Steelers Quarterback Coach Mark Whipple. I have heard that Whipple is a finalist, but that nothing is done. Eagle Insider Poster BCWest, who has a solid track record in this process, is saying that Whipple and one other guy are in the mix and the decision is days, not weeks away.
I would be very happy with the Whipple hire. We’ll see how it plays out. In the meantime here are some old links on Whip.

Spaz will coach the Car Care Bowl. His title is interim. This makes sense and I think Spaz and the current staff can get us ready to play. Spaz deserves thanks for doing this since it is highly unlikely that he will get a shot at the real job.
