Jags talks about BC and other links
For the first time since BC fired him, Jags spoke to the media. It was mostly Tampa folks and mostly related to what he was going to do in the NFL. You can read the whole interview here. This is what he had to say about BC:
"I had an opportunity to talk to one of the 32 teams at the pinnacle of your profession," Jagodzinski said. "I didn't see anything wrong with that. But there was a difference of opinion."
Jagodzinski hired Jan. 29 by Tampa Bay as its new offensive coordinator, spent time with the local media Tuesday discussing his plans in that role under new head coach Raheem Morris. But he also was asked several times about his departure from BC.
"The two years that I spent at BC, it was a great, great experience," Jagodzinski said. "I had a chance to be with a bunch of great kids. I had a chance to coach in the ACC as a head coach. We won a lot of football games. It was a positive experience. That chapter of my life is closed and I'm moving on. I really believe that there's a plan for myself and for my family and that's the plan that I'm living out right now."
This Tampa writer is already calling Jags a climber and salesman.
Based on the initial reactions on the message boards I don't think anything Jags says is going to change opinions. There are those, like me, who don't begrudge Jags and think Gene mishandled this and those who think Jags is a liar and disloyal. Hopefully this is the end of it all.
Speaking of unfortunate situations between BC and a former member of the community...the Sean Williams case just gets weirder. First Skinner said that he did not know about the restraining order and said "yes" when Williams asked to attend the game. A Brighton judge threw out the warrant for Williams' court date.
In better news, highly regarded QB Joe Boisture enjoyed his visit to BC.
