As for what it means to BC, the timing isn't great. While not an ace recruiter, Dawson was still the lead guy on some key prospects. I think our Special Teams were pretty good, but we weren't doing anything that was not replaceable. Dawson also helped out with Defensive Line. It will be interesting if that area is addressed when we bring in a replacement.
Spaz now has nine staffers officially. He has to bring in one more. We know he's interviewed multiple Offensive Coordinator candidates. Given the last line of the press release ("Spaziani said he would make further announcements about his staff in the near future."), I think we will see more than just a new OC.
