After letting everyone else report it, BC finally announced that Addazio hired Scot Loeffler as his new Offensive Coordinator. He joins the team after three seasons with Virginia Tech. Loeffler will also coach QBs. Included in the press release were some other staff changes. Justin Frye received a promotion and will now be run game coordinator and Oline coach. That is not too surprising. It gives a young coach a little more pay and little more responsibility. Brian White moves to Running Backs coach. Todd Fitch moves back to Wide Receivers coach. Fitch's demotion supposedly ruffled feathers, but how can it be a surprise? We had the worst offense in college football. Something had to be done. I wouldn't like to lose Fitch as a recruiter, but cannot blame him if he leaves.
Ben Alberts also received a promotion. This move surprised me as I had heard that he was on the hotseat somewhat for not producing more on the recruiting trail. Al Washington moves back to Defense as an Outside LB coach and also takes on Special Teams. I would like to see Washington stay on one side of the ball so that he can eventually be groomed for a coordinator spot.
While I believe that Loeffler, Frye and Alberts' roles are all set in stone, I think the others are all still in pencil. BC still has one open staff position. Based on need, you assume it will be a defensive backs coach, but whoever they find could set in play another shift. Also, if Fitch does leave, some of the Offensive guys could get moved.
