Spaz back to coaching and BC still with openings

Former BC head coach Frank Spaziani is returning to the sidelines. He accepted a job as New Mexico State's Defensive Coordinator. The job reunites him with his final BC OC Doug Martin.  I plan to write about ageism and coaching after the full staff is in place, but I am surprised Spaz was hired. He will be 69 in April and is the same age Gary Tranquill was when he came out of retirement to coach at BC. It will be interesting to see how he does. The New Mexico State job really requires a miracle worker. I don't know all the details of BC's settlement with Spaz, but him taking this job probably confirms that he is no longer receiving any payments from BC. (Most of the buyouts have provisions when a coach takes a new job.)

The Iowa media looked into the Seth Wallace gossip and don't have any new news (and don't think there is much to it). We won't know more until Addazio fills his final two spots. Neither of the major coaching coaching sites have any rumor or gossip about who Addazio is considering for his openings.

Wish Spaz nothing but the best. He was a big part of some great wins for us as DC. Can't blame him for cashing in on Gene's stupidity.

Murphy's Law states that individuals advance in their profession until they reach their level of incompetence. It is time to move on. Spaz could not do the job. He was a great dc. It is time to forgive and forget. BC football is a mess. Bates can't handle the "fire in the kitchen". Time for a firefighter. Father Leahy needs to step in. A liability of 13 million is ridiculous. Now, it looks like Spaz carried a big payoff so that Addazio could be brought in. So, just who is printing the money?

The Peter Principle (rising to one incompetence) not Murphy's law (if it can go wrong, it will go wrong)

That is a good news that he is coming to hold this job because he have much experience in essay writing and this field. So we can hope that he is a perfect man for this job and i am sure that he will do this job very nicely.
