Addazio gets his extension
BC gave Steve Addazio a contract extension. As usual the financial terms were not disclosed, but the school did announce that the coach is under contract until 2020. The money doesn't really matter. These sorts of things are never really about money. It is about power and score keeping. We weren't losing Addazio this time around and doubt that anything in the new contract will ever keep him if another job comes along that he wants. However, BC is better off with a happy, motivated Addazio. If he (and his agent) wanted an extension right now, then BC rightly gave him one. He's earned it by college football standards.
Addazio is not perfect, but he's been much better than I ever thought he would be. The overachieving in Year 1 and Year 2 bought him some time and credibility with fans and recruits. Now as he tries to transition us from overachievers into contenders, he won't have any obstacles from BC. We've supported him publicly and financially. Soon we will have the facilities improvements. I now hope that Year 3 and Year 4 go so well that his next extension is another no-brainer like this one.
