Boston College fires football coach Steve Addazio
Boston College fired coach Steve Addazio on Sunday, Boston 25's Sports director Tom Leyden has confirmed. 
Addazio finishes with 44-44 record in his sevens with the Eagles.  Boston College defeated Pittsburgh 26-19 on Saturday, but another uninspiring 6-6 record sealed the fate of Addazio.

BOSTON — Martin Jarmond, BC's athletic director issued the following statement in the team's announcement of Addazio's firing.

"I made a recommendation to Father Leahy to make a change in the leadership of our football program and he accepted my recommendation," said Jarmond. "We thank Steve for his leadership on and off the field in guiding our football program the last seven years. He inherited a program that had a down stretch and led us to six bowl games while recruiting high-character student-athletes that represented BC the right way. Our student-athletes have been pillars of the community and in the classroom and that's a credit to Steve and his staff. We wish Steve and his family well and thank him for his tenure in leading our football program."
