Boston College selects Spaziani

By Howard Ulman

BOSTON ó Frank Spaziani stayed at Boston College even though he was disappointed when he was passed over for the head coaching job in 2006.
That loyalty paid off Tuesday, when the longtime assistant was promoted to the top spot. Spaziani, 61, built top defenses during 10 years as a coordinator. He succeeds Jeff Jagodzinski, who was fired.
Spaziani had interviewed for the job that went to Jagodzinski and was one of two assistants retained from the staff of Tom O’Brien, who left to take over at N.C. State.
Spaziani was the interim coach for a 25-24 win over Navy in the 2006 Meineke Car Care Bowl.
“Everybody gets disappointments in life,” he said. “It’s what we tell our players. How are you going to handle it? Are you going to go backwards or forwards?”
