    "Spell His Last Name And You Win The Spelling Bee"

    Jeff Jagodzinski or "Jags" served as the offensive coordinator for the Green Bay Packers prior to becoming the head coach at BC. He signed a five-year contract in December, 2006 to become the 33rd head coach in the history of Boston College football. In his first season as head coach he is 8-0. He replaced Tom O'Brien who is now the head coach at NC State.

    Although Jagodzinski comes to BC from the professional ranks, he spent 14 years as a college coach, most recently two successful seasons (1997-98) as offensive coordinator at Boston College. At BC, his offenses averaged more than 400 yards per game in each of his two seasons. In addition, during both years the Eagles allowed the fewest sacks in the Big East, going from last to first in 1997.

    He has already been involved in a great game when his BC Eagles came from behind late in the game against Va. Tech to win 14-10. "Probably the best win I've ever been around," he said about 15 minutes after Boston College somehow maintained its unblemished record and national title hopes.

    Prior to his coaching stint at Boston College, Jagodzinski served on coaching staffs at East Carolina (1989-96), Louisiana State (1987-88), Northern Illinois (1986), and the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater (1985), his alma mater.
