With a 11-3 record in 2007, second year Boston College head coach Jeff Jagodzinski is looking to try and win the Atlantic Division in 2008.
Coaching BC to a 11-3 finish,Jagodzinski was part of the first BC team to win 11 games since 1940. With a win over Michigan State in the Champs Sports Bowl (BC’s eighth consecutive bowl game win and the longest active streak in college football), Jagodzinski surpassed Maryland head coach Ralph Friedgen and former Clemson head coach Ken Hatfield for the most wins by a first-year head coach in Atlantic Coast Conference history.
Named to his position Dec. 19, 2006, the 44-year-old Jagodzinski spent the previous season as the offensive coordinator for the Green Bay Packers. Before Green Bay, he spent three seasons with the Atlanta Falcons after five years with the Packers (1999-2003) as tight ends coach.
Although Jagodzinski came to BC from the professional ranks, he spent 14 years as a college coach, including 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.
