Most of these names we have already seen linked to the Boston College job, with the exception of Butch Jones (Editorial note: No thank you). Washington has been the name mentioned the most by many, including former Boston College player Steve DeOssie who also broke the news of Addazio's firing, and Mark Blaudschun a former Globe writer. 

Pete Carmichael, who we will preview shortly is a very interesting option as well as he is a coach on a very exciting Saints team, with Boston College connections. If he could install his brand of offense here in Chestnut Hill he could really be a game changer. 

Brett Bielema is another new name that I havent' seen connected to Boston College, he is a long shot, but I'm not sure he is the type of coach that would "get" the unique challenges of Boston College. However he has a track record of taking mediocre programs and taking them to the next level. 

So what do you think? If you were a gambler who would you put your money on? Leave your coaching predictions below and be sure to check back often as we will continue to deliver news as it breaks.

So what do I think? I think this is a distraction put out by Chestnut Hill, a distraction of sorts, so no one in the media, fan base or Las Vegas will know who AD Jarmond is talking to, in contact with or what names make-up his list. In fact, I bet Martin had reached out to his first choice long before (weeks) he told Addazio he was fired.


What about Ron Rivera (Panthers Head Coach) ?. News Flash ! that he got the "thank you for your service, your services are no longer needed"
