Boston College Eagles History

Team History

The Boston College Eagles are a Division I team located in Chestnut Hill, Mass. Boston joined the Atlantic Coast Conference in 2005, following the lead of fellow Big East members Miami and Virginia Tech.

The Eagles experienced initial success in the ACC, capturing division titles in three of their first four seasons as a member. The 2007 campaign was especially memorable, as they matched the program record for wins (11) and rose to No. 2 in the Associated Press Top 25 poll. Guided by first-year coach Jeff Jagodzinski, the Eagles capped the season by beating Michigan State 24-21 in the Champs Sports Bowl.

Jagodzinski’s tenure ended unceremoniously when he was fired following the 2008 season. Athletic director Gene DeFilippo had warned him not to interview for the New York Jets head coaching job, but Jagodzinski defied orders and was dismissed within 24 hours of meeting with Jets brass. The Eagles went to bowls the next two seasons under Frank Spaziani but haven’t been able to recapture the success they had with Jagodzinski.

Boston College has been to 27 bowls altogether. Its most recent appearance came in the 2020 Birmingham Bowl when it lost 36-6 to Cincinnati. The Eagles are just 1-7 in their last eight trips, with their only victory coming against Maryland, 36-30, in the 2016 Quick Lane Bowl.

Jeff Hafley, a former co-defensive coordinator for Ohio State, succeeded Steve Addazio at the helm before the 2020 season. Hafley won six games each of his first two seasons but struggled to a 3-9 finish in 2023.

Boston College captured its lone conference championship in 2004 while in the Big East. Coached by Tom O’Brien, the Eagles went 9-3, climbed to No. 17 in the AP poll and defeated North Carolina 37-24 in the Continental Tire Bowl.

Despite experiencing only modest success, the Eagles have had a rich history at quarterback. Doug Flutie, the school’s all-time leader in passing yards, won the Heisman Trophy in 1984, and Matt Ryan captured the 2007 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, given to the nation’s top upperclassman quarterback. Ryan wound up going third overall in the 2008 NFL Draft to Atlanta. The Eagles also produced three-time NFL Pro Bowler Matt Hasselbeck and  Glenn Foley, the Big East’s Offensive Player of the Year in 2003.

The program’s alumni base also includes Luke Kuechly, the 2011 Butkus Award winner and seven-time NFL Pro Bowler, as well as AJ Dillon, Pete Mitchell, Andre Williams, William Green, Pete Kendall and Mathias Kiwanuka.
