ESPN: ACC hot seat update
From Heather Dinich of ESPN:
1. Boston College coach Frank Spaziani. His seat got hotter the minute athletic director Gene DeFilippo announced he would retire on Sept. 30, but BC’s 0-2 start and 1-3 overall record is much more of an immediate concern than the search for a new athletic director. One thing BC fans could typically count on was a stingy defense, and even that’s not a given anymore. BC is No. 74 in the country in scoring defense, allowing almost 30 points per game, and the rushing defense is allowing almost 200 yards per game.
2. Virginia Tech offensive coordinator Bryan Stinespring. If the Hokies’ offense doesn’t show some signs of life soon, Virginia Tech could be in trouble this season and a staff change wouldn’t be shocking. Frank Beamer has been loyal to a fault, but Stinespring isn’t the only one on staff who needs to do a better job. Receivers coach Kevin Sherman and offensive line coach Curt Newsome should shoulder some of the blame for this year’s struggles. Virginia Tech had to replace eight starters on offense, including four on the offensive line, and the Hokies are No. 61 in the country in scoring offense and No. 10 in the ACC in total offense.
