BOSTON — Boston College has extended football coach Steve Addazio’s contract by two years through 2020 after he led them to 14 wins in his first two seasons.
The Eagles (7-5) will face Penn State in the Pinstripe Bowl on Dec. 27.
Addazio replaced Frank Spaziani after the Eagles went 2-10 in 2012 and led them to a 7-6 record, including a 42-19 loss to Arizona in the AdvoCare V100 Bowl.
“To lead a team to 14 wins and two consecutive bowl games during what was supposed to be a rebuilding process is a great accomplishment,” BC athletic director Brad Bates said.
Addazio took over a program that had consecutive losing seasons for the first time in 14 years.
