Frank Spaziani was fired as head coach of the Boston College Eagles football team Sunday after guiding the team to a dismal 2-10 record this past season.


Spaziani had been head coach of the Eagles since 2009 and posted a 22-29 mark overall. He had previously been an assistant at the school for 12 years.


“A personnel decision of this magnitude affects many people and is never taken lightly, but I felt a change was necessary,” new BC athletic director Brad Bates said. “It is with gratitude that we recognize the many contributions coach Spaziani has made to Boston College during his 16 years in Chestnut Hill. He displayed unwavering dedication and loyalty to our institution and our football student-athletes.”
