BC's Harris sets rushing mark in loss

CHESTNUT HILL -- Montel Harris rushed 22 times for 108 yards and became the all-time leading rusher in Boston College history but the Eagles could not overcome a 15-point second-half deficit in a 27-19 loss to Wake Forest Saturday afternoon at Alumni Stadium. Harris now has 3,735 yards, setting the new record on a 26-yard run in the fourth quarter that preceded BC's first touchdown. 

In his second game back, tailback Harris looked strong despite not finding the end zone. His only miscue was a costly one as he fumbled at the Wake Forest 10-yard line midway through the third as BC was driving. Quarterback Chase Rettig completed 23-of-47 passes for 188 yards, one touchdown and one interception. 

Two weeks after he missed a potential game-winning 23-yard field as time expired against Duke, Eagles kicker Nate Freese was outstanding. He converted all three field goal attempts, including a career long 52-yard boot with eight seconds left in the...

Theo: Sox won't rush managerial search

The Red Sox have yet to commence the search for the successor to manager Terry Francona. GM Theo Epstein said that the team would prioritize a thorough process over a hasty resolution, and CEO Larry Lucchino said that the team had yet to begin the process of identifying the next Sox manager, since the team had not been anticipating that Francona's tenure would come to an end today.

"We hadn’t anticipated that at this point we’d be in this exact position. We made no efforts to discuss alternatives," said Lucchino. "We will now sit down and have that discussion.

"We’re going to do a thorough job. We want to get the right guy," added Epstein. "I think we’ll use the same process that we did eight years ago. ... Looking back at that process, I think we found the right guy."

Epstein said that major league managing experience is "preferred," but that the Sox wouldn't...

Sox owners tried to 'slow train' on Francona

In a press conference to discuss the departure of Terry Francona, Red Sox chairman Tom Werner said that the organization asked him if he would take more time to consider whether he wanted to return to the Boston dugout for a ninth season. However, Francona informed the team that he had already reached the conclusion that the organization would be better off with another manager in charge of the players.

Francona expressed the sentiment in a meeting this morning that featured principal owner John Henry (who suffered a minor injury on Friday and was unable to attend the news conference this evening), Werner, CEO Larry Lucchino, GM Theo Epstein, Assistant GM Ben Cherington and Francona.

"We came to this meeting today really wanting to hear Terry’s point of view about what went right this year, what went wrong this year. ... He expressed the feeling that we really did need a new voice," said Werner. "After that, we tried...

Francona praises Hale as possible successor

Former Red Sox manager Terry Francona, in the press conference to discuss his departure from Boston, suggested that he would like to see the Sox and other clubs consider his bench coach, DeMarlo Hale, for a job as manager.

"I hope [Hale] gets serious consideration, if not here then somewhere else," said Francona. "I hope he'll manage somewhere. He'll be very good."

Hale and Francona were fellow staff members with the Texas Rangers in 2002; prior to the 2006 season, Hale -- who interviewed for the Sox' managerial vacancy in 2003, in the process that ultimately led to Francona being hired -- joined Francona's staff as a third base coach, and he has spent the last two years as the Red Sox bench coach.

Prior to his big league coaching career, Hale managed in the minors for a total of nine seasons, including seven in the Red Sox organization. He was named Minor League Manager of the Year in 1999, when he led the Red Sox'...
